Core i7-7567U vs Core i7-4722HQ comparison
In our benchmarks, the Core i7-7567U beats the Core i7-4722HQ in overall performance. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Core i7-4722HQ in all gaming tests too.
When comparing core counts for these CPUs, we notice that the Core i7-4722HQ has significantly more cores with 4 cores compared to the Core i7-7567U that has 2 cores. It also has more threads than the Core i7-7567U. Our comparison shows that the Core i7-7567U has a significantly higher clock speed compared to the Core i7-4722HQ. Also, the Core i7-7567U has a slightly higher turbo speed. A Core i7-7567U CPU outputs less heat than a Core i7-4722HQ CPU because of its slightly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption.
Most CPUs have more threads than cores. This technology, colloquially called hyperthreading, improves performance by splitting a core into multiple virtual ones. This provides more efficient utilisation of a core. Indeed, the Core i7-7567U has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
