    Intel is expected to unveil its 4th generation Core "Haswell" processor family by early-June, along the sidelines of the 2013 Computex event. In addition to being available in 1000-unit tray quantities to OEMs, the desktop variants of these processors will be available in their familiar retail box packages. Multiple sources confirm that pricing of these chips will be largely identical to that of the current Core "Ivy Bridge" series, with succeeding next-generation part for each current generation one. The table below describes their US MSRP (excl. taxes).

    The i7-4770K is clocked lower and has a higher TDP than the i7-3770K. That's interesting. I hope that means that the IPC improvements are significant.

    I kinda wonder how cheap sandy chips will become. I also really have that upgrade itch and I want to pair it with a matx board... patiently waiting for reviews.

    I think the IPC will be a bit better, but they stuffed a much more powerful iGPU inside.

    Look at the chart - stock clock of i7-4770K is 3.4 GHz; stock clock of i7-3770K is 3.5 GHz.

    4670K is a tempting price if it provides a decent upgrade to the current.

    i think you are looking at the i5, not i7 because it`s the same with 3770k

    It`s me or the msrp is lower than ivy?

    Not sure what graph you're looking at but the one here says 3.5Ghz, 3.9Ghz turbo for the 4770k which is the same as the 3770k.

    These new CPU's do look tempting but my i7 920 & i7 970 are both going strong :toast:

    Sandy chips? Gee wish I could get one of those, 2700k in particular. No supply in AU for 10 months.

    They have gone up in price since the release of IB strange enough, you can now buy a 3570k for less than a 2500k :rolleyes:

    Right price for the 4770k. My next buy, hope they are good to overclock even at day 1.

    I guess I'll stick with my 970 and 2600k for my main rigs... But if I decide to upgrade or side grade.. I'll change out my 2600k and give it to my daughter which is still running a Q9550.. She won't notice a difference, but I'll see it in crunching.

    I would bet a pound of flesh your Q6600 is bottlenecking that HD7970 noticeably.

    You may want to consider upgrading that Q6600 of yours specially with that 7970 card :eek:

    Two systems ago, i had a Q9550@4.3 which was SERIOUSLY bottlenecking a 6970,
    i moved to a 2700k, and the difference was day and night :D

    The gfx upgrade will be quite significant not the Ipc so much, im not impressed with the default clocks at all , seams intel is goading enthusiasts and amd to me.

    Don't know about the Q6600@3.6, but for my i5 750@4.0 the Nvidia 670@1350 is the bottleneck in 90% of the games. Sure you might get better average FPS with faster CPU, but I'm looking at FPS dropping below 60.

    I do want to upgrade (look it's shiny!), but I can't find a logical reason. :(

    For gaming, i5 vs i7. Until now almost no game took advantage of the extra L3 or HT, the situation is slowly changing. It would be awesome to see the difference in modern games when both CPU are at the same clock.

    AFAIK TDP is higher because the VRM is integrated onto the die. Total platform power remains the same, if not slightly lower.
