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


Maxon's CineBench R11.5 returns us to where we'd expect to be, with the extra performance of the Core i7-3770K pushing ahead of the i5-2500K. Far and away the most impressive result is the OpenGL test on the HD7970. Considering our Dual-Xeon setup only got 76.6 FPS this really shows how DZ77GA-70K has got things sorted. Although not shown in our graph because we're focusing upon the Z77 chipset, the i7-2600K scored 7.38 Pts compared to the 7.92 on the Core i7-3770K.



The single-core efficiency rating in POV-Ray has always been a bit of an odd one, in that the more cores you have the lower the score, which speaks more about the way the program handles a lot of threads than about the CPUs powering it. Focusing upon the actual overall score we find the stock i7-3770K capable of beating out the heavily overclocked i5-2500K. Which is what we'd hope to see, but still the results have been complex enough that it's pleasing to actually get a result that matches our preconceived ideas.
