  • The i7-3630QM is based on more efficient Ivy Bridge core, which offers from 2% to 8 %, or 5% on average better performance than similar clocked Sandy Bridge processors.
  • This microprocessor has higher operating frequency than the Intel Core i7-2670QM processor.
  • The Intel i7-3630QM includes F16C instructions, that were introduced in modern microprocessors not too far ago. Although these extensions are not broadly used by programs yet, their support should improve in future applications.

i7-2670QM vs i7-3630QM specifications comparison

The charts below show the difference between Core i7-3630QM and i7-2670QM most important characteristics. These features, together with an IPC (instructions per cycle) number, determine how well a microprocessor performs. The "Number of cores / threads" graph shows the number of cores (darker area). Lighter area on the graph corresponds to the number of additional threads, provided by Hyper-Threading technology. The "Operating frequency" chart uses dark color for base frequency, whereas lighter area is for extra frequency, provided by Turbo feature. Darker area on the "On-chip cache" graph is for the On-chip L2 cache. Lighter area is for the L3 cache cache. While the L3 cache cache is usually larger than the On-chip L2 cache, it is always slower.
