Xeon E3-1231 v3 vs Xeon E3-1275L v3 comparison
Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Xeon E3-1231 v3 performs better than the Xeon E3-1275L v3. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Xeon E3-1275L v3 in all gaming tests too.
When comparing these CPUs we notice that they have the same number of cores and the same number of threads. With our hardware info, we find that the Xeon E3-1231 v3 has a slightly higher clock speed than the Xeon E3-1275L v3. Despite this, the Xeon E3-1275L v3 has a slightly higher turbo speed. The Xeon E3-1275L v3 outputs less heat than Xeon E3-1231 v3 thanks to a 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 Xeon E3-1231 v3 has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
