The i7-7700HQ is a very popular mobile CPU, and it runs at 2.8GHz base with a 3.8Ghz boost clock, but there is a higher-end processor, the 7820HK. The Intel i7-7820HK features a 2.9GHz base with a 3.9GHz boost. However, you can overclock it, or rather, the vendor can set up the overclock. We see that CPU performance is slightly better at stock, as the overclock wasn't applied during these tests.

 

With the overclock applied, performance will jump up a bit, but the system will run with louder fans since temperatures will increase. There are some benchmarks where the stock 7820HK doesn't beat out the 7700HQ in another brands' system, and that could be anything from power tuning to cooling capability.
