Please remove "3D Mark 11 (Physics)" scores. 4820 vs 1870 is very misleading. 3D Mark scores graphics performance, calculated using the CPU as a reference processor. Depending on which graphics card the test used changes everything. The samples uploaded with i7-3537u must have had better discrete graphics processors in general. When the same integrated Intel HD 4000 is used, both i7-3537u and i5-3337u scores around 1200. This site is only comparing the CPU, you are providing false inaccurate information.
