Core i7-11850H vs Xeon E5-2637 v2 benchmarks

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Core i7-11850H is faster than the Xeon E5-2637 v2. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Xeon E5-2637 v2 in all gaming tests too.

In terms of the number of cores of each of these CPUs, the Core i7-11850H has significantly more cores than the Xeon E5-2637 v2. Indeed, the Core i7-11850H has 8 cores compared to 4 cores found in the Xeon E5-2637 v2. It also has more threads than the Xeon E5-2637 v2. With our hardware info, we find that the Xeon E5-2637 v2 has a slightly higher clock speed than the Core i7-11850H. Despite this, the Core i7-11850H has a slightly higher turbo speed. A Core i7-11850H CPU outputs less heat than a Xeon E5-2637 v2 CPU because of its significantly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption.

The more cores a CPU has, the better the overall performance will be in parallel workloads such as multitasking. Many CPUs have more threads than cores, this means that each physical core is split into multiple logical cores, making them more efficient. Indeed, the Core i7-11850H has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
