Intel Core i7-2637M

10 Reasons why Intel Core i7-2637M is better

than the average

1.Sizably lower TDP
17Wvs 67W (the average)
vs 3W (best: Intel Atom Z670)
The thermal design power (TDP) is the maximum amount of power the cooling system needs to dissipate. A lower TDP typically means that it consumes less power.
2.Uses hyperthreading technology
Yesvs No (59% don't have it)
Many of Intel's processors use hyperthreading, which means that each core of the processor can work on two threads at once instead of most processors which work on a single thread per core. This means you can have significant performance gains in certain applications.
3.Clearly more L3 cache per core
2MB/corevs 2MB/core (the average)
vs 15MB/core (best: Intel Xeon E7-8893 v4)
More data can be stored in the L3 cache for access by each core of the CPU.
4.Clearly more performance per watt
276vs 132 (the average)
vs 396.87 (best: Intel Core i7-4720HQ)
This means the CPU is more efficient, giving a greater amount of performance for each watt of power used.
5.Has Intel Quick Sync Video
Yesvs No (71% don't have it)
This allows very fast video transcoding times, for example when ripping a DVD or Blu-ray to your computer.
6.Noticeably higher maximum operating temperature
100°Cvs 88°C (the average)
vs 105°C (best: Intel Core i7-3940XM)
If the CPU exceeds the maximum operating temperature then problems such as random resets can occur.
24mmvs 37mm (the average)
vs 6mm (best: Apple A5 APL7498)
8.Distinctly faster GPU turbo speed
1200MHzvs 1050MHz (the average)
vs 1350MHz (best: Intel Core i7-3940XM)
When the GPU is running below its limitations, it can boost to a higher clock speed in order to give increased performance.
9.Somewhat higher SSE version
4.2vs 4.1 (the average)
vs 4.2 (best: Intel Core i7-4770K)
SSE is used to speed up multimedia tasks such as editing an image or adjusting audio volume. Each new version contains new instructions and improvements.
31mmvs 36mm (the average)
vs 6mm (best: Apple A5 APL7498)
