Reasons to consider the
Intel Core i7 3630QM

Report a correction
Significantly higher clock speed 2.4 GHz vs 1.3 GHz Around 85% higher clock speed
Significantly more l2 cache 1 MB vs 0.25 MB 4x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
Significantly newer manufacturing process 22 nm vs 32 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
More l3 cache 6 MB vs 1.5 MB 4x more l3 cache; more data can be stored in the l3 cache for quick access later
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.16 GHz vs 1.4 GHz More than 2.2x better overclocked clock speed (Air)
More cores 4 vs 1 3 more cores; run more applications at once
More threads 8 vs 2 6 more threads
Significantly better overclocked clock speed (Water) 2.4 GHz vs 1.4 GHz More than 70% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Newer Sep, 2012 vs Apr, 2012 Release date 6 months later
