CPU Bottleneck Teriminator
This review is from: Intel Core i7-3840QM Ivy Bridge 2.8GHz 8MB L3 Cache Socket G2 45W Quad-Core Mobile Processor Model BX80638I73840QM
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.
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.
