Core i7-8850H vs Xeon E5-2630L v3 comparison
In our benchmarks, the Xeon E5-2630L v3 beats the Core i7-8850H in overall performance. Despite this, the Core i7-8850H has the advantage in our gaming benchmark.
When comparing core counts for these CPUs, we notice that the Xeon E5-2630L v3 has slightly more cores with 8 cores compared to the Core i7-8850H that has 6 cores. It also has more threads than the Core i7-8850H. Our comparison shows that the Core i7-8850H has a significantly higher clock speed compared to the Xeon E5-2630L v3. Also, the Core i7-8850H has a significantly higher turbo speed. A Core i7-8850H CPU outputs less heat than a Xeon E5-2630L v3 CPU because of its slightly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption.
Most CPUs have more threads than cores. This technology, colloquially called hyperthreading, improves performance by splitting a core into multiple virtual ones. This provides more efficient utilisation of a core. Indeed, the Core i7-8850H has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
