The Intel Core i7-3770K comes with an unlocked multiplier and is 100MHz faster out of the box. It also features 4 cores with 8 concurrent threads when using Hyper-Threading. The Core i7 3770K operates at 3.50GHz with a Turbo Boost frequency of 3.90GHz. The Core i7 3770K also misses out on Intel vPro/TXT/VT-d/SIPP technologies.
GPU performance greatly improved compared to last generation.
Support for DirectX 11.
Driver maturity improved.
22 nm production process.
Turbo Boost to dynamically adjust graphics clocks.
HDMI Audio bitstreaming supported.
Intel HD4000 iGPU significantly faster than HD3000, can be used in Z68series motherboards.
Limited GPU performance.
No dedicated GPU memory.
Still only 16 PCIE lanes.
Early production stepping doesn't overclock as well as current Sandy Bridge.
Not a huge step up from Sandy Bridge, Average overclocking potential on air.
Offers only minor performance improvements on highest-end last-generation CPU, Graphics still not comparable to what you get with a discrete video card.

When put to the test we see that the Ivy Bridge architecture isn’t greatly different to Sandy Bridge, but we were expecting that. Many of our real-world application tests such as Excel 2010, WinRAR, and Photoshop CS5 saw very little difference in pe

"Ivy is my new girlfriend," I explained to one of my female friends in the church foyer on a beautiful April Sunday morning before service. "Sandy and I had a good run. But we are over." Confused and somewhat stunned, my colleagues Preston and Jeremy...

We do CPU-reviews quite rarely, which makes them that more interesting. It's nice to every now and then check what sort of performance and features the latest platforms pack, and this time it was time to check out what's new on Intel's...

Intel's latest range of processors, code-named Ivy Bridge, uses a new 22nm fabrication process compared to the 32nm process used by the previous Sandy Bridge chips.The drop in the fabrication process allows Intel to pack an increasing number of...

If you need to update today, then there's no doubt that Intel's third-generation Core products are at the top of the pile. If you're a Sandy Bridge owner, though, there's not much here that will tempt you...

We recently took our first look at Intel's Ivy Bridge architecture. Then, we evaluated its efficiency. Now, we turn to overclocking. Recently, each of Intel's die shrinks has helped increase frequency headroom. This time, however, we ran into...

Intel’s delay of Ivy Bridge did stir some debate but it made business sense seeing Sandy Bridge rules the roost over their rival AMD’s Bulldozer platform. Most of the time we tend to look at new introductions with hype and look forward to...

The Ivy Bridge Core i7-3770K doesn't make a giant leap ahead of the previous generation of Core i7 chippery. It’s more of gentle step forward. But the die shrink down to 22nm does make for a far more power efficient chip than the previous...
