Core i7-8665U vs Pentium Gold 7505 comparison

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Pentium Gold 7505 is faster than the Core i7-8665U. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Core i7-8665U in all gaming tests too.

With info from our database, we find that the Core i7-8665U has significantly more cores with 4 cores whereas the Pentium Gold 7505 has 2 cores. It also has more threads than the Pentium Gold 7505. 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.

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 i7-8665U has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
