Even got over 10 000 score in 3DMark 2013
You want my opinion?
4670k will be a little faster but it's not nearly as fun to play with. I OCed SB and AMD would have to be way, way slower for me to go Intel simply for the fact that AMD has the superior enthusiast platform when it comes to tweaking things and having chips that you can do goofy things with (like 1.7v mid 5ghz boots into Windows for CPU validation). You simply don't get that on Intel process, it's a lot more fragile than SOI.
AMD has a really, really fun platform to play with with bulldozer. What are you going to do with Haswell overclocking? Maybe play with straps a little bit and then just change the CPU multiplier? Adjust vcore a little and have temps go crazy? it just stinks to be honest.
I put it simple when people are trying to choose.
Intel if you want to win benchmarks
AMD If you want to have a fun rig to overclock with a ton of features.
