Performance of i7-840QM Tags: CPUs Performance Intel i7 Processors Last response: October 12, 2010 6:31 AM in CPUs Share nightshurai October 12, 2010 6:09:56 AM 1.) So, the i7 cores are hyper-threaded, does this increase, decrease, or do nothing when it comes to encoding video? 2.) With turbo boost it maxes out to 2.0ghz for each core. So would this processor actually be slower than my q6600 2.4 desktop processor? 3.) Would you notice a significant increase to the i7-940XM has 2.13-3.33GHz vs the i7840QM 1.86-3.2GHz Help appreciated!

If the price difference is significant, I wouldn't bother with the upgrade. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
