Reasons to consider the
Intel Core i7 6822EQ

Report a correction
Significantly newer manufacturing process 14 nm vs 22 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
More l3 cache 8 MB vs 4 MB 2x more l3 cache; more data can be stored in the l3 cache for quick access later
Significantly better performance per watt 8.69 pt/W vs 4.96 pt/W More than 75% better performance per watt
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
More threads 8 vs 4 Twice as many threads
Better PassMark score 6,489 vs 4,130 More than 55% better PassMark score
Better performance per dollar 0.58 pt/$ vs 0.36 pt/$ More than 60% better performance per dollar
Newer Oct, 2015 vs Jun, 2012 Release date over 3 years later
