VR Experience Performance Boost Up to 25% with same GTX 1070VR was the hottest and boost topics on content development or gaming experience in 2016, so the VR benchmark is an important index to show how good is the VR performance of a gaming laptop is, the FPS rate is the most important thing, because when I use VR gears like HTC VIVE or Oculus Rift, I need to make sure that each eye’s glass could have stable performance to keep over 90FPS, otherwise I will feel dizzy very soon.
The 7700HQ and GTX1070 on VRMark test is 7996 score, that brings more than 12.6% faster VR score than 6700HQ and GTX 1070 graphics at 7100 score.
CPU arithmetic and OpenGL test is 10% fasterMost usage of the CPU performance is about arithmetic, like data calculation, simulation, image design processing, video transcoding, and 3D rendering, the 7th Gen Core i7 7700HQ also improve around 10% faster on this type of calculation, When I test CineBench R15, the CPU benchmark score is 735~739cb score, if runs on Core i7 6700HQ, the score is 674cb, so i7 7700HQ is around 10% faster than 6700HQ on the arithmetic and 3D rendering usage performance enhancement.
The Core i7 7700HQ got 735cb score on CineBench R15 test.
The Core i7 6700HQ got 674cb score on CineBench R15 test.
Core i7 7700HQ of Video Transcoding Test Up to 11% FasterThe FHD and 4K video transcoding getting more popular in recent years, so I also looking forward to see what Core i7 7700HQ could improve on this part. I used “X264 FHD Benchmark” tool to test the performance gap between Core i7 7700HQ and 6700HQ.
Intel® Core i7 7700HQ got 25.2fps on X264 FHD Benchmark test.
Intel® Core i7 6700HQ got 22.70fps on X264 FHD Benchmark test.
Conclusion on the 7th Gen Core i7 Performance ImprovementWith these 3 simple but useful benchmark tests, we could realized that the latest Intel® 7th Gen Core i7 platform are capable to improve most of the software and usage around 10% between 7700HQ and 6700HQ, if I use 7820HK OC to 4GHz, the performance boost rocks to 21%~25% higher than 6700HQ, It’s really worth to buy the latest Core i7 platform for your 1st gaming laptops or refresh your platform over 2 years, and if you got enough budget, 7820HK with GTX 1070 graphics will be my first choice on GT73VR model, and GS series or GE series with 7700HQ and GTX 1060 will also be great choice if you like slim or with ODD for different usages.
