Core i7-8700T vs Xeon E5-1680 v4 comparison
In our benchmarks, the Xeon E5-1680 v4 beats the Core i7-8700T in overall performance. Despite this, the Core i7-8700T has the advantage in our gaming benchmark.
In terms of the number of cores of each of these CPUs, the Xeon E5-1680 v4 has slightly more cores than the Core i7-8700T. Indeed, the Xeon E5-1680 v4 has 8 cores compared to 6 cores found in the Core i7-8700T. It also has more threads than the Core i7-8700T. Our comparison shows that the Xeon E5-1680 v4 has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Core i7-8700T. In addition, both chips have the same turbo speed. A Core i7-8700T CPU outputs less heat than a Xeon E5-1680 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 i7-8700T has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
