2. Measured using 3DMark11* Performance preset - a 3D graphics benchmark that measures gaming performance. Find out more at www.futuremark.com

3. Measured on systems with Intel® Core™ i7-4950HQ Processor(up to 3.60GHz, 8T/4C, 6M Cache) and Intel® Core™ i7-3820QM Processor (2.7GHz up to 3.7GHz, 8T/4C, 8M Cache) using PCMark* 7 - includes a range of tests which measure different dimensions of your system’s performance. Tests consist of a number of small, individual workload tests. The PCMark test is a collection of workloads that measure system performance during typical PC usage.  Find out more at www.futuremark.com.

4. Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark and MobileMark, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations, and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products.
