  • question: mobile i7 cache?

    Currently I am looking at getting an i7-720QM for a laptop. I am curious though, would spending the extra money to buy an i7-820QM be a worthy investment? The 720 has a 6Mb cache while the 820 has an 8Mb cache and is slightly faster than the 720.

    Is it worth it?

    How much is the difference? Is the effective frequency (speed) also different?

    Knowing Intel, I'd say it won't make too much of a difference unless you happen to do a lot of audio and video encoding/decoding and play a game that uses cache heavily.
