Average Bench: 42.4% (357th of 959)

Based on 8,602 user benchmarks.  Devices: BFEBFBFF000206A7, , BFEBFBFF000206A6 Model: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2630QM CPU @ 2.00GHz

The Intel Core i7-2630QM is a Sandy Bridge (2011) mobile CPU. Although the 2630QM has a base clock of just 2.0 GHz it's able to boost this to a maximum of 2.9 GHz when under load. The ability to boost allows the 2630QM to keeps its power draw to a minimum whilst the CPU is idle. The 2630QM follows the typical i7 pattern of four physical cores and eight hyperthreads and this model has a modest TDP of just 45 Watts. This configuration allows the 2630QM to deal equally well with both single and multi-core workloads. The overall effective speed for the 2630QM is 61.7 which is 55% below the current group leaders but still sufficient for general computing tasks such as email, browsing and light spreadsheet work. [Oct '14 CPUPro]
