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]

MORE DETAILS

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]
