According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Core i7-5930K is faster than the Core i7-5700HQ. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Core i7-5700HQ in all gaming tests too.
In terms of the number of cores of each of these CPUs, the Core i7-5930K has significantly more cores than the Core i7-5700HQ. Indeed, the Core i7-5930K has 6 cores compared to 4 cores found in the Core i7-5700HQ. It also has more threads than the Core i7-5700HQ. These CPUs have different clock speeds. Indeed, the Core i7-5930K has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Core i7-5700HQ. Also, the Core i7-5930K has a slightly higher turbo speed. A Core i7-5700HQ CPU outputs less heat than a Core i7-5930K CPU because of its significantly 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 i7-5700HQ has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
