Based on 29,862 user benchmarks.  Devices: BFEBFBFF000306A9, , BFEBFBFF000306A8 Model: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3610QM CPU @ 2.30GHz

The Intel Core i7-3610QM is a third generation Ivy Bridge mobile CPU. Sporting base/turbo clocks of 2.3/3.3 GHz, four physical cores and eight hyper-threaded cores. This configuration has a TDP of just 45 Watts and offers similar overall performance for both single-core and multi-core workloads alike. Comparing the 3610QM to the ten highest voted CPUs shows that the 3610QM lags in terms of effective speed by just 27%, not bad result considering that the group consists of both server and desktop CPUs. Despite having a relatively low effective speed the 3610QM can still handle general computing tasks such as web surfing, email and word-processing with ease. [Oct '14 CPUPro]

It is still capable to run most of games. If has good thermal construction (not overheating over 70°C) It can run at turbo speed 100mhz x32 = 3.2GHz (max is 3.3Ghz) all time. HWiNFO64 info software sometimes thinks this CPU is 3840QM
