Intel Core i7 4770K
Intel Core i7 4770K features 4 cores with 8 concurrent threads when using Hyper-Threading. The 4770K operates at 3.50GHz with a Turbo Boost frequency of 3.90GHz, while the non-K version features the same Turbo Boost frequency with a base clock of 3.4GHz. They are designed to work with DDR3-1333/1600 memory and feature an 8MB L3 cache.

Overall Haswell has further strengthened Intel’s position providing greater performance, efficiency and features. It might only be a mild step up from what we had with Ivy Bridge, but at $339 the Core i7-4770K is roughly the same price as the i7-3770K.80

Recently we've tested Intel's first processor based on Haswell architecture and we've come to a conclusion that it didn't bring anything new. A total of 10% increase in performances compared to its predecessor in processor tests, while...-

It is that time again, when the eighteen month Moore's Law clock hits zero and the next generation of CPU hardware arrives, fulfilling the promise of a doubling of transistors with each cycle. Known until now by the codename Haswell, Intel's...-

Overall, the new processor provides some decent performance increases in just about every department but Haswell is hot! In fact, it’s making Ivy Bridge look cool, both literally and in many other regards, like making it OK to stay with it for...88

As many in the home theater PC (HTPC) community are aware, madVR produces an unparallelled level of flexibly and performance. Producing results that rival some of the best dedicated video processors available in the market. It was not that long ago that...-

When a new processor from Intel comes out many people are expecting a huge improvement over the previous generation, but we lately we really have not seen that. If you look at the update cycle of 1 year that cannot be expected. Ivy Bridge only...90

While some computationally-intense applications are benefiting greatly from the core-avx2 compiler optimizations, not all workloads will benefit. The core-avx2 instructions also caused some performance regressions with what's found in GCC 4.8.1....-

With the high-end CPU race firmly in their pocket, Intel didn't need to light the world aflame with a significantly faster processor. Breathing room is a luxury few technology companies can claim and its given Intel time to improve their products...-

Final Thoughts ]In terms of performance the upgrade to Haswell is very reminiscent of that from Sandy Bridge to Ivy Bridge, in the sense that for the most part we only saw a very minor improvement in performance. Where Haswell looked most impressive...-

For the multi-threaded C-Ray ray-tracer, none of the tested CPUs come close to matching the i7-4770K's performance-per-Watt under Linux. Stay tuned for additional Intel Core i7 4770K "Haswell" benchmarks under Linux coming soon on Phoronix. No...-
