Dell :: Latitude Or Precision With Intel Core I7 (Arrandale)

Nov 30, 2009

Intel's core i3/i5/i7 Arrandale processors will be released soon (Q1 2010). They all have integrated graphics but support external graphics too. Do you think these processors will be used in Dell Latitude and/or Precision laptops?

Dell :: About Up-coming Arrandale (Core I3/i5) Laptops?

Jan 6, 2010

I want something like this:

(These are the must-haves)
15" chassis class
Core i5 CPU
1920x1200 or 1920x1080 resolution
8GB of ram
Preferably an SSD, but I can wiggle on this one
Upgraded battery
Don't care too much about graphics, and since the i3/i5's have a built in video I'd go with that, it looks to be fast enough for me.

Budget is about $1500-2000

Right now there is the Alienware m15x with the mobile core i7, but I don't REALLY need a quadcore, or the faster graphics, or the power consumption of either. I am hoping that there is an inspiron or Studio coming out (tomorrow?!) that can be made to meet my above specs... Anyone have any info?

Jan 18, 2010

what the performance difference is between the Intel Core i7-620M and the . Intel Core i7-820QM. I always thought the quad core 820QM was faster, but on the hp website the dual core 620M is more expensive.

Is the 620M faster? And is it faster for specific things only?

Jan 31, 2009

Are there drivers, or software, that allow access and the bility to tweak the core clock speed on the FX 1700M video card in my M4400? I beleive the FX 1700M consumes an extra 15W of power (over the 770M) simply because it is clocked faster.

Apple :: 2.93 GHZ Intel Core 2 Duo

Jan 23, 2009

I realized while browsing through Apple's site that they are offering the new 17" with this processor, yet I don't see it listed on Intel's site.

What are the differences of the 2.93 Ghz in the 17" and the 2.8 Ghz found in the 15"?

To anybody's knowledge do they have plans of updating the 15" to accomodate the 2.93 Ghz?

HP/Compaq :: AMD Turion Vs Intel Core 2 Duo

Dec 23, 2009

I am looking to buy a laptop and have zeroed in on these two:



They have everything in common except the processor.

2005ax has AMD Turion™ II M500 2.20GHz 1MB L2 cache

1308tx has ntel® Core™2 Duo T6600 2.20 GHz, 2 MB L2 Cache, 800 MHz FSB

and the difference in their prices, here in India is Rs. 5000 i.e roughly $100.

I have never used an AMD powered PC. Are their any software or hardware compatibility issues with AMDs? Any reason why I should go with the Intel box?

Dell :: How Do I Overclock A M6300 64 Bit Intel Core 2 Duo Extreme X9000 Notebook

Mar 25, 2008

I'm curious if anyone knows if these notebooks can be overclocked? If so, how?

I read a review that one laptop vendor allowed over-clocking via BIOS but I'm not sure if Dell does this also and was hopeful that those of you much more learned than I could tell me if it's possible on the new Dell 6300 64 bit with the Intel Core 2 Duo Extreme X9000 chip?

Upgrade Dell Precision M6300 - CPU to  Intel® Core™2 Extreme Processor X9100 (6M Cache, 3.06 GHz, 1066 MHz FSB)

I know that you can upgrade to Intel® Core™2 Extreme Processor X9000 (6M Cache, 2.80 GHz, 800 MHz FSB)

I am concerned that because of the 1066MHZ FSB on the x9100 the CPU will not work.

Dell :: The OFFICIAL Studio XPS 1645 Intel Core I7 Order Status Thread

Nov 1, 2009

Because the Studio XPS 1645 Intel Core i7 Owner's thread was getting pretty *thick* with *Order Status* Inquiries, etc... I thought it was time to get an *Order Status* thread started, since so many are ordering it! And, to lessen the *heavyness* felt with the Owner's thread.

Also, we really should keep Status Updates, Order Delays, Progress as such, separated in this section of the forum! It will make the other thread "easier on the eye" per se!

So, this thread is for all the SXPS 1645 owner's to post when they ordered, status updates only, and when received etc.....Basically this is a thread for Order Status (and all included w/in the thread title) ........

Dell :: Intel's Quad-core I7-740QM And I7-840QM Show Up On Laptop Menu

May 24, 2010

This was taken from engadget - Intel's quad-core i7-740QM and i7-840QM show up on Dell laptop menu -- Engadget

"Dell's propensity for dishing out new hardware without an announcement has struck again, though this time the company might have jumped the gun as not even Intel has yet officially acknowledged the existence of these Core i7 CPUs.

The i7-740QM and its senior sibling are straight replacements for the i7-x20QM models: they retain the same cache and eight-threaded operational paradigm while jacking default and Turbo Boost clock speeds up to a maximum 3.2GHz single-core pace on the i7-840QM. Best of all? Dell's price for the 740QM is currently lower than that for its predecessor, so you might wanna order one up before somebody wakes up

Sony :: Intel Core 2 Duo Processorswill They All Be Made Redundant By Q1 2010

Nov 1, 2009

I am considering a range of Vaios at the moment (including some HP models; although Vaios are my #1 choice).

With the new Core i7 Processors out, I am wondering whether buying a Core 2 Duo processor of any sort (TT: SU; Z & SR: P9xxx, etc) now would mean they would be totally redundant by Q1 of 2010 or do you see some variants of the Core 2 Duo processor lasting a bit longer?

I realise technology continues to move forward at a rapid pace and was just curious about where Core 2 Duo stands in Q1 of next year.

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: Quad Core W520 (with Intel AMT) Powers Off When Attempting To Put It In Sleep Mode

Oct 14, 2014

I have a quad core Lenovo W520 (i7-2820QM) equipped with Intel AMT. I have all RAM slots populated (original 2GB in each that came with the machine). I have updated to the latest BIOS (1.42 at the time of writing) and latest Intel Management Engine Firmware 7.1 ( at the time of writing). The machine has Crucial 256GB X100 SSD installed in the main compartment and a regular HDD in UltraBay.
The computer acts normally in sleep mode and restart sequence only when Intel AMT states that "ME is in recovery state..." during boot.
When it looks like AMT is happy problems begin. The problem is that when I'm trying to put the computer to sleep it goes all the way until the end per normal procedure and then suddenly decides to power itself off! Obviously Windows doesn't like this and displays recovery suggestions after starting the laptop again. This happens when connected to AC and also when disconnected from it. Also, when computer reboots it turns off all power (i.e. the display along with backlight, indicator LEDs turn off and fans spin down for a sec) inbetween and automatically starts up after that.
I've tested this on Windows 7 and openSUSE 13.1 (which I had lying nearby) and same behavior happens on both OSes. On Windows, all the latest drivers and updates were installed. So I don't think this is driver nor OS dependent - rather firmware/hardware related problem.
What is funny, it doesn't matter whether Intel AMT is activated in BIOS or not. What matters is whether the Management Engine is in some kind of recovery state or not. When it's not, computer starts acting crazy as stated above and behaviour is repeatable. Intel AMT itself seems to work however. Changing the power policy in Intel ME configuration doesn't work for sleep issue.
Some things I've also tried doing:
* Replace CMOS battery (measured its voltage before putting it in, of course) with a new one - no effect
* Tried two different brands of SSDs (OCZ Vertex 3 and Crucial X100) - no effect
* Tried both legacy and UEFI modes - no effect
* Scanned RAM for memory errors - no effect
Could Lenovo try to repeat this issue and possibly do something about this?
