Xeon E5-2676 v3 vs Xeon E5-2678 v3 comparison

Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Xeon E5-2678 v3 performs better than the Xeon E5-2676 v3. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Xeon E5-2676 v3 in all gaming tests too.

Our spec comparison shows that they have an identical amount of cores and the same number of threads. 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 E5-2676 v3 has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
