What is the equivalent of an i5-2500k on a laptop?
Jul 4, 2012, 4:49 PM
If i wanted to buy a cpu for a laptop equivalent to an i5-2500k on desktop which would be best?
Ive tried i7-2670qm + i7-2630qm but i cant find the parts for sale anywhere.. wherever i look it just comes up with laptops with those CPUs included.
Also.... I need the processors to be supported with the HM55 chipset.

There isn't anything really. I doubt even the most high end i7 laptop can keep up with an (overclocked) 2500K.

Hmm i guess then i5-2500 would be a better option to compare it to ( non-overclocked )
