Excerpt: Intel's Ivy Bridge processors have arrived and what better way to evaluate them than with its top SKU - the Core i7-3770K processor. We give this chip a good spin and detail you performance and power savings compared to the Sandy Bridge platform.
Pros: Relatively good performance, Power efficiency has improved, Easier to overclock, Integrated 16-lane PCIe 3.0 controller
Cons: No major architectural changes in CPU, Integrated graphics performance could be better
Conclusion: we see no immediate reason to upgrade from Sandy Bridge, but if you're moving from an older platform, Intel's Ivy Bridge should be your only high-performance and energy-efficient destination. The best just got that little bit better.
Summary: Having tested multiple 3770k Ivy Bridge CPUs now, the one thing we find ourselves worried about is the overclocking side of things. While the 3770k we've got here today didn't run into the same 90c+ heat issues that were present on our other 3770k chips, the bottom line was that overclocking performance was just lower.
Summary: A year and a half after the launch of the LGA 1155 platform Intel is updating its key component – the CPU. The new manufacturing process, improved microarchitecture and refreshed lineup – is it the coming of a new star?
Summary: When put to the test we see that the Ivy Bridge architecture isn’t greatly different to Sandy Bridge, but we were expecting that. Many of our real-world application tests such as Excel 2010, WinRAR, and Photoshop CS5 saw very little difference in performance between the new Core i7-3770K and the older i7-2600K.
Conclusion: Ivy Bridge is an important move for Intel in the greater context of things.
Pros: Tremendously better media performance over Sandy Bridge HD 4000 graphics a great improvement over predecessor Best non-Extreme CPU out there Best option without going the Extreme way Overclocking potential
Cons: Enthusiasts may fail to see the use of the HD 4000 graphics Not enough of a performance increase to dump your 25xx/26xx/27xx CPU
Excerpt: Os processadores da 3ª geração Intel Core já chegaram! O modelo Intel Core i7 3770K é o topo de gama da família, com uma frequência de 3.5GHz e turbo a 3.9GHz, 8MB de cache L3, Hyperthreading, 95W de TDP, multiplicador desbloqueado e a nova gráfica Intel HD 4000. Além deste modelo, outro que se espera muito popular é o Intel Core i5 3570K. Os processadores Ivy Bridge representam um novo Tick no conhecido e ambicioso modelo Tick-Tock da Intel.
