Great boost to CPU intensive games
This review is from: Intel Core i7-3740QM Ivy Bridge 2.7GHz 6MB L3 Cache 45W Quad-Core Mobile Processor Model BX80638I73740QM
Pros: Boosted all CPU intensive games by up to 20 FPS; games like crysis 3, far cry 3, and gta IV. Did exactly what I wanted it too. Switched it in from a 3210m.
Cons: Very expensive when compared to its desktop counterparts.
Other Thoughts: I upgraded to this processor mainly because of the very apparent bottleneck the 3210m had on the gtx 660m during CPU intensive games. Using MSI Afterburner, I could see that I would have low FPS with only 50ish % usage of the GPU. After upgrading to this processor, my gtx 660m always runs at 98 to 99% usage.
