Intel core-i7-2630qm vs core-i7-740qm Benchmark Comparison

March 12th, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments


We had compared the core i7-2630qm from architecture point of view in core-i7-2630qm vs core-i7-740qm comparison. The obvious conclusion was that the newer, Sandy Bridge Core i7-2630qm  ( quad core 2 GHz) is better than the core i7-740qm ( quad core 1.73 GHz). The only question was – by how much.

In the table below, we are presenting some common and quick benchmarks, that should reveal the numbers showing improvement in the performance of the core i7-2630qm with respect to core i7-740qm.

Table : Intel core-i7-2630qm vs core-i7-740qm Benchmark comparison

Benchmark Core i7-2630qm Core i7-740qm
Super Pi 2M ( Lower is better) 30 seconds 34 seconds
Windows 7 Experience Index 7.4 7.1
Pass Mark Score 6476 3579
3D Mark 06 CPU Score 4870 3330

You may like to notice that, while the CPU gain in performance is decent with the core i7-2630qm, the most impressive gain will be in the area of the integrated graphics in the core i7-2630qm. Some that has not been covered in the benchmark results above. If gaming and graphics comparison is your area of interest, you may like to explore is elsewhere.

    The issue is with the chipset ( the chip that connects with the CPU) and not the processor itself. Intel has almost completed the recall and you should not see the issue anymore. The issue with the chipset 6 series is in the SATA controller. According to Intel Intel – “In some cases, the SATA ports performance within the chipsets may degrade over time, potentially impacting the performance or functionality of SATA-linked devices such as hard disk drives and DVD-drives”.

    This happens in rare cases and if you are now buying a notebook based upon the Sandy Bridge processor, it probably has the newer Couger Point – a code name for Chipset 6 Series.
