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]

One of the best processors I have purchased (bar none). 2012 Dell XPS felt expensive at the time, but it is still running (2019) as my primary home computer with upgrades to graphics and SSD. I like to see double the performance before buying a new processor. It took a while for something to be released and then become affordable.

Bought used for 100€ more than two years ago. OC'ed on Asrock Z77 Pro 4 the nonK 3770 to AllCore 4Ghz and still performing very well (81,x% on this Benchmark) Used in Games around 40-70% max. No need to buy a new CPU

Despite not a K version, rocksolid performance and with a bit ram and SSD you can do heavy stuff, even a small server is perfectly smooth once installed, power enough in virtualisation—Aug '15

Very strong and good for Gaming and editing even today with all 6, 7, 8 gens out, he can outperform many of them the CPU rock in gaming with good GPU and RAM LOL and if you have a new one, you are set for good. Just awesome CPU in general for the price I just bought it for 130€ with my GTX 1060 6GB and 16GB DDR3 1600 and SSD Win 10 Pro on 1080p any game on Ultra no problem.
