We'Ll run some benchmarks to see how they perform and discuss the differences between them to help you find out which one you should get it's important. To note that the 6700 HQ is typically a mobile chip, the use in laptops, while the 6700 K has traditionally been an unlocked desktop chip. However, was that says there are laptops available with the 6700 K, so I think it's useful to understand the differences in performance and features between them when buying a laptop. You might be tempted to think that they're similar based purely on their names, so let's find out. First, let's notice of similarities between these two chips. Folks have four CPU cores with eight threads. They use a 14 nanometer manufacturing process. They have support for up to 64 gigabytes of memory with two memory channels and 16 PCI Express Lanes. Growth also have the same Intel. Hd graphics, 530 chip and were released in the same period q3 of 2015 that's, where the majority the similarities end. So how do they dissolve the main differences in the clock? Speed when the 6700 HQ has a base clock of 2.6 gigahertz and can tell both to 3.5 gigahertz, while the 6700 K has a base clock of 4 gigahertz and contempo up to 4.2 gigahertz. Not only does that the 6700 K is unlocked and can be overclocked to proven higher levels of performance. Of course, this depends greatly on adequate cooling solution, especially if used in a laptop, rather than a desktop where cooler space is more scarce.

The K CPU also has 8 megabytes of cache, while the HQ has 6 megabytes. The K has a TDP of 91 watts, while the HQs is 45 watts and I'll mention now that I has no thermal throttling during any of my testing HQ CPUs are typically sold. It onto the board and can't be changed without full motherboard replacement. They are too great for future expansion. The turbo grease also works a bit differently between the two with the mobile chip. Not boosting is higher when more culture in use at once, that's all well and good, but how do they actually perform in these tests? We'Re, not overclocking. The 6700 K so keep in mind that if you did get one, you could push further incentive bench. The cpu score that the 6700 HQ was 691, while the 6700 K received 836 a fairly respectable increase, but nothing too crazy in the past mark CPU benchmark. The 6700 HQ got a cpu score of eight thousand nine hundred and seventy three. While the 6700 K received eleven thousand one hundred and eight again, the nice boost in comparison in Geekbench for the 6700 HQ got four thousand three hundred and thirty. Fourth, the single core performance and thirteen thousand and sixty six for multi core. The 6700 K, on the other hand, got five thousand and eighty one for single core performance and sixteen thousand one hundred and seventy seven for multi core. These increases to the 6700 K are starting to look fairly consistent.

However, I think the difference in the way the turbo boost works shows here. The multi core test shows the 6700 K as performing around nineteen percent better than the HQ chip. However, in the single core test, the K chip is only performing around fifteen percent that I did a little bit less. The 7 zip benchmark was run for ten passes with a dictionary of 32 megabytes. The 6700 HQ got a co rating of 19121 mips, while the 6700 k got a total rating of twenty four thousand five hundred and forty eight minutes. So again, as expected, 6700 K comes out. On top the compression. I then use handbrake to incur a 500 megabyte mp4 video file that I recorded from 1080p to 720p. The 6700 HQ completed the job at an average speed of 35 frames per second, while the 6700 K completed encoding the same file at forty three point: seven frames per second, so the K was a bit faster for the encoding test, which could definitely be useful. If you render a lot of video so as we expected, the 6700 K performs a fair amount better than the 6700 HQ throughout all of our tests on average. Through all of these tests, the 6700 K performed approximately 18 better at stock clock speeds. To be honest, I actually expected to 6700 K to score quite a bit better in these tests, based on what I've read a line so I'm glad. I ran the comparison to myself as I can now say that the difference isn't anything too crazy, so which of these CPUs.

Should you get personally I've been using a laptop with the 6700 HQ for well over a year now and have any performance issues, as you may know, we've gotten to the point for most games where the CPU is not the bottleneck anymore. So I think pairing the cpu with the good graphics card will still provide you with a great gaming experience. If you can afford to get the 6700 K, then by all means, go for it, however, note that it will run hotter, requiring more cooling, which adds more weight to the laptop and will also drain more power from your battery. Personally, I think the 6700 HQ is a great laptop CPU it's quite powerful and works well, I think I'll be leaving the 6700 K in the desktop. I hope this video has helped. You see the real world performance. Differences between these two CPUs be sure to leave a comment on the video and, let me know which of these two CPUs. You pick for a laptop and also leave a like if you found the information useful thanks for watching and don't forget to subscribe for future tech.
