Dears Sirs I copy these from above: between " " "CPUBoss Review Our evaluation of 6500U vs 4720HQ among all CPUs" The result said that 6500U obtain 8,4 "8,4 CPUBoss Score Combination of all six facets" "Winner Intel Core i7 6500U" but the 8,4 score correspond to the 4720HQ 6500U has 8,2 score Is there a mistake or not? Are you considering the low or the high score?
