While we were impressed with the results found when testing with SolidWorks, we were blown away with what the Core i7-3770K delivered in Maya. Here it was 56% faster than the Core i7-2600K with 15.58fps, making it the fastest processor test. We are not quite sure why the Core i7-3770K performs so well in this test or how it was able to beat the Core i7-3960X.
The CINEBENCH R11.5 CPU test saw the Core i7-3770K provide a 17% performance increase over the i7-2600K, making it faster than the i7-3820 and FX-8150 processors.
The Core i7-3770K was notably faster than the i7-2600K in the in-built WinRAR test, with a multithreading result of 3992KB/s opposed to 3640KB/s.
