I'm looking at buying a new laptop PC (my old one is failing). I noticed the latest CPU clock speeds are lower than my current one though the CPUs are newer. It used to be that a higher clock speed meant better performance but obviously this is no longer true.
So when I compare CPUs, how do I know what's good or bad? See below a screenshot of 3 CPUs. The one with the worst score is my current CPU.
- Intel Core i7-4510U @ 2.00GHz
- Intel Core i7-2620M @ 2.70GHz
- Intel Core i7-4600U @ 2.10GHz
