Best Laptop CPU? 6700HQ vs 6700K vs 7700HQ vs 7820HK vs 7700K
6700 HQ 6700 K. 7700 HQ 78, 20 HK and 7700 K CPUs it's important to note that each of these is in a different laptop, so the cooling solutions will differ slightly, which could ultimately affect performance. Additionally, we're not looking at any gaming benchmarks here, as the laptops all have different graphics cards, so it's not possible to get a consistent result. Due to this will only be looking at fewer CPU power throughout a number of different CPU based benchmarks to get an idea of how these CPUs compare against each other and find out what the difference in performance between them is. It'S. Also worth noting that AMD resin based laptops are just around the corner and will change things up in this area, so make sure that you're subscribed for when I take a look at comparing different rows and CPUs let's. Take a quick look at the important aspects associated with each of the five CPUs, all fiber quad core CPUs, with eight threads and to a desktop CPUs, while the other three are mobile chips. The two desktop CPUs have an extra two megabytes of cache and a higher TDP of 91 watts and, of course, the three CPUs ending with the letter K can be overclocked. We can see that the main difference between the skylake and kb wake cpus is that the newer ones are clocked slightly higher. So let's see what that means in terms of performance. By taking a look at our benchmarks, we'll start off with Cinebench.
We can see that the 7700 k is coming out ahead, as should be expected as the most powerful CPU in our test. With the 6700 K. Are they slightly behind, while these are both traditionally desktop CPUs? There are lots of us with them available. The 7820 HK came in at third place, followed closely by the 7700 HQ with the 6700 HQ in last place. Next, in the pause mark, benchmark will be looking purely at the CPU scores of each shift, rather than overall system score. The results start to get a little interesting here, as the 6700 K is now ahead of the pack, with the 7700 K close behind its second place. Interestingly, the 7820 HK mobile chip is not that far behind the 77. I am is test it's, also interesting, that the 6700 HQ came out ahead of the us 7700 HQ. So this test appears to be favoring. The skylake cpus for some reason, which makes me think that perhaps it's, somehow not correctly optimized for the newer kb wake chips. I'M, not exactly sure, as I don't know what it's doing under the hood, but the results are interesting. Nonetheless, in Geekbench 4 we can see the results of single core performance which tends to favor the newer CPUs with a higher clock rate. The results aren't too surprising and match what we saw in to the bench. With the 7700 K coming out ahead, followed by the 6700 K, 7820 HK, 7700 h, cubed, then 6700 HQ things get a little more interesting in the multi core results.
The Geekbench for multi core test uses all CPU cores at once, rather than just a single core. As per the lost test, all five of these chips are quad core cpus, however, it's worth keeping in mind that the turbo boost works different in mobile chips when compared to the desktop chips with the mobile CPUs, they don't boost up as high when more cores are In use during multi core workloads – and we can see they're shown here in the results – the desktop CPUs are pulled further ahead of the HQ CPUs when compared with the single core results shown previously, which I suspect is due to this difference in how turbo boost works. It'S also worth noting that the older 6700 HQ beat the 7700 HQ again, just like in Pathmark and again I'm, not exactly sure why this is the case, as I don't know what the benchmark tool is doing behind the scenes. I ran these tests multiple times and always got the same results now on to video encoding with handbrake in this test, I'm converting a 500 megabyte mp4 1080p video that I recorded to 720p again. The 7700 K and 6700 K desktop CPUs are out in front by quite a bit with a 78 20 HK and 7700 H skew a little further behind with the 6700 page skew taking the longest amount of time to complete the process. Finally, in the 7 zip benchmark, we can see how well each CPU does at compressing and decompressing data.
As expected, the higher club CPUs the coming out on top. However, the 7700 K was only just slightly ahead of the 6700 K this time around. The 7820 HK is further behind, with the 7700 HQ not too far behind nut, and finally, the 6700 HK was only just slightly behind the 7700 HQ, so based on these results, which CPU should you look at getting in your next laptop? To be honest, I've had great all around experiences with all of these CPUs to the point where it wasn't even really noticeable to me day to day they're all fairly high end in terms of a laptop CPU. I still use a 6700 HQ based laptop at work. Every day which came out in the bottom in most of these tests, yet it still provides me with excellent, real world performance, even playing games that traditionally make more use of CPU than graphics still work pretty. Well, you can see my other laptop review videos for more specific gaming benchmarks using the laptops I tested here realistically, I think you're going to have a great experience with any of these CPUs in your laptop. We can see that there isn't actually much increase between the slightly older skylake based CPUs, compared with the KB weak ones, so it's probably still perfectly acceptable to save some money and get the older generation as long as you don't need cable, eight specific features such as Hardware, 4k decoding it's also important to consider battery life in your choice.
While I didn't test battery life here as the battery sizes and the five different laptops very far too much, keep in mind that typically, a faster CPU is going to chew through more power quicker, which may not be ideal in a laptop. Then a results from the kcb use could also be gained if I'd overclocked them. However, from previous testing, the overclock doesn't help that much in these tests, but drains a lot of power. I didn't include overclocking, as I didn't have any results for the 7820 HK. So I thought it was better to leave them out for now. I plan on revisiting overclocking in a future video so which of these CPUs. Are you looking at getting in your next laptop and why be sure to?
