Average Bench: 75% (78th of 1059)

Based on 37,394 user benchmarks.  Devices: BFEBFBFF000306C3, 0000000000000000, 1F8BFBFF000306C3, 0FABFBFF000306C3, 0F8BFBFF000306C3 Model: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4770 CPU @ 3.40GHz

The Intel Core i7-4770 features Intel's most recent (Haswell) architecture. As with each of the previous "Core i" generations Intel have managed to reduce power consumption and simultaneously increase processing throughput. The i7-4770 has a locked multiplier which makes overclocking it much harder than its unlocked i7-4770K sibling. Comparing the 4770 and 4770K shows that the 4770K yields 14% higher processing throughput when overclocked and also costs 14% more. The 4770K has 4 physical cores which allow it to process four streams of instructions in parallel. General desktop computing tasks such as checking email, watching videos and surfing the web rarely require more than two cores, so for the majority of users this processor is overpowered. If you plan to encode video or compile software then this is one of the fastest reasonably priced processors available. [Mar '14 CPUPro]

I'd had this intel CPU for five years now and find it handles even newer games without an issue. I wasn't even aware how much I liked it until I got into building my own computer. Recently I bought a project PC from a friend and it needs a better CPU, its running an amd 8320 right now and that thing runs like 20 - 25% slower the 4770 but its not bad and the motherboard it's in can run RAM at 2200 so i'm looking to make use of it. All I need is a decent GPU which like a 1050 for $200 is perfect and a decent CPU and il have two computers, one for backup or sale.

despite it IS a 3 years old CPU, It has stood the test of time admirably, I can still run the newest games with 0 problems, and even use ShadowPlay with this with a decent Nvidia card. But I am afraid that it will change anytime soon.

I think, i am going to buy it!! :)
