Xeon E5-2630L vs Core i7-9850HL specs and performance

Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Xeon E5-2630L performs better than the Core i7-9850HL. Despite this, the Core i7-9850HL has the advantage in our gaming benchmark.

Our spec comparison shows that they have an identical amount of cores and the same number of threads. With our hardware info, we find that the Xeon E5-2630L has a slightly higher clock speed than the Core i7-9850HL. Despite this, the Core i7-9850HL has a significantly higher turbo speed. The Core i7-9850HL outputs less heat than Xeon E5-2630L 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 E5-2630L has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
