Ryzen 5 2500U vs Xeon E3-1260L comparison

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Xeon E3-1260L is faster than the Ryzen 5 2500U. Despite this, the Ryzen 5 2500U has the advantage in our gaming benchmark.

Info from our database shows that they both have the same core count and the same number of threads. These CPUs have different clock speeds. Indeed, the Xeon E3-1260L has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Ryzen 5 2500U. Despite this, the Ryzen 5 2500U has a slightly higher turbo speed. A Ryzen 5 2500U CPU outputs less heat than a Xeon E3-1260L 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 Ryzen 5 2500U has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
