AMD FX-8120; the AMD FX series has set most of the world records for overclocked CPU frequencies, but Intel’s i7 series can take higher core temperatures and has newer processors in market. I am not sure of any of these latter values imply any sort of clock rate, bit in Control Panel -> System it does mention 3.0GHz so it is either getting that from the CPU model number OR from the system in some way. Wow I am surprised someone would make that trade, I mean if he wants to jump into desktop and abandon mobile it's a good trade but why would he have such a beast laptop for no reason?
