Chinese forum Benyouhui.it168 has posted some initial benchmarks of Intel’s upcoming flagship mobile processor, the 22 nm quad-core Core i7-4930MX.
The CPU features a base clock of 3.0 GHz, a boost clock of 3.7 GHz, an 8 MB L3 Cache, 57 W TDP and supports DDR3 and DDR3-L memory clocked at up to 1600 MHz. The i7-4930MX also includes the Intel HD 4600 iGP which features a 400 MHz core clock, 1350 MHz memory clock, 20 execution units with two ROPs, four TMUs and a 128-bit DDR3 memory interface.
In addition to evidently allowing games such as Battlefield 3, Need for Speed: Most Wanted (2012) to be playable at 1366 x 768, the i7-4930MX also scored the following in AIDA 64 and Futuremark’s 3DMark 11:
AIDA 64 Extreme Edition
- CPU AES - 16,492 MB/s
- CPU ZLiB - 309.1 MB/s
- CPU Hash - 3014 MB/s
- CPU PhotoWorxx - 14,315 Mpixel/s
- Performance Preset: P1418
- Extreme Preset: X374
It’s worth noting that Intel’s upcoming “Iris Pro” graphics seems set to provide even more processing power that certainly has the potential to allow systems to offer respectable gaming performance without needing a discrete graphics card.
