Intel Core i7 3770

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 22 nm vs 90 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Significantly higher clock speed 3.4 GHz vs 2.2 GHz Around 55% higher clock speed
Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
More l3 cache 8 MB vs 1 MB 8x more l3 cache; more data can be stored in the l3 cache for quick access later
Much more l3 cache per core 2 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 4x more l3 cache per core
Significantly better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.03 GHz vs 2.74 GHz More than 45% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Lower typical power consumption 62.56W vs 77.19W Around 20% lower typical power consumption
More threads 8 vs 2 6 more threads
Newer Apr, 2012 vs Aug, 2006 Release date over 5 years later
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Higher Maximum operating temperature 67.4 °C vs 55 °C Around 25% higher Maximum operating temperature
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.32 GHz vs 2.2 GHz More than 95% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Lower annual home energy cost 18.55 $/year vs 22.89 $/year Around 20% lower annual home energy cost
Lower annual commercial energy cost 67.45 $/year vs 83.22 $/year Around 20% lower annual commercial energy cost
