Average Bench: 59% (205th of 1052)

Based on 15,460 user benchmarks.  Device: BFEBFBFF000306C3 Model: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4700HQ CPU @ 2.40GHz

The Intel Core i7-4700HQ is a fourth generation top-end mobile Haswell CPU. With a base clock of 2.4 GHz and a maximum turbo clock of 3.4 GHz. The 4700HQ has a maximum TDP of 47 Watts and is equipped with 4 cores and 8 threads so it's equally at ease with both single-core and multi-core workloads. Thanks to the 4700HQs relatively high turbo clock speed and its relatively new architecture it achieved an effective speed of 83.3 which is staggering for a mobile processor and actually only 15% below the average of the top nine group leaders which include both desktop and server CPUs. This mobile CPU will give older workstations a run for their money. [Oct '14 CPUPro]

Slow and expensive.

(i7 - 4710HQ) Good performance up to 3.5 GHz and minimum reach 0.8 GHz for power saving. Not bad for mobile usage... On battery, I always setup limit to 1.5 GHz and it still run smoothly for 2 hours battery live.. —Jan '16

low perfomance for that price

Good at multitasking, but easily spikes instead of gradually increasing clock speeds when in use.
