Front view of Intel Core i7 3770K

Reasons to consider the
Intel Core i7 3770K

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 3.5 GHz vs 2 GHz 75% higher clock speed
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 NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
Much better PassMark (Single core) score 2,084 vs 578 More than 3.5x better PassMark (Single core) score
Much better PassMark score 9,544 vs 370 More than 25.8x better PassMark score
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.69 GHz vs 2.54 GHz Around 85% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
More threads 8 vs 1 7 more threads
More cores 4 vs 1 3 more cores; run more applications at once
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.8 GHz vs 2.13 GHz More than 2.2x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
