Average Bench: 71.3% (82nd of 961)

Based on 3,941 user benchmarks.  Devices: BFEBFBFF000206A7, 1F8BFBFF000206A7, 0FABFBFF000206A7, 1FABFBFF000206A7 Models: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2700K CPU @ 3.50GHz, Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2700K CPU @ 3.50GHz

The Core i7-2700K is a 3.5GHz Sandy Bridge processor. Sporting four cores and eight threads the 2700K has a strong performance profile, even by today's standards. Comparing the 2700K and the 4770K shows that although the 4770K is two generations and nearly two years newer there is still only around 7% separating the processors in terms of overall calculation throughput. The 4770K does have a 12% lower TDP and it's also compatible with Intel's latest platform so as a new purchase it is the clear winner, but owners of the 2700K are only missing out on marginally better performance. [Mar '14 CPUPro]
