Intel Core i7-4770 advantages



Intel Core i7-4770
  • Single-threaded performance of the Intel i7-4770 microprocessor is higher.
  • In multi-threaded tasks, the Intel Core i7-4770 is about 440% faster.
  • Memory performance of the Core i7-4770 is better.
  • The processor provides hardware acceleration of virtualized programs.
  • This CPU supports SSE4.1 and SSE4.2 instructions.
  • The processor incorporates Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) technology. These instructions accelerate AES encryption and decryption, and are useful if you need to protect your disk or network data.
  • The Core i7-4770 has AVX, AVX2, F16C and FMA3 instructions, that appeared in modern microprocessors not too far ago. Although these extensions are not widely supported by applications yet, their support should improve in future programs.
  • In addition to 4 CPU cores, the processor has integrated HD 4600 GPU. This graphics unit is not a substitute for high-end graphics cards, however it can be used for casual games and 3D apps.
  • The Socket 1150, used by the i7-4770, is still actively supported by Intel. The company has plans to launch new processors for the socket in the future.

Benchmarks

System setup

Intel Core 2 Duo E4500 and Core i7-4770 processors were tested using different system components, that are identified by MB, RAM and VID columns in the tables below. The numbers in each of these columns correspond to one of motherboards (MB), memory configurations (RAM) or graphics adapters (VID), listed below:

MB - Motherboard(s):
1. INTEL DH87RL
2. ASROCK 4CORE1600TWINS-P35
3. INTEL DP965LT

RAM - Memory:
1. 2 GB DUAL-CHANNEL CORSAIR TR3X3G1600C9 DDR3
2. 2 GB DUAL-CHANNEL CORSAIR CM3X1024-1333C9 DDR3
3. 2GB DUAL-CHANNEL CORSAIR CM2X1024-6400C4

VID - Video card(s):
1. MSI R6670 1GB GDDR5 (ATI RADEON)
2. POWERCOLOR 24PRO256M DDR2 (ATI RADEON HD2400)

All tests were performed at default frequency and voltage, using manufacturer's stock fan/heatsink. None of the components were overclocked. Motherboard BIOS options were left at default settings.

The results of all benchmarks are broken into four categories: multi-threaded, single-threaded, memory intensive and graphics / gaming.


Core 2 Duo E4500 vs Core i7-4770 single-threaded benchmarks

Single-threaded benchmarks run on a single CPU core, and do not depend on such features as the number of cores, or Hyper-Threading technology. Additionally, they do not utilize on-chip caches, dedicated to other cores.

Core 2 Duo E4500 vs Core i7-4770 graphics benchmarks

Graphics benchmarks depend on the type of integrated or discrete graphics adapter, and to less extent on the processor performance. Because these benchmarks are synthetic, they may not truly represent gaming performance. However, they still can be used to estimate whether one processor will perform faster or slower than another CPU in games and other 3D tasks.

Important! The processors were tested using different types of graphics adapters, that may not be suitable for comparison.
