Intel Core i7-3632QM ; Quad-Core, 6MB L3 Cache

The Intel Core i7-3632QM is another Third Generation Ivy Bridge quad-core processor intended mainly for mobile computers. This quad-core processor chip is manufactured using the 22 nanometer technology and comes packed with several important features such as DDR3-1600 Memory Controller; Intel HD Graphics 4000 runs at the clock speed of 650-1000MHz; Hyper-Threading technology; AVX; Quick Sync; Virtualization VT-x; and more. This processor also supports Hyper-Threading technology which can handle up to eight threads which make the processor more efficient. This Intel Core i7-3632QM has a base clock speed of 2.4 GHz without Turbo Boost up to 2.9 GHz when all of the cores are active, 3.1 GHz when only 2 of the cores are active and 3.2 GHz when only 1 of the cores is active.

Like its forerunner, Sandy Bridge, the Intel Core i7-3632QM has a level 3 cache of 6 MB. The difference between the Ivy Bridge and the Sandy Bridge processors is that the Ivy Bridge processors use 22 nanometer technology compared to Sandy Bridges’ 32 nanometer; and improvements on the GPU and CPU performance.

The Ivy Bridge processor family is the first one to equip 3D transistors which has the benefit of increasing energy efficiency in comparison to similarly clocked Sandy Bridge processors. The Intel Core i7-3632QM quad-core processor comes with Intel HD Graphics 4000 equipped with 16 Execution Units.

This Intel Core i7-3632QM quad-core mobile processor has a Thermal design Power (TDP) of 35 watts which makes this laptop processor suited to laptop PCs with size ranging from 14 inches and above.

Furthermore, this Intel Core i7-3632QM quad-core processor has a PassMark score of 7259 which makes it more powerful than AMD E2-1200 with a rating of 725; Intel Core i5-3210M with a score of 3896; Intel Core i3-3217U with a score of 2178; Intel Pentium B980 with a rating of 2301 and AMD E2-1800 with a PassMArk of 812. On the other hand this Intel Core i7-3632QM is as powerful as the Intel Core i7-3630QM with a score of 7534. For more comparison you visit this page.
