The main range that the i7-4770K is replacing is the LGA1155 and so we'll be comparing the i7-4770K to the i7-3770K. Utilising identical bench rigs, and running solely at stock, this will allow us to get a feel for the performance of the processor before we throw it into some third-party motherboards and overclock it.

The main difference to be seen from GPUz is the increase in both the amount of instructions and the increase from a stock of turbo of 3.7GHz on the i7-3770K to a stock turbo of 3.9GHz on the 4th Generation CPU.

well! thanks for the review Tom

well Haswell is not as dire as i thought it was gonna be, but from what ive seen and what i do with my rig, im better of sticking with my 3770K and and those wanting to upgrade from Sandy would benefit moreQuote

Not worth the upgrade then if you are already running SB or IB
I really wanted to upgrade but it's not worth the money or hassle to go from my 2500K to Haswell.

My last upgrade was from a Q6600 to my 2500K, and that was a huge! I'm not expecting my next upgrade to be as big as that was, but there is not enough real world difference to go from my 2500K to Haswell.

Haswell would be a good upgrade from an old AMD setup or an Intel 775 or 1366 setup though.Quote
