Intel Core i7-3720QM: Mobile Ivy Bridge Review

14 June 2012
  • Summary: When we tested the Core i7-3770K in April, we found it to be 10-17% faster than the Sandy Bridge Core i7-2600K while consuming over 10% less power. In essence, this makes Ivy Bridge a more refined version of Sandy Bridge. Intel's only weakness was in its HD graphics engine, with the HD 4000 still being much slower than AMD's A8 series APUs. This remains true of Ivy Bridge's mobile parts.

Intel Core i7-3720QM Ivy Bridge Mobile Review

23 April 2012
  • Conclusion: The Intel Core i7-3720QM is easily the fastest notebook processor we've tested to date. In standard compute workloads like Cinebench and LAME MT, the new Ivy Bridge Core i7 offered performance gains of 12 - 20% over Intel's previous generation Sandy Bridge processors, though it's hard to make direct clock-for-clock comparisons, since Intel Turbo Boost speeds vary significantly between the two architectures.
  • Pros: ~ 20% faster CPU performance, 2X faster graphics performance, 2X faster Quick Sync transcoding, Lower power, Higher Turbo Boost speeds
  • Cons: Pricey high-end quad core models

Intel Core i7-3720QM - Ivy Bridge For Mobile Review: Monster Kill!

PC Perspective
23 April 2012
  • Excerpt: It would be an understatement to say that Intel’s had a good streak as of, say, the last five years. If life was commented on by the announcer from Unreal Tournament, Intel’s product releases would now be followed by the scream of “ M-M-M-MONSTER KILLLLLLLL! ” This is particularly true in the mobile market. Atom aside, Intel’s processors have repeatedly defeated AMD and its own preceding products.

Intel Core i7-3720QM Review; Ivy Bridge Goes Mobile

Hardware Canucks
22 April 2012
  • Conclusion: Initial Impressions After Sandy Bridge set the bar for mobile processors, this latest generation had quite a bit to live up to. From a feature perspective, Ivy Bridge doesn’t really bring anything new to the table, nor is it a quantum leap forward in terms of performance. What has happened is the next logical step towards increased real world performance and a closer relationship between the CPU and onboard graphics controller without a corresponding spike in power...

Test: Intel Core i7-3720QM - Ivy Bridge goes mobile

23 April 2012
  • Summary: Nach langem Warten und mehreren Verschiebungen sind sie nun endlich da, die ersten Ivy-Bridge-Prozessoren für Notebooks. Bislang kann man allerdings nur von einer Vorhut sprechen, denn auf die Dualcore-Prozessoren und die für Ultrabooks so wichtigen Low-Voltage-CPUs, die künftig Ultra-CPUs genannt werden, müssen wir noch etwas warten. Intel kann die CPU-Leistung steigern, da die neuen CPUs etwas höher getaktet werden und die GPU merklich verschnellern.
  • Pros: Hervorragendes Performance/Watt-Verhältnis, HD4000 lässt kleine dedizierte GPUs teils überflüssig werden, Hohe CPU-Leistung, USB 3.0 im Chipsatz integriert
  • Cons: Kein Thunderbolt  im Chipsatz integriert
