Intel Core i7-4500U advantages
- The Intel i7-4500U is 68% more energy efficient.
Intel Core i7-4700MQ advantages
- The i7-4700MQ packs more processing cores than the i7-4500U. Large number of cores helps this processor to tackle multiple tasks or heavily multi-threaded programs.
- Operating frequency of the Intel i7-4700MQ is higher than the frequency of the Core i7-4500U CPU, as a result the Core i7-4700MQ has better performance in most applications.
- The Intel Core i7-4700MQ processor fits into Socket G3. The microprocessor can be easily removed from the socket for upgrade or replacement.
i7-4500U vs i7-4700MQ specifications comparison
The graphs below show the difference between i7-4700MQ and Core i7-4500U most important characteristics. These features, as well as an IPC (instructions per cycle) number, determine how well a processor 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, 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.
