Summary: I dont think intel intended for this processor to last this long but since it did then i think people should have much more appreciation on the products they make.
Pros: Well its 2015 now and with my laptop (XPS L702x) this processor has held up very well with all the new games, granted this laptop is about 4 maybe 5 years old so i need to keep everything at the lowest game settings to play them but the processor has held up for the entire trip.
Cons: only a few times i have encountered where i had my laptop on my well..... lap.... and my leg was right under the exhaust and the cpu and gpu would get pretty hot but if you make sure you dont cover those then it sets at a average temperature.
Pros: Wow it is amazing, i did not purchase it from newegg, I got it built in my new HP dv7-6c95dx and it is amazing. I thought i would have to OC it to get what i wanted out of it but this is not the case. No matter what i through at it, it takes it all with no problem.
Summary: I bought this because I got a laptop that had a Pentium Dual-Core 2.10GHz Processor with Intel HD 2000 Graphics, and I wanted a boost in my gaming. I also bought 8GB to replace my slower Lenovo RAM. Now my Battlefield 3 and Crysis 2 look amazing!
Pros: 1. Intel HD Graphics 3000 2. Quad-Core 3. Upgradable from 2.2GHz to 3.3GHz 4. GREAT for a Laptop.
Cons: Price. Ouch. Some Computers Might Not Have Step-Boost for 3.3GHz.
Summary: System Specs: Intel Core i7-2720QM @ 2.2 Ghz w/ 3.3 Turbo 8 GB DDR3 1333 NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M 2GB PCIe Video 500 GB 7200 SATA 300 HDD
Pros: Awesome speed. I haven't had the processor very long but what I've used it for hasn't put it over 50% load, even running my most intensive games on their highest settings. I really don't have much in the way of media on it though...
Cons: It feels like runs a little warm, but I haven't actually done a diagnosis so take that at face value.
Summary: System Specs: HP Quad Edition DV6 laptop. (15.6 inch model) Intel 2720QM Sandy Bridge Processor 2.2 GHz (3.3 GHz turbo boost) Idle temps 50-55 C (with laptop cooling pad) Full load temps 80-85 C (with cooling pad) ATI Mobility Radeon HD 6570 (1GB GDDR5) 6 GB DDR3 Ram I took apart my laptop to apply...
Pros: Had this CPU since launch and have been very happy with it. Better than any processor I have used, and easily chomps through my video and photo editing programs. Not all into benchmark programs, but it doesn't hiccup with lots of programs running, or playing games. Systems specs below.
Cons: Runs hot, but this is HP's fault for having a poor designed heat sink and small fan/ intake. Definitely helps running a cooling pad.
Pros: Very nice speed for the price in a mobile processor. This is faster than my AMD 1090t six core in my desktop. 2720qm Passmark CPU Mark = 7388 Compare to 2820qm Passmark CPU Mark = 7544 for $200 more 2920qm Passmark CPU Mark = 8082 for $744 more 2600k Passmark CPU Mark = 9324 for -$85 Desktop 990x...
Cons: I purchased the HP dv6 quad edition, I do not recommend this model. I wish the case felt more solid, disk drive moves when grabbed underneath . Fingerprints show on outside and inside of the computer. Wish it had an aluminum case. Would rather not have numeric keyboard. Needs backlighting.
