Thread title. I know the 15 inch is vastly more powerful than the 13 inch, thats a no brainer. Quad vs dual core. My question is, does the processor speed/cores only effect how long it takes to complete an action? For example for editing 4K video, at the end of the day, will the two end result products be identical regardless of the laptop that was used? Again, this is if you factor out how long it took (IE. rendering). Example, when you're dealing with GPU's a GTX 1060 will definitely result in lessor frames than a 1070. You Even if you play on the same resolution, same settings, a 1060 will out out lower frames than a 1070 so in this case the end result is a stark difference. For processors, is there a different in the end result?
