That's obviously not true. It idles at 65-70 watts and under extreme load around 77 watts both at 3.4 GHz. There is no way your 3570K is running an entire GHZ faster and using less power than mine, that's physically impossible.
The benchmark shows the 3570k as being faster than the 6600k and 6700k, what BS is that? Get your **** straight, haha.
In what world does the 3570k have an average power consumption of over 100 watts? I used to ha e the things turbo clock set to 4.4 ghz and it would barely break 50 watts, this website is such a great idea, but so inaccurate
The snail's pace of CPU improvements is very annoying. I'm considering an upgrade to my 3.5 hear old i5 3570K because my even older motherboard died and it's practically impossible to find a new full-size ATX LGA 1155 mobo that isn't extortionately priced. It works out almost the same price to get this 6600K and a new LGA 1151 mobo, but I was hoping for a more noticeable performance gain. AMD, get your rear in gear! Intel are slacking and we need real competition to breathe life into this market
True . I hope zen makes intel start innovating again.
Why can't Intel just give us a real upgrade option, instead of just kinda slightly faster?
