Core i7-6500U vs Celeron G4900 specs and performance
Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Core i7-6500U performs better than the Celeron G4900. Despite this, the Celeron G4900 has the advantage in our gaming benchmark.
When comparing these CPUs we notice that they have the same number of cores but the Core i7-6500U has more threads. Our comparison shows that the Celeron G4900 has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Core i7-6500U. A Core i7-6500U CPU outputs less heat than a Celeron G4900 CPU because of its significantly 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 i7-6500U has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
