Xeon E-2144G vs Xeon E5-2620 v3 specs and performance
Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Xeon E-2144G performs better than the Xeon E5-2620 v3. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Xeon E5-2620 v3 in all gaming tests too.
When comparing core counts for these CPUs, we notice that the Xeon E5-2620 v3 has significantly more cores with 6 cores compared to the Xeon E-2144G that has 4 cores. It also has more threads than the Xeon E-2144G. With our hardware info, we find that the Xeon E-2144G has a significantly higher clock speed than the Xeon E5-2620 v3. Also, the Xeon E-2144G has a slightly higher turbo speed. A Xeon E-2144G CPU outputs less heat than a Xeon E5-2620 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 Xeon E-2144G has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
