Average Bench: 67.9% (145th of 1206)

Based on 6,294 user benchmarks.  Devices: BFEBFBFF000306C3, , 1FABFBFF000306C3, 0000000000000000, 0F8BFBFF000306C3 Model: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4771 CPU @ 3.50GHz

The Intel i7-4771 is the same as the i7-4770 apart from a 100 MHz increase in base clock from 3.4 GHz to 3.5 GHz. In theory this increase will only impact multi-core workloads because both processors have the same turbo clock of 3.9 GHz which should be engaged during single and dual core workloads. On multi-core workloads the turbo needs to be disabled in order to maintain acceptable core temperatures and operating frequencies drop to base clock where the i7-4771 has a marginal 100 MHz or 2.9% advantage. In other words the two processors should be largely identical. Looking at the i7-4770 vs the i7-4771 benchmarks verifies this. Both the 4770 and 4771 are the current top end mainstream market leaders but for the vast majority of desktop users they are probably overkill as typical consumer use rarely requires more than two cores. [Mar '14 CPUPro]
