Intel Core i5-6198DU vs Intel Core i5-6300U

Intel Core i5-6198DU

► remove Intel 6198DU

The Intel Core i5-6198DU is an ULV (ultra low voltage) dual-core SoC based on the Skylake architecture and has been launched in September 2015. The CPU can be found in ultrabooks as well as normal notebooks. In addition to two CPU cores with Hyper-Threading clocked at 2.3 - 2.8 GHz (2 cores: max. 2.7 GHz), the chip also integrates an HD Graphics 510 GPU and a dual-channel DDR4-2133/DDR3L-1600 memory controller. The SoC is manufactured using a 14 nm process with FinFET transistors. Compared to the similar Core i5-6200U, the i5-6198DU offers a slower GPU (HD Graphics 510 versus 520).

Architecture

Skylake replaces both Haswell and Broadwell and brings the same microarchitecture in every TDP class from 4.5 to 45 W. The extensive improvements of the Skylake design include increased out-of-order buffers, optimized prefetching and branch prediction as well as additional performance gains through Hyper-Threading. Overall, however, performance per clock has been increased by only 5 to 10 percent (compared to Haswell) respectively under 5 percent (compard to Broadwell), which is quite modest for a new architecture ("Tock").

CPU Performance

According to the specified clock rates and the improved architecture, the Core i5-6198DU should perform just slightly below the former Core i7-5500U (Broadwell, 15 W) and is similar fast as the Core i5-6200U. Thus, the CPU has sufficient power for office and multimedia purposes as well as more demanding applications and multitasking.

Graphics

The integrated graphics unit called HD Graphics 510 represents the "GT1" version of the Skylake GPU (Intel Gen. 9). The 12 Execution Units, also called EUs, are clocked at 300 - 1000 MHz. The HD 520 in the 6200U for comparison features 24 EUs.

Power Consumption

Specified at a TDP of 15 W (including CPU, GPU and memory controller), the CPU is best suited for small notebooks and ultrabooks (11-inches and above). Optionally, the TDP can be lowered to 7.5 watts (cTDP down, 800 MHz clock speed), reducing both heat dissipation and performance and allowing even more compact designs. Furthermore, there is the option to increase the TDP to 25 W (cTDP up, 2.4 GHz).

Intel Core i5-6300U

► remove Intel 6300U

The Intel Core i5-6300U is an ULV (ultra low voltage) dual-core SoC based on the Skylake architecture and has been launched in September 2015. The CPU can be found in ultrabooks as well as normal notebooks. In addition to two CPU cores with Hyper-Threading clocked at 2.4 - 3.0 GHz (2 cores: max. 2.9 GHz), the chip also integrates an HD Graphics 520 GPU and a dual-channel DDR4-2133/DDR3L-1600 memory controller. The SoC is manufactured using a 14 nm process with FinFET transistors.

According to the specified clock rates and the improved architecture, the Core i5-6300U should perform similar to (or slightly above) the former Core i7-5500U (Broadwell, 15 W). Thus, the CPU has sufficient power for office and multimedia purposes as well as more demanding applications and multitasking.

Graphics

The integrated graphics unit called HD Graphics 520 represents the "GT2" version of the Skylake GPU (Intel Gen. 9). The 24 Execution Units, also called EUs, are clocked at 300 - 1000 MHz and offer a performance somewhere in range of a dedicated GeForce 820M. Games of 2015 can thus be played smoothly in low settings.
