Intel Core i7-4770 advantages



Intel Core i7-4770
  • One of the distinctive features of the processor is Hyper-Threading technology. The Hyper-Threading doubles the number of threads that the microprocessor can process simultaneously.
  • In single-threaded applications, the processor is expected to have 22% better performance.

i5-4430S vs i7-4770 estimated performance

The charts in the table below show performance of Core i5-4430S and Core i7-4770 microprocessors. Results for Core i7-4770 were determined based on a variety of tests. Performance numbers for Core i5-4430S were derived from benchmark results of other CPUs with identical core and microarchitecture. As a note, the estimate has greater error of margin than results obtained using real-world benchmarks. Also, this is an averaged performance, and the shown results may differ from results, that you may receive in individual tests.

i5-4430S vs i7-4770 specifications comparison

The graphs below compare the most important Intel Core i5-4430S and Core i7-4770 characteristics. These features, as well as an IPC (instructions per cycle) number, determine how well a CPU performs. The "Number of cores / threads" graph displays the number of cores (darker area). Lighter area on the graph represents the number of extra threads, provided by Hyper-Threading technology. The "Operating frequency" chart uses dark color to represent base frequency, while lighter area is for additional frequency, provided by Turbo feature. Darker area on the "On-chip cache" graph is for the On-chip L2 cache. Lighter area is for the L3 cache cache. Although the L3 cache cache is usually larger than the On-chip L2 cache, it is always slower.
