Intel DZ77GA-70K and Core i7-3770K Review

PC Mark Vantage
The first of our somewhat strange results comes courtesy of PC Mark Vantage. Whilst we'd expect that the hefty overclock on the P8-Z77V Pro will lead the pack, the amount that the i7-3770K is behind at stock when using the GTX570 is pretty eye-opening. It's not until we put in the HD7970 that the Intel DZ77GA-70K edges ahead at stock, but the hyperthreading seems to be twiddling its thumbs.
PC Mark 7
The more up-to-date PC Mark 7 provides a much better fist of things, although we still have a bit of a curiosity in that the GTX570 test bench is near to the overclocked P8-Z77V Pro, which we'd expect, but the HD7970 is behind that. It's all rather odd. It's not even a case of a borked run, as many attempts lead to the same scores.
