Intel DZ77GA-70K and Core i7-3770K Review
Published: 23rd April 2012 | Source: Intel | Price: |
At stock the Core i7-3770K is nearly identical to a i7-2600K (7.6 and 227.5 respectively). Against the i5-2500K in our ASUS P8-Z77V Pro review it's clear that wPrime always loves as many cores and threads as it can get its teeth in to.
We usually reserve Unigine for our GPU testing, but the ability of the CPU to feed the graphics card data is a large part of the results. To this end we turned anti-aliasing off to free the GPU up a bit, and had a look at what we could achieve. As you can see the i5-2500K ended up only 0.1 FPS behind the Core i7-3700K despite both cards being at stock. The HD7970 naturally gave us a vastly improved result, and the benefits of this test will hopefully become apparent as we get a larger sample size.
