Intel Core i7-4770K Haswell Z87 Review

PC Mark

PC Mark has always included a lot of media transcoding tests to give a good indication of performance in the type of tasks that are commonly used. 

In both PC Mark 7 and PC Mark Vantage the performance increase between the 3rd and 4th Generation Intel CPUs is nothing short of staggering. So often we see companies proclaiming a benefit from their new instruction set that just doesn't materialise in real-world testing, that an improvement actually occurring is enough to make us sit up and take note. It's not just a clock speed thing either, as the computation scores are very close.

well! thanks for the review Tom

well Haswell is not as dire as i thought it was gonna be, but from what ive seen and what i do with my rig, im better of sticking with my 3770K and and those wanting to upgrade from Sandy would benefit moreQuote

Not worth the upgrade then if you are already running SB or IB
I really wanted to upgrade but it's not worth the money or hassle to go from my 2500K to Haswell.

My last upgrade was from a Q6600 to my 2500K, and that was a huge! I'm not expecting my next upgrade to be as big as that was, but there is not enough real world difference to go from my 2500K to Haswell.

Haswell would be a good upgrade from an old AMD setup or an Intel 775 or 1366 setup though.Quote
