Core i7-3820QM vs Xeon E5-2609 v4 comparison
According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Xeon E5-2609 v4 is faster than the Core i7-3820QM. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Core i7-3820QM in all gaming tests too.
With info from our database, we find that the Xeon E5-2609 v4 has significantly more cores with 8 cores whereas the Core i7-3820QM has 4 cores. But they both have the same number of threads. With our hardware info, we find that the Core i7-3820QM has a significantly higher clock speed than the Xeon E5-2609 v4. A Core i7-3820QM CPU outputs less heat than a Xeon E5-2609 v4 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 i7-3820QM has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
