The folks over at PC Pro have managed to get hold of an early sample Core i7-820 QM CPU for next-gen performance notebooks with which they put to the test and see if it's worthy of its Core i7 branding in the mobile market segment.
The i7-820 QM is a 1.73GHz clocked processor during light duties but can ramp up to a very serious 3.06GHz (Turbo Boost) when demand calls for it. Intel promises not only noticably superior performance to the pre-gen quad core mobile processors, but improved dynamic overclocking and efficiency for better battery life as well.
As far as PC Pro's findings go, they have some very very positive results to share with us all. Check out the full review of the speedy mobile chip via the link below.
