Core i5-8600K vs Core i7-10810U comparison
In our benchmarks, the Core i5-8600K beats the Core i7-10810U in overall performance. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Core i7-10810U in all gaming tests too.
Info from our database shows that they both have the same core count but the Core i7-10810U has more threads. With our hardware info, we find that the Core i5-8600K has a significantly higher clock speed than the Core i7-10810U. Despite this, the Core i7-10810U has a slightly higher turbo speed. The Core i7-10810U outputs less heat than Core i5-8600K thanks to a significantly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption. When comparing cache sizes, these CPUs have an identical amount of L2 cache. The Core i7-10810U also has slightly more L3 cache.
Modern CPUs generally have more logical cores than physical cores, this means that each core is split into multiple virtual cores, improving efficiency for parallel workloads. For instance, the Core i5-8600K has the same number of threads as cores. This means the the CPU does not support hyperthreading.
