EPYC 7742 vs Xeon E-2288G comparison
In our benchmarks, the Xeon E-2288G beats the EPYC 7742 in overall performance. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the EPYC 7742 in all gaming tests too.
In terms of the number of cores of each of these CPUs, the EPYC 7742 has significantly more cores than the Xeon E-2288G. Indeed, the EPYC 7742 has 64 cores compared to 8 cores found in the Xeon E-2288G. It also has more threads than the Xeon E-2288G. With our hardware info, we find that the Xeon E-2288G has a significantly higher clock speed than the EPYC 7742. Also, the Xeon E-2288G has a significantly higher turbo speed. The Xeon E-2288G outputs less heat than EPYC 7742 thanks to a significantly 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 EPYC 7742 has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
