Xeon E-2186M vs Xeon E5-2667 v2 comparison

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Xeon E5-2667 v2 is faster than the Xeon E-2186M. Despite this, the Xeon E-2186M has the advantage in our gaming benchmark.

In terms of the number of cores of each of these CPUs, the Xeon E5-2667 v2 has slightly more cores than the Xeon E-2186M. Indeed, the Xeon E5-2667 v2 has 8 cores compared to 6 cores found in the Xeon E-2186M. It also has more threads than the Xeon E-2186M. With our hardware info, we find that the Xeon E5-2667 v2 has a slightly higher clock speed than the Xeon E-2186M. Despite this, the Xeon E-2186M has a slightly higher turbo speed. A Xeon E-2186M CPU outputs less heat than a Xeon E5-2667 v2 CPU because of its 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 Xeon E-2186M has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
