I just found a pair of 8800GTs for $20, but this is true.

$200 USD for a used 4770k? That's a bit high. They are closer to 150 and even lower on Reddit due to no eBay fees. It's very cool but completely useless to the US market and likely many other markets as well.

What was the power draw? Was it less? Was heat less? I literally might get one for my micro PC build! XD

I mean...did you watch the video? xD 

 

I'll make it easy for you. Temps were lower, gaming performance was pretty close, generally within 10% of a 4770K, and the voltage reading wasn't operational in the bios.

I use a laptop with the i7-4720HQ that's over 3 years old now, but performs extremely well for all sorts of applications, even today. Furthermore, this video made me proud of owning a laptop with this CPU, once again! This 47 watt, 4 core, 8 threaded CPU with 6MB L3 cache & 3.6Ghz turbo boost speed is a beast, very close in performance to many desktop grade i7s, & I love it!

Multitasking on this is actually faster than a 4690k in some cases not bad for a laptop CPU. Gaming with the lower clock speeds is the only real con.

What am I missing here because 450 yen is about 5 bucks australianimage.png.77e13b330a08fa7ffc6835cbadd9947b.pngimage.png.effae91ee946bf36a5061a4f914a0e15.png

Maybe because it's Chinese and not Japanese....

Looks like around 64$ US dollars for it, but I don't fully understand the packaging options...


So rise up, all ye lost ones, as one, we'll claw the clouds

He finally did it :D didn't have to pay anything more than shipping and the CPU itself here in singapore so they make more sense here.

@LinusTech gigabyte boards don't play nice with crystal well CPUs but other than that the seller claims they work with any other lga 1150 motherboard.

Wow... you should see if you can unlock this chip using the Haswell microcode hack. If you could put the full suite of desktop advantages on an unlocked mobile chip, I bet you could easily have the fastest 4720 in the world.  I have an unlocked 4700MQ but my particular laptop and BIOS wont overcome current and TDP throttling, I think I’ve seen +4.5g on other Haswell mobile chips.

Scrolling through TaoBao shows some more cheaper models such as this one which costs 85.3 CAD for the tested model though I'm not sure they are the same socket.

 

That said, I'm using a 4720HQ laptop too!

Cheapest i saw was an ES chip for $50-60, but seller has taken it down for now.

yes this and other linked webs always has incredibly cheap items compared to other online sites, but dont expect anything cheap for known branded pricey stuffs(cpu / gpu ).

and you must read descriptions and reviews, as they both could be very unclear

Fuck no, why with a thumbnail picture like that.

 

I love it how they just buy knowing a scam, and act like it should be legit. LOL

Have to do a vid like that atleast once a year.
