Intel Core i7-4860HQ is a high-end processor released on January 19, 2014. It is part of the “Haswell” generation and operates at a base frequency of 2.4GHz. If a higher frequency is needed, its four cores can automatically overclock, and if they all operate in tandem, they can reach 3.4GHz. The frequency can go up to 3.5GHz for two cores or 3.6GHz for only one core.
The chip is equipped with 256KB of first level cache, 1MB of second level cache, and 6MB of third level cache. The Core i7-4860HQ has been developed using a 22nm process, allowing for the integration of the Intel Iris Pro Graphics 5200 controller. It operates at a base frequency of 200MHz, while Turbo Boost can increase that to 1200MHz. Power consumption of the whole SoC (System on a Chip) amounts to 47 watts with a maximum operating temperature of 100C.
Intel Core i7-4860HQ supports TurboBoost (increasing the clock frequency when necessary), HyperThreading (additional virtual core for every physical one), PCI Express 3.0, DDR3L 1333/1600 memory, AVX, AVX2,FMA, Quick Sync and the SSE4 instruction set.
