Last month, Intel unleashed its highly anticipated Ivy Bridge microarchitecture. We had been hearing about Ivy Bridge for what seemed like an eternity leading up to the launch, and although not based a totally new design, Ivy Bridge would offer a number of enticing enhancements, like a faster Quick Sync engine, significantly improved integrated graphics, and lower power, thanks to architectural improvements and an advanced 22nm manufacturing process.

We initially took a look at Intel’s flagship Ivy Bridge-based processor, the Core i7-3770K. The Core i7-3770K is an unlocked quad-core processor with 8MB of L3 cache; integrated Intel HD 4000 series graphics; and Hyper-Threading, PCI Express 3.0 and Turbo Boost 2.0 support. The processor we’ll be showing you today, although also based on Ivy Bridge, is somewhat different. The new Core i5-3470 is based on the same quad-core die as the Core i7-3770, but it’s outfitted with less cache, a lower-end graphics core, and lacks support for Hyper-Threading, among other things...

Thanks: 2 times

Nice review and a good read Marco. Intel keeps putting it to the AMD side and it's not even a competition anymore. This thing has some darn good performance for the price.

But, some of the lower end APU's have got it going on in their little corner of the market too!

哎,这个这个cpu性能就可以秒杀AMD的旗舰了,我用的i5 3450,性能也很强悍,AMD还需要加油努力

I love computer hardware but know very little about it so I appreciate this review. Been kind of curious about this processor and had no idea that it can be partially overclocked. It really seems to be a great deal as you said Marco.

If you are looking to upgrade your intel or AMD processors then check out these Overclock Guides for your processor.
