Gaming performance

Let's see how good Xeon E-2176M and Core i5-8500B are for gaming compared with game system requirements. Remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect real performance inaccurately.

Advantages of Intel Xeon E-2176M

6.3% faster in synthetic tests
Less power hungry (45 vs 65 watts)
HyperThreading (allows one physical CPU function as two logical ones. It increases performance, since while one logical CPU is waiting for data, the second may still do useful work)
Quick Sync (hardware acceleration of video encoding and decoding for Intel CPUs. Speeds up video encoding by times, but at the cost of somewhat lower quality)
Virtualization (Hardware acceleration of virtual machines)
AES-NI (Advanced Encryption Standard New Instructions - additional instructions for hardware acceleration of AES encryption and decryption)
ECCMemory
DisplayPortMenu
HDMIMenu

Advantages of Intel Core i5-8500B

Somewhat newer (2 April 2018 vs 1 March 2018)
Cheaper ($192 vs $450)
TXT (Trusted Execution Technology - protects the system against viruses and rootkits residing in BIOS or in a boot sector)

So, Xeon E-2176M or Core i5-8500B?

Technical City couldn't decide between Intel Xeon E-2176M and Intel Core i5-8500B. The differences in performance seem too small.
