In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD i7 5700EQ are significantly better than the Intel HD i7 3840QM.

The HD i7 3840QM has a 350 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the HD i7 5700EQ. This results in the HD i7 3840QM providing 1.4 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The HD i7 3840QM has a 350 MHz higher core clock speed and 1 more Render Output Units than the HD i7 5700EQ. This results in the HD i7 3840QM providing 1 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The HD i7 5700EQ was released over three years more recently than the HD i7 3840QM, and so the HD i7 5700EQ is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the HD i7 3840QM when running the latest games.

The HD i7 5700EQ and the HD i7 3840QM have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The HD i7 5700EQ has 12.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD i7 3840QM, which means that the memory performance of the HD i7 5700EQ is slightly better than the HD i7 3840QM.

The HD i7 5700EQ has 24 Shader Processing Units and the HD i7 3840QM has 16. However, the actual shader performance of the HD i7 5700EQ is 202 and the actual shader performance of the HD i7 3840QM is 83. The HD i7 5700EQ having 119 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD i7 5700EQ delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD i7 3840QM.

The HD i7 5700EQ transistor size technology is 8 nm (nanometers) smaller than the HD i7 3840QM. This means that the HD i7 5700EQ is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the HD i7 3840QM.

The HD i7 5700EQ requires 47 Watts to run and the HD i7 3840QM requires 45 Watts. The HD i7 5700EQ requires 2 Watts more than the HD i7 3840QM to run. The difference is not significant enough for the HD i7 5700EQ to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the HD i7 3840QM.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Intel HD i7 5700EQ is the specific version of Intel HD Graphics 5600 Mobile that is integrated in the Core i7-5700EQ Processor.

The Central Unit Initially Runs at 300MHz and goes up to 1000MHz, in Turbo Mode.

The GPU Shares the System's RAM which varies from laptop to laptop. Typically, the GPU reserves 1GB. Depending on whether or not the system's RAM is Dual-Channeled, it can access either a 64-bit or 128-bit memory interface. The operating memory clock also depends on the at which speed the System's RAM is running and is limited by the highest operating speed that the Processor supports. In this case, it is 800MHz.
It is then obvious the Memory Bandwidth depends on a lot of factors and thus this Graphics Card performance may vary heavily from system to system.

Gaming benchmarks put its performance on level with a dedicated Radeon HD 7690M.

System Suggestions
We recommend 4GB of RAM for a system with Intel HD i7 5700EQ.
