Core i7-4700HQ vs Core i5-6402P comparison
According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Core i7-4700HQ is faster than the Core i5-6402P. Despite this, the Core i5-6402P has the advantage in our gaming benchmark.
When comparing these CPUs we notice that they have the same number of cores but the Core i7-4700HQ has more threads. With our hardware info, we find that the Core i5-6402P has a slightly higher clock speed than the Core i7-4700HQ. In addition, both chips have the same turbo speed. A Core i7-4700HQ CPU outputs less heat than a Core i5-6402P CPU because of its slightly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption.
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. Indeed, the Core i7-4700HQ has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
