Been using one for five years now. Great processor for my laptop and highly capable. Paired with an SSD it is blazing fast (fro it's time) transcoding.

The Intel Core i7-4710HQ is a fourth generation top-end mobile Haswell CPU. With a base clock of 2.5 GHz and a maximum turbo clock of 3.5 GHz which is 0.1 GHZ higher than last year's 4700HQ. The 4710HQ 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 4710HQs relatively high turbo clock speed and its relatively new architecture it achieved an effective speed of 86.1 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 at the time. Even today, its 8 threads can handle video editing and gaming if properly cooled. The i7-4710HQ performs slightly better than the i3-9100 in multi-threaded workload but falls behind in single threaded workload
