i5 3570K to i7 3770k - Page 2

post #11 of 15
I have a 3770K, upgrade from a 3570K. Honestly it is no different in games or general use than the 3770K. Once every 6 months when I use handbrake it saves me a couple min but nothing worth the cost.

Fully loaded, with all cores saturated, there is virtually no difference in performance between the two. The 3770k gets a small boost from hyperthreading in workloads involving many threads, which includes virtually all normal sort of desktop computer use with windows background processes running and many windows applications running simultaneously. However actually saturating all four cores of a 3570k with that type of workload and current software is pretty difficult. In practice no thread is going to be waiting on either processor much at all.

Chances are you will see a miniscule difference between the two in any real-world measure. Seat of the pants you might "feel" the i7 is quicker but its probably a psychological effect rather than a computational one.

Best part of the i7 vs i5: opening the Task Manager and seeing 8 core graphs. Really, that's about it.
