Average Bench: 78.1% (76th of 1137)

Based on 56,491 user benchmarks.  Device: BFEBFBFF000306C3 Model: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4670K CPU @ 3.40GHz

The Intel Core i5-4670K is the latest middle tier desktop processor from the fourth generation of Intel's Core range codenamed "Haswell". In terms of raw performance this processor slightly bests its predecessor the 3570K achieving approximately 10% higher server benchmark scores. In terms of real world performance the single core improvements are more relevant as more than two cores are rarely used for most typical consumer tasks and these have also improved by around 10% over the 3570K. It's not all good news though as the price increase of 14% more than offsets the performance improvements. This processor currently represents approximately the same value for money as its predecessor, the i5-3570K. [Jun '13 CPUPro]

Review  www.vortez.net/...

With Haswell a new socket is required – this will probably exasperate some, especially if they have only just moved to Intel Z77. But with this new LGA 1150 socket, there is still compatibility with LGA115X CPU coolers and of course dual DDR3 memory kits which should help lower the cost for those wanting to jump ship.

Review  www.anandtech.com/...

You get more performance and a better platform at roughly the same prices as Ivy Bridge a year ago. It’s not enough to convince folks who just bought a PC over the past year or two to upgrade again, but if you are upgrading from even a 3 year old machine the performance gains will be significant.

Excellent performing CPU and is now coming down in price a little with the release of the i5-4690K. My only real criticism so far is that it gets extremely hot when pushed to high clock speeds.—Sep '14

Great performance for price (at time of purchase 3 years ago, now the 6600k eclipses it). Overclocking with stock cooler not recommended. Takes everything I throw at it in normal desktop use and gaming and has no problem with single player gaming, unless you plan on running multiple game servers simultaneously while playing a game on the system... Otherwise all around very good CPU.
