Reasons to consider the
Intel Core i7 3770

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 22 nm vs 45 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
Higher clock speed 3.4 GHz vs 2.9 GHz More than 15% higher clock speed
Slightly more l3 cache 8 MB vs 6 MB Around 35% more l3 cache; more data can be stored in the l3 cache for quick access later
Significantly better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.03 GHz vs 2.9 GHz Around 40% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
More threads 8 vs 4 Twice as many threads
Higher Maximum operating temperature 67.4 °C vs 55 °C Around 25% higher Maximum operating temperature
More l3 cache per core 2 MB/core vs 1.5 MB/core Around 35% more l3 cache per core
Newer Apr, 2012 vs Feb, 2009 Release date over 3 years later
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.32 GHz vs 2.9 GHz Around 50% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
