Core i7-6500U vs Pentium 5405U specs and performance
According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Core i7-6500U is faster than the Pentium 5405U. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Pentium 5405U in all gaming tests too.
Our spec comparison shows that they have an identical amount of cores and the same number of threads. Both these chips have an identical TDP (Thermal Design Power). 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.
