Intel Core i7-4702HQ

20 Reasons why Intel Core i7-4702HQ is better

than the average

1.Distinctly higher ram speed
1600MHzvs 1416MHz (the average)
vs 2873MHz (best: Samsung Exynos 7420)
It can support faster memory, which will give quicker system performance.
2.Sizably lower TDP
37Wvs 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.
3.Measurably smaller semiconductor size
22nmvs 28nm (the average)
vs 10nm (best: MediaTek Helio X30)
A smaller size indicates that the process to create the chip is newer.
4.Clearly higher GeekBench result
10464vs 6191 (the average)
vs 22113 (best: Intel Core i7-4960X)
This is a cross-platform benchmark that measures the performance of the CPU. (Source: Primate Labs, 2016)
5.Newer version of DirectX
11.1vs 10.7 (the average)
vs 12 (best: AMD A10-7870K)
DirectX is used in games, with newer versions supporting better graphics.
6.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.
7.Has Tri-Gate transistors
Yesvs No (70% don't have it)
An advanced transistor technology developed by Intel that allows lower power consumption and higher speeds.
8.Appreciably newer version of PCI Express (PCIe)
3vs 3 (the average)
vs 3 (best: Intel Core i7-4770K)
PCI Express (PCIe) is a high speed expansion card standard, that connects the computer to it's peripherals. Newer versions can support more bandwidth and deliver better performance.
9.Considerably newer version of OpenGL
4vs 4 (the average)
vs 4.5 (best: AMD A10-7860K)
OpenGL is used in games, with newer versions supporting better graphics.
10.Slightly newer version of OpenCL
1.2vs 1.2 (the average)
vs 2 (best: Intel Xeon E3-1275 v5)
Some applications use OpenCL to utilise the power of the graphics processing unit (GPU) for non-graphical computing. Newer versions introduce more functionality and better performance.
11.Has FMA3
Yesvs No (80% don't have it)
FMA3 is used to speed up tasks such as adjusting the contrast of an image or adjusting volume.
12.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.
13.Clearly 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.
14.Has RdRand
Yesvs No (75% don't have it)
RdRand is an instruction set used for cryptography.
15.Has F16C
Yesvs No (65% don't have it)
F16C is used to speed up tasks such as adjusting the contrast of an image or adjusting volume.
16.Considerably more displays supported
3vs 3 (the average)
vs 4 (best: AMD A10-5800K)
Using multiple displays you can create a larger work space, making it easier to work across multiple applications.
17.Appreciably more GPU execution units
20vs 15 (the average)
vs 48 (best: Intel Xeon E3-1285 v4)
A graphics processing unit (GPU) with a greater number of execution units can deliver better graphics.
18.Notably faster GPU turbo speed
1150MHzvs 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.
19.A bit 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.
32mmvs 36mm (the average)
vs 6mm (best: Apple A5 APL7498)
