Intel DZ77GA-70K and Core i7-3770K Review
Published: 23rd April 2012 | Source: Intel | Price: |
The packaging for the DZ77GA-70K mirrors the usual Extreme motherboards from Intel, being an all black affair with just the skull on the front. When we consider the lengths many companies go to to grab the cool box art, they must be kicking themselves that Intel have claimed the skull. Round the back we have a selection of feature highlights, although the Z68 motherboards were so well honed that this is very much an evolutionary step rather than any wholesale changes.
Accessories are exactly what you'd expect, although it's a surprise to see a bluetooth adaptor built in. However this does follow the trend in modern computing for a lack of wires, and cross-platform connectivity.
The Intel Core i7-3770K comes in your standard Intel retail CPU box, and as you can see from the Quad+HT this is the follow-up to the i7-2700K, although with the inclusion of HD4000 graphics.
