Core i7-6567U vs Core i7-3630QM benchmarks
In our benchmarks, the Core i7-6567U beats the Core i7-3630QM in overall performance. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Core i7-3630QM in all gaming tests too.
When comparing core counts for these CPUs, we notice that the Core i7-3630QM has significantly more cores with 4 cores compared to the Core i7-6567U that has 2 cores. It also has more threads than the Core i7-6567U. Our comparison shows that the Core i7-6567U has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Core i7-3630QM. Also, the Core i7-6567U has a slightly higher turbo speed. A Core i7-6567U CPU outputs less heat than a Core i7-3630QM 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 i7-6567U has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
