Aria Gladiator Sparta Haswell i5 4670K Nano Overclocked Bundle Review
It would be extremely easy to glance at the CPU Queen bar and dismiss the Sparta Nano as slow. Stop a moment though and look at the others. Yes the CPU Queen result is about 30% lower than the HT i7-4770K, but we'd expect that. Perhaps the better thing is to look at the zLib and AES results, where the i5-4670K fits nicely between a stock Core i7-4770K and our overclocks. Remember we're running at least 200MHz slower, and without the benefits of hyper-threading.
This underlying performance is backed up by the memory benchmarks. On our standard bench rig we run 2400MHz Corsair memory, and yet the little 1866MHz Crucial kit is up there with the best of them at around 30000 MB/s and, in the write test, the best of them all!
