The Intel Core i7-3770 is an Ivy Bridge processor. With four cores and eight threads the 3770 has excellent single , dual and multi-core performance. Comparing the 3770 to the 4770K shows that the 4770K leads by 11% at stock speeds and, thanks to an unlocked multiplier on the 4770K, by 15% at overclocked frequencies. The i7-3770 has a very strong performance profile which includes multi-core capabilities that are likely to be overkill for the majority of desktop users. Comparing the 3770 to the 3770K shows that the unlocked 3770K allows for, on average, an additional 8% increase in performance. [Mar '14 CPUPro]

Bought used for 100€ more than two years ago. OC'ed on Asrock Z77 Pro 4 the nonK 3770 to AllCore 4Ghz and still performing very well (81,x% on this Benchmark) Used in Games around 40-70% max. No need to buy a new CPU

Despite not a K version, rocksolid performance and with a bit ram and SSD you can do heavy stuff, even a small server is perfectly smooth once installed, power enough in virtualisation—Aug '15


Excellent

Still holds up very well with overclocking after all the years. One of the best CPUs for the buck!


Excellent

Had it for quite a while, still runs everything I need (from VM to video games) and doesn't limit my R9 Nano.
