Intel Core i7-4500U vs i7-4800MQ

Mini Review

Intel Core i7-4500U advantages

  • The i7-4500U includes F16C instructions, that appeared in modern CPUs not too far ago. These extensions are not widely used by programs yet, but their support should improve in future apps.
  • The Intel i7-4500U is 68% more energy efficient.

Intel Core i7-4800MQ advantages

  • The Intel Core i7-4800MQ incorporates more processing cores than the Intel i7-4500U processor. Large number of cores helps this microprocessor to tackle multiple threads or tasks at once.
  • Operating frequency of the Intel i7-4800MQ processor is higher than the frequency of the i7-4500U microprocessor, as a result the Intel Core i7-4800MQ can run most applications faster.
  • The CPU fits into Socket G3. The microprocessor can be effortlessly removed from the socket for upgrade or replacement.

i7-4500U vs i7-4800MQ specifications comparison

The charts below show the difference between i7-4800MQ and i7-4500U most important features. These characteristics, together with 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, offered 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.
