Intel Core i7-7500U review: specs and price

In nearly every category, the Intel Core i7-7500U ranks higher than average. This means that you can count on a higher than average RAM speed, CPU temperature, and smaller semiconductors to allow for improved performance and reduced power consumption.

The processor also features two CPU cores clocked at 2.7 to 3.5 GHz and integrates HyperThreading to allow users to work with up to four threads at once (if the device supports it). You can also count on dynamic frequency scaling and the inclusion of Intel HD 620 integrated graphics.

General info

1.Has integrated graphics
Intel Core i7-7500U
With integrated graphics you don’t need to buy a separate graphics card.
2.Supports 64-bit
Intel Core i7-7500U
A 32-bit operating system can only support up to 4GB of RAM. 64-bit allows more than 4GB, giving increased performance. It also allows you to run 64-bit apps.
3.GPU clock speed

300MHz

The graphics processing unit (GPU) has a higher clock speed.
4.semiconductor size

14nm

Small semiconductors provide better performance and reduced power consumption. Chipsets with a higher number of transistors, semiconductor components of electronic devices, offer more computational power. A small form factor allows more transistors to fit on a chip, therefore increasing its performance.
5.DirectX version

12

DirectX is used in games, with newer versions supporting better graphics.
6.OpenCL version

2

Some apps use OpenCL to apply the power of the graphics processing unit (GPU) for non-graphical computing. Newer versions introduce more functionality and better performance.

Performance

1.CPU speed

2 x 2.7GHz

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
2.CPU threads

4

More threads result in faster performance and better multitasking.
3.turbo clock speed

3.5GHz

When the CPU is running below its limitations, it can boost to a higher clock speed in order to give increased performance.
4.L2 cache

0.5MB

A larger L2 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
5.clock multiplier

27

The clock multiplier controls the speed of the CPU.
6.L1 cache

128KB

A larger L1 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.

Memory

1.RAM speed

2133MHz

It can support faster memory, which will give quicker system performance.
2.maximum memory bandwidth

34.1GB/s

This is the maximum rate that data can be read from or stored into memory.
3.memory channels

2

More memory channels increases the speed of data transfer between the memory and the CPU.
4.maximum memory size

32GB

The maximum amount of memory (RAM) supported.
5.bus transfer rate

4GT/s

The bus is responsible for transferring data between different components of a computer or device.

Features

1.Has dynamic frequency scaling
Intel Core i7-7500U
Dynamic frequency scaling is a technology that allows the processor to conserve power and reduce noise when it is under a light load.
2.Has NX bit
Intel Core i7-7500U
NX bit helps protect the computer from malicious attacks.
3.Supports hardware-assisted virtualization
Intel Core i7-7500U
It is easier to obtain better performance when using virtualization if it is hardware-assisted.
4.Has AES
Intel Core i7-7500U
AES is used to speed up encryption and decryption.
5.Has MMX
Intel Core i7-7500U
MMX is used to speed up tasks such as adjusting the contrast of an image or adjusting volume.
6.Has AVX
Intel Core i7-7500U
AVX is used to help speed up calculations in multimedia, scientific and financial apps, as well as improving Linux RAID software performance.

Miscellaneous

1.height

42mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
2.width

24mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
