CPU TESTING

Our CPU testing is conducted with a discrete graphics card (a GeForce 9400 GT) to eliminate integrated graphics as a variable, most notably with regards to power consumption. It's also necessary for fairly comparing CPUs that do not have an onboard graphics such as Bulldozer and Sandy Bridge Extreme models.

CPU Performance

A modest amount of time was shaved off in all of our tests compared to the i7-3770K and power consumption was also slightly improved. The 4770K's strong performance brings it closer to the i7-3960X though the more expensive Sandy Bridge Extreme chip has a slight edge in multi-threaded and memory intensive applications. Still, the 4770K is a superior all-around processor thanks to its much lower cost and energy efficiency.
