Intel Core i7 720QM vs Intel Core i5-560M
#1
Hello,

I have two laptops. One laptop has an i7 720QM, 4GB of RAM and ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650. The other has an i5-560M, Intel HD 4000 and 4GB of RAM. Which will be faster in PCSX2 the i7 720QM laptop or the i5-560M laptop? 

I am trying to get full speed with native resolution in Darkwatch. With the i7 720QM laptop I am getting 88-90% speed with aggressive plus speed hacks and I’m getting 2.4-2.8ghz on two cores in CPU Z with hyperthreading and mvtu enabled. I haven’t tried the i5-560M laptop yet. Based on the specs of each CPU which will be faster? Will the i5 reliably stay at 3.2ghz?

the i5 will perform better since its STR is around 1200 while the i7's STR is around 900.
Either way, both are weak for pcsx2 in general
CPU : I7 2600K Oc'ed @ 4.2Ghz

The i5 should be able to achieve a mostly stable 100%(though you might need to use speedhacks like the i7). If you're using PCSX2 v1.4.0, you should upgrade to the latest PCSX2 v1.5.0 development build. It should help with performance.
