Xeon E5-2696 v4 vs Xeon E5-2699 v3 benchmarks
Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Xeon E5-2699 v3 performs better than the Xeon E5-2696 v4. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Xeon E5-2696 v4 in all gaming tests too.
When comparing core counts for these CPUs, we notice that the Xeon E5-2696 v4 has slightly more cores with 22 cores compared to the Xeon E5-2699 v3 that has 18 cores. It also has more threads than the Xeon E5-2699 v3. 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 E5-2696 v4 has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
