Core i7-8665U vs Xeon E5-430 benchmarks

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Core i7-8665U is faster than the Xeon E5-430. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Xeon E5-430 in all gaming tests too.

Info from our database shows that they both have the same core count but the Core i7-8665U has more threads. These CPUs have different clock speeds. Indeed, the Xeon E5-430 has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Core i7-8665U. A Core i7-8665U CPU outputs less heat than a Xeon E5-430 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 i7-8665U has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
