Average Bench: 66.1% (121st of 953)

Based on 734 user benchmarks.  Device: BFEBFBFF000306C3 Model: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4900MQ CPU @ 2.80GHz

The i7-4900MQ is a top end 2013 Haswell Laptop CPU. It sports Intel's standard i7 configuration of four physical cores with support for eight hyper-threads. Comparing the 4990MQ and the flagship desktop i7-4770 shows that the performance gap between Desktop and Laptop CPUs no longer exists amongst top end Haswell based CPUs. Looking at the 4900MQ and the 3630QM Ivy Bridge Laptop CPU shows that the 4900MQ is around 30% faster, which is a big jump considering the relatively narrow age gap between the two. Overall the 4900MQ is a superb Laptop CPU that is able to give even the latest top of the range Desktop CPUs a run for their money. [Mar '14 CPUPro]
