it doesn't work like that. otherwise benchmarks would be that simple. please prove me wrong or stop spreading the misleading BS, that's wrong of you to do, the opposite of teaching. it's 20% gooder??? what does that even mean?fishmonkey wrote: ↑Fri Aug 21, 2020 11:56 pmonce you've got more tracks than cores they are distributed across your cores anyway.
from a purely processor cycles point of view, 8 x 3.8 = 30.4 GHz, and 10 x 3.6 = 36 GHz. that means that the i9 has nearly 20% more processor cycles per second than the i7.
the number of cores have to do with the number of apps you have open.
the clock speed has to do with how quickly the CPU can respond to those apps.
the intention of the chips design dictates where those clock cycles are applied.
there's a whole balance of architecture there that you're ignoring. tradeoffs everywhere. OK, it's 20% gooder, go buy it.
