Intel Core i7-2675QM quad core processor

The Intel Core i7-2675QM is a quad core processor for notebook computers and the inheritor of the prevalent Core i7-2630QM. The Intel Core i7-2675QM quad core processor is based on the Sandy Bridge architecture and offers HyperThreading technology in order to handle 8 threads at once thus speeding the processing by up to 20%. The Intel Core i7-2675QM offers higher base and turbo frequencies by 200MHz compared to the older Core i7-2630QM.

The Intel Core i7-2675QM quad core processor has an integrated graphics controller called Intel HD Graphics 3000 which is capable of rendering movies and playing low resolution games with ease. This integrated graphic card is fabricated also using the 32nm technology and shares the level 3 cache with the CPU cores. The integrated graphics controller in the core i7-2635QM is clocked from 650 to 1300MHz because of the TurboBoost.

Additionally, an enhanced dual-channel DDR3 memory controller is also incorporated on the CPU die which is used by the CPU and GPU part. This processor also offers Level 1 Cache of 256 KB, Level 2 Cache of 1024 KB, Level 3 Cache of 6144 KB. This Intel Core i7-2675QM quad core processor has Thermal Design Power of 45 Watt and a PassMark rating of 6128 points.

The table below shows the performance of Intel Core i7-2675QM quad core processor compared to other processors. The higher the PassMark rating the better the performance.
