Reviews for the Cyberpower Zeus Hercules
Source: Laptop Mag Archive.org version
Combined with an Intel Core i7 processor and a 120GB SSD, the integrated Iris Pro 5200 GPU can't compete with the Nvidia's and AMDs of the world, but it's powerful enough to place the Hercules firmly in the conversation. But the $1,082 Hercules still has some labors to overcome, such as poor battery life, a lackluster display and an unresponsive keyboard.

Integrated graphics (GT3 + eDRAM) as found on certain Haswell CPUs. It is the fastest version in its family.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
4750HQ: An Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.0 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.2 GHz. Offers an integrated Iris Pro Graphics 5200 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
