Intel Core i7-4770K Review

Haswell is upon us, and it's time to see how it compares to the Ivy Bridge CPU it replaces.

well! thanks for the review Tom

well Haswell is not as dire as i thought it was gonna be, but from what ive seen and what i do with my rig, im better of sticking with my 3770K and and those wanting to upgrade from Sandy would benefit more

Not worth the upgrade then if you are already running SB or IB
I really wanted to upgrade but it's not worth the money or hassle to go from my 2500K to Haswell.

My last upgrade was from a Q6600 to my 2500K, and that was a huge! I'm not expecting my next upgrade to be as big as that was, but there is not enough real world difference to go from my 2500K to Haswell.

Haswell would be a good upgrade from an old AMD setup or an Intel 775 or 1366 setup though.

Am I blind or are there really no overclock results?

Nice review as always TTL!

Not much of an improvement really. Less than 10% in most things. Not that 10% is anything to be ashamed about and is a respectable increase but take that modest improvement and coupled with it looking like its not going to be as good an overclocker as Ivy (which wasnt as good an overclocker as Sandy) and I dont think youll see too many people upgrading from a Ivy or even Sandy i5/i7. Cant believe the things run so hot that a H100 cant handle them.

Signs of the times though Im afraid. Raw horsepower isnt as important anymore since an i5 can shred thru 99% of anything youre gonna throw at it (Hell an i3 can shred thru most things). With everything going mobile, looks like Intel and AMD are all about efficiency. Cant blame them really as thats the future of things.

I thought about finally jumping over to the Intel side with Haswell but think Ill ride my AM3+ rig out.

From the AMD fan standpoint, hopefully since this wasnt a giant leap forward for raw horsepower, maybe AMD can take advantage of this and make up some ground.
