Comparison of technical characteristics between computer processors, with the Intel Xeon W-2145 on one hand, and the Intel Core i5-8600K on the other hand. The first has a total of 8 cores, 16 threads, a maximum frequency of 4.5 GHz, a thermal design power of 140 W. The second has 6 cores, 6 threads, its turbo frequency reaches 4.3 GHz, its TDP is set to 95 W. The following table also allows us to compare the lithography, the number of transistors (if indicated), the amount of cache memory, the maximum RAM memory capacity, the type of memory accepted, the launch date, the maximum number of PCIe lines , the values obtained in Geekbench 4 and Cinebench R15, as well as the price.
