Which is a better Intel i7 processor? Answered

The i7-620M, which is 2.66 Ghz (3.33 Ghz turbo mode) with 4MB cache. Or the i7-820QM wich is 1.73 Ghz (3.06 Ghz turbo mode) with 8MB cache. One is faster, but the other has a bigger cache.

If all else is equal (which I haven't checked), this would be a case where the answer depends on the exact instruction mix... in other words, it's going to depend on what *YOU* are doing with the machine, so there may not be a clear answer.

There's good reason PC manufacturers have stopped advertising exactly which chip they're using in any given model.

.  Links to spec sheets would help you get an answer but I have the feeling this is one of those "If you have to ask, you probably won't be able to tell the difference in the real world" questions.
