Purely guesswork... that the 12MB cache is already huge and the 16MB not
much more impactful.
Obviously we ignore the number of cores.
Clock frequency should have the biggest impact for single-threaded apps,
which primarily points to the Xeon, but I don't know how to judge the i9
turbo being faster.
Probably on a laptop you won't have the thermal overhead to run turbo too

By the numbers...

PassMark - CPU Mark - Single Thread Performance
Intel Xeon E-2276M @ 2.80GHz      2,684 (78%)          $450.00
Intel Core i9-9880H @ 2.30GHz       2,548  (74%)         $556.00
