The Core i7-4770K is Intel's fourth generation (codename Haswell) flagship processor in the hugely successful Core range. It's not surprising that the 4770K sets a new Real World Performance index record, besting its predecessor by just over 9%. The 4770K also tops out in the remainder of our benchmarks setting new highs of 10020 and 2164 in the PassMark and PassMark Single Thread tests which equates to roughly an 8% overall performance increase over the 3770K. With a TDP of 84 watts, power consumption has increased slightly over the 3770K. The new Core i7-4770K demonstrates around an 8% performance increase over its predecessor the 3770K but it costs 12% more. As a result, at least until prices drop, this processor represents marginally worse value for money than the 3770K. [Jun '13 CPUPro]

MORE DETAILS

The Core i7-7700K is Intel’s flagship Kaby Lake based CPU which is reported to have the same IPC as its predecessor, Skylake. Comparing the 7700K and 6700K shows that both average effective speed and peak overclocked speed are up by 7%. Most of the increase in average effective speed is explained by the 5% boost in base clocks from 4.0 to 4.2 GHz. The improved peak lab speed is attributable to a combination of better overclocking capacity and improvements in Intel’s speedshift technology which make the 7700K slightly more responsive. Kaby Lake also has marginally better HD 630 integrated graphics. The i7-7700K is priced similarly to the i7-6700K so for top end gaming and workstation builds, the 7700K is the clear choice for 2017. AMD’s Ryzen will release later this year so things could change at that time. [Jan '17 CPUPro]
