But the 4670K has the same 3.4GHz baseclock and 3.8GHz Turbo as the old 3570K, with the same quad-core layout, and 6MB of Intel Smart Cache.

Gonna be making a build with this CPU soon, decided to choose over 3570K just cause it's newer and maybe slightly more futureproof
"Reasons to consider the 4670K... Significantly higher Maximum Operating Temperature" LOL shouldn't that be on the other side... tard
Upgraded from a Phenom II 965@3.4ghz to a i5 4670k, and I can't wait until I get it. I was told that I should see a massive improvement and our Electric bill will also be grateful for the update for me. I'm coming from a cpu that is what like 4 years old now?
And the same goes for us people that bought a 3570k at the beginning of last year. We shouldn't have to upgrade to this CPU and can wait another few years to make a new system. Other than the power consumption, we got a "current" CPU a year ago.
So basically after a year the 4th gen pays for the gap in price via its improved power use. Everything after that is cake. I assume they all OC in a way to negate the small 5-7% step improvements between i5 generations (gen2>gen3>gen4 OC potential). So it all comes down to $ saved on power and being futureresistant for the next four years or so.
