Xeon E5-1660 v4 vs Xeon E5-1680 v3 specs and performance
According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Xeon E5-1660 v4 is faster than the Xeon E5-1680 v3. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Xeon E5-1680 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. Both the Xeon E5-1660 v4 and Xeon E5-1680 v3 have the same clock speed. Furthermore, both these CPUs have identical turbo speeds. Both these chips have an identical TDP (Thermal Design Power). 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 E5-1660 v4 has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
