The Intel Core i7-6820HQ is a blend between the popular Core i7-6700HQ and the Core i7-6820HK but offers different clock rates and features. It’s also based on the Intel Skylake architecture using a 14nm FinFET manufacturing process. Given the clock speeds, the Core i7-6820HQ should perform slightly better than the Core i7-6700HQ and similarly to the Core i7-6820HK. However, the Core i7-6820HQ isn’t unlocked for overclocking so the Core i7-6820HK will have an edge over the latter when it comes to raw performance.
It’s important to note that the CPU uses Intel’s vPro security features that are found on a number of other Intel processors aimed at the business segment like the Core i5-6300U, for example. But since the Core i7-6820HQ is rated at 45W TDP, which can be adjusted to 35W and thus will deliver less heat dispersion and performance. It’s suitable for large systems from 15 inches and above and will handle every CPU-intensive task easily due to the 4-core/8-thread design, the 2.7 – 3.6 GHz clock speeds (for four threads the maximum operating frequency is 3.2 GHz) and 8MB cache.
The CPU integrates an Intel HD Graphics 530 GPU clocked at 350 – 1050 MHz with 24 EUs (Execution Units).
