With little time to spare, we ran a few Web-based tests on AMD's prototype laptop.
While the scores overwhelmingly favor Intel's Core i7-4702MQ and its efficient CPU architecture, I will go on-record saying that any user sitting in front of either system and browsing the Internet wouldn't notice a difference between them. Where Intel would no doubt pull ahead, indisputably, would be in the threaded tasks we typically run in a CPU review. Those tests require more time, and I'd want a shipping product to look at from AMD, too. Neither of those luxuries were afforded this time around, unfortunately.
