The third gen Ivy Bridge Core i7-3770K can't really be described as a consumer orientated processor. With 8 threads and four cores its capabilities are better aligned to server use. For price insensitive consumers that want the best of the best, this is currently one of the fastest processors available. The PassMark Single Thread score of 2080 points put the 3770K right at the top of the pack in terms of raw processing power and real world performance. The GeekBench and PassMark scores of 17210 and 9653 are within 20% or so of the best we have ever seen. Despite the near record breaking processing throughputs the 3770K is only rated at 77 TDP, which is also very reasonable by historical standards. For typical consumer use there are better value propositions out there. [May '13 CPUPro]

MORE DETAILS

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]
