    20-30% more?! No way even in synthetic benchmarks. It's more like 4-5% on average. This is due to the logical cores being substantial less powerful than the physical cores.
  2. Both are quad core, the difference is on the number of thread, see the links.



    Edit: Sorry, I think in the mistake.
