Application Performance

In Excel 2010, the Core i7-3770K provided similar performance to the i7-2600K. This meant that it was 9% faster than the Core i7-3820, yet 24% slower than the i7-3960X.

When testing with WinRAR the Core i7-3770K was just 3% faster in our 700MB compression test and 5% faster in the 400MB compression test when compared to the i7-2600K.

Again we see little difference in performance between the Core i7-3770K and i7-2600K processors.

Fritz Chess 13 is the first big win for the Core i7-3770K, as it was ~10% faster than the i7-2600K which also allowed it to overtake the i7-3820.
