The Intel Core i7-5700HQ is a high-end processor for laptops. It belongs to the 14-nanometer 5th Generation Core “Broadwell” series for 2015, which replaced 22nm 4th Gen Core “Haswell”. The i7-5700HQ can be found in select gaming notebooks, but it is also designed for use in other high-performance consumer laptops and professional-class mobile workstations.
Intel Core i7-5700HQ Benchmark
The i7-5700HQ replaced the i7-4720HQ released earlier this year. The Broadwell part delivers somewhat better results in PassMark CPU benchmark. What’s missing are tests of its Intel HD 5600 integrated graphics, which replaced the HD 4600 of “Haswell” chips. The HD 5600 is expected to deliver noticeable performance boost over its precursor. This isn’t especially important, since laptops with the quad-core i7 CPUs usually have much faster dedicated video cards for graphics computing purposes. Another important aspect is power consumption. The i7-5700HQ has a Thermal Design Power of 47 Watts just like the i7-4xxxHQ series. But, the newer version introduces Configurable TDP-down frequency (600MHz) which reduces power consumption to 37-Watts and also degrades performance.
What’s also new in the i7 is support for 1866MHz memory, up from previous maximal 1600MHz.
