Core i7-11390H vs Core i7-11800H benchmarks
In our benchmarks, the Core i7-11800H beats the Core i7-11390H in overall performance. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Core i7-11390H in all gaming tests too.
When comparing core counts for these CPUs, we notice that the Core i7-11800H has significantly more cores with 8 cores compared to the Core i7-11390H that has 4 cores. It also has more threads than the Core i7-11390H. A Core i7-11390H CPU outputs less heat than a Core i7-11800H CPU because of its slightly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption.
Most CPUs have more threads than cores. This technology, colloquially called hyperthreading, improves performance by splitting a core into multiple virtual ones. This provides more efficient utilisation of a core. Indeed, the Core i7-11390H has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
