Front view of Intel Core i7 3770K

Reasons to consider the
Intel Core i7 3770K

Report a correction
Much higher clock speed 3.5 GHz vs 1.2 GHz Around 3x higher clock speed
Much newer manufacturing process 22 nm vs 45 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
More advanced architecture x86-64 vs x86 A 64-bit architecture allows more RAM to be installed and accessed by the processor
Much higher GPU clock speed 650 MHz vs 200 MHz 3.2x higher GPU 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
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.69 GHz vs 0.8 GHz More than 5.8x better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Has virtualization support Yes vs No Somewhat common; Boosts performance of virtual machines
More cores 4 vs 1 3 more cores; run more applications at once
More threads 8 vs 2 6 more threads
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.8 GHz vs 0.8 GHz More than 6x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Newer Apr, 2012 vs May, 2010 Release date over 2 years later
