Here I have listed the 5 best processor for laptop 2017 that includes Intel Core i7 and i5 processors. It is the main performance feature of any laptop. A person searching for a new laptop, first of all checks the processor of laptop and then decides whether to buy or not. The performance of a processor can be known by checking its various features like frequency, memory size and support, graphics support and a lot more. In addition to that, the laptop processor performance can also be measured with various tools like Cinebench R15, Geekbench, 3D mark, X264 HD benchmark and more. These tools generates the processor score as per performance, higher the score, better is the processor performance.
Best Laptop Processor Comparison
The 3DMark score of processors is as shown in below graph. 3DMark is a tool that measures the performance of processor through its score. Higher score means better performance. So, it is clear from the below graph that performance of i7-7820HK is better than the other four processors.
Cinebench R15 is also a tool like 3DMark used for measuring the processor performance. The graph of Cinebench R15 vs processors is as below. If we compare i5-7300HQ and i7-7500U, we can say that performance of i5 quad-core is better than i7 dual-core.
The graph showing the performance of processors as per Geekbench is as shown below. Analysis of the graph says that there is slight difference in the performance score of i7-7820HK and i7-7700HQ. From that we can conclude that, there is not a much performance difference between two quad-core processors.
X264 HD Benchmark
X264 HD Benchmark processor performance score graph is as shown below. The performance score of the i7 quad-core processors is at the top, then comes the i5 quad-core and then the remaining two i7 & i5 dual-core processors. As a conclusion as per X264 HD benchmark, the performance of quad-core processors is better that dual-core processor.
