Intel Core i7 4700MQ 

Released June, 2013
  • 2.4 GHz
  • Quad core

The Intel Core i7 4700MQ is a high-end processor for laptops, based on the Haswell technology, which is the successor of the Ivy Bridge technology, providing improved performance to both the GPU and the CPU, while also improving on the Hyperthreading capabilities of the processor. Its four cores are clocked at 2.4GHz, but they can be overclocked through Turbo Boost to 3.2GHz. Also- new features like AVX2 and FMA have been added, which boost the performance even more. The 4700MQ also includes an integrated Intel HD Graphics 4600, which has been tested to be up to thirty percent faster than the older Intel HD Graphics 4000.

Despite tt1's bad grammar he is indeed correct. This CPU will not limit bf4 which is a mostly GPU intensive game.
You've misspelled "dumbass", dumbass. It was a nice try however...
They do, VMware Workstation works flawlessly on my 4700MQ laptop.
Are you sure? 4980/4800MQ supports VT-d. Checkout i7 4700eq (embedded) it supports vt-d. Having the USB 3.0 hub over vm using vt-d would be awesome. Or offloading a dedicated gpu to windows vm for games under linux.
Thats the gpu dumess, this cpu would be an overkill for bf4 .
Yes, it can. But it depends how you like your graphics/FPS ratio. I can play Battlefield 4 on it, but I have to turn the graphics down to almost nothing to get 60 fps.
MQ don't have Intel® Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O (VT-d)
can this processor still run games well today
Should be fixed up now, thanks Adrian
