  • Quad core
8.1 Out of 10

The Intel Core i7-3630QM is a quad core processor, based on the Ivy Bridge architecture, for laptops. It’s a rather fast processor and due to Hyperthreading it’s capable of handling up to eight threads simultaneously, which leads to excellent performance. The speed of the processors is 2.4GHz, but through overclocking with Turbo Boost, they are capable of reaching a speed of up to 3.2GHz. The 3630QM in particular offers a slightly better performance than other Sandy Bridge models because of some architectural improvements. The CPU also comes with an integrated graphics card from the Intel HD Graphics 4000, which is a respectably fast card.
