Intel Core i7-3610QM

The Intel Core i7-3610QM is the Ivy Bridge (Third Generation) quad-core processor for laptop PC. It supports Hyper-Threading technology which offers additional processing power. Each core compromises a base clock speed of 2.3 GHz but because of Turbo Boost technology it can overclock automatically up to 3.1 GHz when 4 cores are active, 3.2 GHz when 2 cores are active and 3.3 GHz when only 1 core is active.
One good development in this Ivy Bridge processor is the reduction of die and enhancements on both GPU and CPU performance. The Ivy Bridge CPUs are created using 22 nanometer technology compared to Sandy Bridge’s 32 nanometer. This Ivy Bridge processor also offers integrated PCI Express 3.0 and DDR3 (L)-1600. The Intel Core i7-3610QM also supports all functions of the Ivy Bridge core like VT-x, AES or Trusted Execution excluding VT-d and vPro.

The Intel Core i7-3610QM quad core processor has an integrated graphics controller called Intel HD Graphics 4000 that features 16 Execution Units (EUs) which are clocked at 650 MHz up to 1100 MHz with Turbo Boost, making it faster than the older Intel HD Graphics 3000.

The Intel Core i7-3610QM has a Thermal Design Power (TDP) of about 45 Watts including graphics card and memory controller. It also has Level 1 Cache of 256 KB, Level 2 Cache of 1024 KB, and Level 3 Cache of 6144 KB. The Intel Core i7-3610QM quad core processor has a PassMark Rating of 7488, this is higher compared to Intel Core i7-2670QM’s 6804. So far there are several laptops that are equipped with this Core i7-3610QM processor like Acer Aspire V3-4710G-73618G75M, HP Pavilion dv7-7025dx, Asus G75VW-BBK5, and Samsung NP700G7C-S01US.

Below is a list of processors and their corresponding PassMark Rating, the higher the rating of the processor the better its performance.

krizza said...

Me, too. I'm not a techy person kasi. Bili lang bili. (lol) Anyway, thanks for sharing this info! :)

Unknown said...

of course i want the i7 but might just go with the 13 since i'm not into graphics much...

Mae Codizal said...

I would really love to read more...but honestly, I just wished the article was in layman's terms...sorry :)

Unknown said...

anything will work for me because I am not a game nor a graphics editor

monleg said...

i love this post!!! keep it up.

Mine's not included in the list. Maybe because it's prehistoric! Hahaha!

Thanks for sharing this!

Farida said...

My desktop is equipped with this and it's working quite well... :D


Very useful technical info lucidly presented for laymen.

Dani said...

wow i7 already? Good to know!

kath said...

at dahil dito napa-check ako kung ano processor mg laptop ko :D

Unknown said...

I have no idea what my computer has, I just want it to work when I turn it on!

When I buy laptops, I don't really care much for the type of processor it has. I mostly focus on the RAM & Hard drive capacity.

And my laptop's processor isn't on the list XD it's probably an old model by now. I got this laptop more than 2 yrs ago. :/

verabear said...

Phew. You got me drowning with all this techie talk :) Good thing I have a boyfriend who would understand these things more. :)

Toto said...

Having an Intel Core i7 would be really great especially for those who loves gaming and those who are into graphics.

Daddy Yashiro said...

i7, that's really fast.

Genefaith said...

this is a nice resource for my techy bro...

Sumi Go said...

Now you got me checking on what I have! hahaha.. :D

bonz said...
