Front view of Intel Core i7 3770

Reasons to consider the
Intel Core i7 3770

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 22 nm vs 130 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much higher clock speed 3.4 GHz vs 1.4 GHz Around 2.5x higher clock speed
Much more l2 cache 1 MB vs 0.5 MB 2x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
More cores 4 vs 1 3 more cores; run more applications at once
More threads 8 vs 1 7 more threads
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.03 GHz vs 1.9 GHz More than 2x better overclocked clock speed (Air)
More advanced architecture x86-64 vs x86 A 64-bit architecture allows more RAM to be installed and accessed by the processor
Supports dynamic frequency scaling Yes vs No Somewhat common; Allows for maximum performance when needed, while conserving power and minimizing heat production when not needed
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
Has virtualization support Yes vs No Somewhat common; Boosts performance of virtual machines
Supports trusted computing Yes vs No Somewhat common; Allows for safer, more reliable computing
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.32 GHz vs 1.4 GHz More than 3x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Newer Apr, 2012 vs Jun, 2004 Release date over 7 years later
