Pros: Huge Upgrade improvement over 2670QM, on par with my desktop FX8350 in terms of performance. The extra cache 8MB and the blazing fast speeds. This CPU has definitely improved my FPS in BF3 for those 64 player servers on ultra settings.
It is worth the money to invest in a fast CPU for a laptop. My X9100 (2008) is almost on par with the newly released Trinity 2.5Ghz (2013). The CPU temperature is actually cooler than the old one it replaced it has never reached above 68C.
Other Thoughts: I didn't go the extreme route because my laptop has a max TDP of 45Watts. I've learned never to exceed the manufacturer recommendations. Sometimes the cooling system cannot compensate for the higher temperature and undervolting/underclocking is needed. Thank you for reading my review.
