Core i7-8750H vs Core i7-6820HQ specs and performance

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Core i7-8750H is faster than the Core i7-6820HQ. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Core i7-6820HQ in all gaming tests too.

When comparing core counts for these CPUs, we notice that the Core i7-8750H has significantly more cores with 6 cores compared to the Core i7-6820HQ that has 4 cores. It also has more threads than the Core i7-6820HQ. With our hardware info, we find that the Core i7-6820HQ has a slightly higher clock speed than the Core i7-8750H. Despite this, the Core i7-8750H has a slightly higher turbo speed. 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.

Modern CPUs generally have more logical cores than physical cores, this means that each core is split into multiple virtual cores, improving efficiency for parallel workloads. Indeed, the Core i7-8750H has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
