Xeon W-2245 vs Core i5-12500H benchmarks

In our benchmarks, the Core i5-12500H beats the Xeon W-2245 in overall performance. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Xeon W-2245 in all gaming tests too.

In terms of the number of cores of each of these CPUs, the Core i5-12500H has significantly more cores than the Xeon W-2245. Indeed, the Core i5-12500H has 12 cores compared to 8 cores found in the Xeon W-2245. But they both have the same number of threads. With our hardware info, we find that the Xeon W-2245 has a significantly higher clock speed than the Core i5-12500H. In addition, both chips have the same turbo speed. The Core i5-12500H outputs less heat than Xeon W-2245 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 W-2245 has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
