The Intel Core i5-3470 is a relatively fast quad core desktop processor based on the 3rd generation Ivy Bridge architecture which was launched in Q2 2012. It scores a good effective speed of 87 (max turbo frequency of 3.6 Ghz). Unlike the ‘K’ model processors, the i5-3470 doesn't have an unlocked multiplier, so the max overclocked frequency is not much beyond its stock frequency. The i5-3470 features integrated Intel HD Graphics 2500 which are relatively weak by modern standards, so to enjoy a good 3D gaming experience a GPU upgrade is necessary. Whilst the 3470 is a reasonable CPU, it's only fractionally cheaper than the i5-3570K which scores an effective speed of 98 and has an unlocked multiplier. Overall the 3470 is somewhat dated and there is far better value available in today's market[Nov '14 CPUPro]

good for if you have an extremely low budget but the cores look like they'll be a problem in some games, would recommend saving up for a cpu like an i5 8400 [Jan '19 rai7]
