Core i7-6567U vs Xeon E3-1245 specs and performance
In our benchmarks, the Xeon E3-1245 beats the Core i7-6567U in overall performance. Despite this, the Core i7-6567U has the advantage in our gaming benchmark.
When comparing core counts for these CPUs, we notice that the Xeon E3-1245 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. In terms of clock speed, the Core i7-6567U and Xeon E3-1245 are identical in this regard. Despite this, the Xeon E3-1245 has a slightly higher turbo speed. A Core i7-6567U CPU outputs less heat than a Xeon E3-1245 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 i7-6567U has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
