Intel Core i7-3630QM advantages
- This CPU has F16C instructions. While these extensions are not widely used by programs yet, their support should improve in future apps.
- The processor is 4% more energy efficient.
Intel Core i7-4700MQ advantages
- The Haswell core, employed by the CPU, is more efficient. It is faster by 6% on average than Ivy Bridge processors when running at the same frequency.
- The Intel Core i7-4700MQ features AVX2 and FMA3 instructions, that appeared in modern CPUs not too far ago. Even though these extensions are not extensively supported by applications yet, this should improve in future apps.
i7-3630QM vs i7-4700MQ specifications comparison
The graphs below demonstrate the difference between i7-4700MQ and i7-3630QM 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 displays the number of cores (darker area). Lighter area on the graph represents the number of extra threads, offered by Hyper-Threading technology. The "Operating frequency" chart uses dark color to represent base frequency, whereas 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.
