Intel Core i7-7920HQ is a high-end processor, part of Intel’s latest generation Kaby Lake. Manufactured by 14nm manufacturing process, it allows slightly higher clock speeds and better efficiency, although the performance per clock hasn’t changed since this is practically the same microarchitecture as the one used for the previous Skylake chips.
The Core i7-7920HQ offers high operating frequency of 3.1 – 4.1 GHz (for four active cores the Turbo Boost frequency drops to 3.7 GHz or 3.9 GHz for two active cores). The CPU features Hyper-Threading, (4/8 core/thread design), 8MB L3 cache (256KB L1 and 1024KB L2 cache), a dual-channel DDR4-2400 or DDR3L-2133/1600 memory controller and a TDP of 45W including the iGPU. Speaking of which, the processor integrates an Intel HD Graphics 630 chip clocked at 350 – 1100 MHz.
The most noticeable feature of this processor is the unlocked multiplier for easy overclocking and usually OEMs provide the needed software for doing so. In the end, the processor’s maximum frequency can be increased depending on the notebook’s cooling system.
