Intel Core i7-3630QM vs i7-4700MQ

Mini Review

Intel Core i7-3630QM advantages

  • The Core i7-3630QM has 4% better power consumption than the i7-4700MQ microprocessor.

Intel Core i7-4700MQ advantages

  • This CPU uses more efficient Haswell core, which performs better by 6% on average, or by 2% - 10% depending on task compared to similar clocked Ivy Bridge CPUs.
  • The microprocessor includes AVX2 and FMA3 instructions, that were introduced in modern microprocessors not too far ago. Even though these extensions are not widely used by applications yet, their support should improve in future programs.

i7-3630QM vs i7-4700MQ specifications comparison

The graphs below show the difference between Intel Core i7-4700MQ and i7-3630QM most important characteristics. These features, as well as an IPC (instructions per cycle) number, determine how well a CPU performs. The "Number of cores / threads" graph displays the number of cores (darker area). Lighter area on the graph corresponds to the number of extra threads, provided by Hyper-Threading technology. The "Operating frequency" chart uses dark color to represent base frequency, while lighter area is for additional 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. Although the L3 cache cache is usually larger than the On-chip L2 cache, it is always slower.
