Xeon E5-2440 vs Xeon E5-2630 specs and performance
According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Xeon E5-2630 is faster than the Xeon E5-2440. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Xeon E5-2440 in all gaming tests too.
Info from our database shows that they both have the same core count and the same number of threads. With our hardware info, we find that the Xeon E5-2440 has a slightly higher clock speed than the Xeon E5-2630. Also, the Xeon E5-2440 has a slightly higher turbo speed. 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.
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 E5-2440 has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
