    How do you get 30%? On quad core, I get around 26.6%. [Edit: nevermind, whereas AMD gets a higher percent jump with multicore, Intel has...

  8. Ionising_Radiation replied to the thread Precision 7740/ 7540 specs / release date.

    The 'more cores' CPUs that you're talking about are full-fledged desktop CPUs. All of AMD's notebook offerings are rather lacklustre....

  9. Ionising_Radiation replied to the thread Precision 7740/ 7540 specs / release date.

    It's likely to be around 4.4 to 4.5 GHz. The maximum all-core clock is typically around 500 MHz lower than the maximum single-core boost...

  12. Ionising_Radiation liked Aaron44126's post in the thread Precision 7740/ 7540 specs / release date.

    The only reason to get the Xeon is if you want to use ECC RAM. It is otherwise the same as the i9 if you get the one with the same...
