Average Bench: 73.1% (289th of 1363)

Based on 165,077 user benchmarks.  Devices: BFEBFBFF000306C3, 0000000000000000, 1F8BFBFF000306C3, 0FABFBFF000306C3, 0F8BFBFF000306C3 Model: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4770 CPU @ 3.40GHz

The Intel Core i7-4770 features Intel's most recent (Haswell) architecture. As with each of the previous "Core i" generations Intel have managed to reduce power consumption and simultaneously increase processing throughput. The i7-4770 has a locked multiplier which makes overclocking it much harder than its unlocked i7-4770K sibling. Comparing the 4770 and 4770K shows that the 4770K yields 14% higher processing throughput when overclocked and also costs 14% more. The 4770K has 4 physical cores which allow it to process four streams of instructions in parallel. General desktop computing tasks such as checking email, watching videos and surfing the web rarely require more than two cores, so for the majority of users this processor is overpowered. If you plan to encode video or compile software then this is one of the fastest reasonably priced processors available. [Mar '14 CPUPro]

Bough a PC Pavilion 500-175el in 2014 Q1 with i7-4770, used almost everyday (as a desktop/workstation - no gaming), it still works well after almost 7 years.

A monster, despite Skylake and Kaby Lake are newer, time does not seem to move with this i7 4770, I've seen videos where it even handles a 1080 Ti without any issue. Its performance its truly remarkable and if anyone is looking for a decent gaming processor, this is the one, don't throw your money away, is either the i5 8400 or this, since this is cheaper+8 threads with decent IPC, I would get this. Capable of Ryzen 5 performance and even better sometimes.

despite it IS a 3 years old CPU, It has stood the test of time admirably, I can still run the newest games with 0 problems, and even use ShadowPlay with this with a decent Nvidia card. But I am afraid that it will change anytime soon.

Much more powerful vs Core i5-3470 than benchmarks show, for basic everyday computing. But nearly not as much value-for-money in the used market as i5-3470. Hyperthreading at the i7 level (not i3) really improves overall experience.

I think, i am going to buy it!! :)
