Core i7-6700T vs Xeon E5-1630 v4 benchmarks
According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Xeon E5-1630 v4 is faster than the Core i7-6700T. Despite this, the Core i7-6700T has the advantage in our gaming benchmark.
When comparing these CPUs we notice that they have the same number of cores and the same number of threads. These CPUs have different clock speeds. Indeed, the Xeon E5-1630 v4 has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Core i7-6700T. Also, the Xeon E5-1630 v4 has a slightly higher turbo speed. A Core i7-6700T CPU outputs less heat than a Xeon E5-1630 v4 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 i7-6700T has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
