Average Bench: 56.5% (201st of 969)

Based on 15,835 user benchmarks.  Devices: BFEBFBFF000306A9, , 0FABFBFF000306A9 Models: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3630QM CPU @ 2.40GHz, Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3630QM CPU @ 2.40GHz

The Core i7-3630QM has been included in the CPU group test as a reference Mobile CPU. This third generation Ivy Bridge processor has proven hugely successful and powers a significant proportion of today's high end laptops. Compared to desktop processors certain compromises have to be made and that is clear from the benchmarks. In terms of real world horsepower the i7-3630QM is comparable to first generation, and three years older, Core i7 Desktop processors. Where the Mobile processors excel is on energy efficiency and with a TDP of just 45 watts the 3630QM is the least power hungry processor in the group test. [Feb '12 CPUPro]
