lol
hahahhahaha GERZEK!
i have i7 4710MQ and i have 32gb 2400 mhz RAM What does i m saying it is supports up to 2400mhz but it doesn't supports DDR3L it supports DDR3 this two is different.
what is wrong with you?
Is there REALLY a difference in performance? if the tests weren't run enough times to be statistically relevant the asynchronous events the CPU does, such as refresh, write-back, etc., may be responsible for these differences. The differences in memory types and bandwidth reported in the above specs are wrong. The only thing I see is the difference in the max GPU speed which explains the result of the 3D test. So, other than the graphics test, is there really a difference, and if so, what's causing it?
yep. i'm looking at my invoice, "i7 4710mq mobile processor 2.5 ghz 6m smart cache, max turbo freq 3.5 ghz" is exactly what it says, it's a built to spec so parts are charged separate, and then, it says this, and this stuff all came together and works. "gskill 8gb ddr3 1600 MHz sodimm 1.35v x2 pc" so you just told 2 dudes with 4710mq's and 1600 MHz ddr3, very rudely, that they are liars. screw you dude. ihave the stuff. I can play any game made.... I JUST bought this for a grand. I haven't even OPENED my i7 5820k with 16 gb ddr4 and gtx 970. that shit is going to own. but, I bet idiots will say stuff about that, too. they'll say it sucks and blah blah and amd fx 9350 is better even though gtx gets like 9.6 and amd gets like 7.0
it supports 1k6 mhz ram and 25k6 mb/s max bandwidth (http://ark.intel.com/fr/products/78931/Intel-Core-i7-4710MQ-Processor-6M-Cache-up-to-3_50-GHz ;) )
It's not about the CPU, it's about the motherboard who does have to support it.
You'd be wrong, because I have the MQ and 1600mhz RAM
the i7 4710mq doesn't support 1600mhz ram, so the 4710hq is definetively the best
