According to 3D Mark Physics , i7 4500U is faster than i5 3230M .Since the dedicated video card is same , the second should be faster

But if you pick the first from HP , dont worry ,i5 3230M is an awesome laptop processor

@whitecat does extra .8ghz frequency effect overall gaming performance I'm not looking forward for any type of battery time I just want to do gaming

You mean 0.8GHz difference between the base speeds . The frequency of processor is not the only thing .The amount , speed and latency of processor cache also matter .i7 4500U has 4MB L3 cache vs 3MB cache of i5 3230M. Here the number of cores and threads are the same. Trust the benchmarks .

But if you fear that the benchmark has flaws or typo , get i5 3230M it is a good laptop processor . Yet, the dedicated gpu is the same.

@whitecat according to that benchmark core i5 is better ranked 341 vs 344 ( lower is better)

The reason the i5 would be ranked better is simply because it's a quad core performance CPU, whereas the newer i7 is ultra-low voltage- less heat, less power consumption, longer battery life, dual core. Games make use of up to four cores, but that's mainly big 3D games like battlefield. Simpler games max out at two cores. Really, with such low performance differences, I'd go the i7 if i wanted battery life and the i5 for performance.

i7 4500U 3957 points
i5 3230M -3988 points
difference =0.78% - it is negligible small
