    That's really cool, Didn't know the I3 was that powerful.
    I was talking about it overclocking on it's own, but this was interesting, thanks for linking that.

    News to me, I thought you were talking about Hyper Threading since thats all i saw in your threads and what you originally linked to

    You cant overclock i3's anymore, you might be able to bump up the BLCK Clock but youre fairly limited.

    Clarkdale i3's had overclocking but not the newer SB, IB or Haswell iterations of i3.

    --

    You didnt know the i3 was that powerful? For a second there i thought you might of read my other posts where i recommend someone get an i3 4130 to replace their Q6600 because they were on a budget and didnt want to spend a lot of money on upgrades.


    Youre either a troll or somebody who really didnt do their research before engaging in a debate, The article you originally linked to has some truth to it but it doesnt mean much at all. This is 2014, any sort of software these days are coded to take advantage of extra cores or threads a CPU might have (unless otherwise).

    i3's are plenty powerful, a decent i3 can easily beat down a AMD Richland APU when it comes to raw processing, but the advantages of an APU is that it has better integrated graphics and its overclockable. but at stock speeds the i3 will be the faster one.

    ::EDIT::

    If you read this Kaveri review - you can still see a i3 4330 performs better in quite a few of the productivity tests, Overall the Kaveri wins though, at least when it comes to gaming and its able to use its onboard GPU

    My Quote...
    "And to the one video about even an I3 is good, I don't know if he remembers that the I5 has Intel turbo boost and the I3 don't which is useful.
    So i wouldn't go as far as to say an I3 will suffice... o_O"

    That was my stamente made after we made our points about I7 vs I5, I was originally talking about Hyper threading.
    The subject can shift as you converse, Re-read how the thread progressed.
    I read the OP first post and responded to His claim about I7 improving FPS from hyper threading, no i didn't read your post.

    Now I'm a troll and/or didn't do my research. LOL
    SRSly you two are overly defensive, I'm not a troll for adding my 2 cents to a thread.
    It is really ok for people to debate back to you without being a troll, it's not that hard to believe.
    And I clearly did my research, your quoting my research... o_O are you SRS???

    TY again for this information, i really do appreciate it. minus the personal insults... :(

    it was mostly a joke, sry no offense lol:)


    ps People who buy i7 instead of idk i5 do other stuff too, where HT comes handy (audio, video production, encoding) and all recent games benefit 90% of the time.

    an extreme example SeriusSam3
    http://ht4u.net/reviews/2013/intel_core_i7_4770_4670_haswell_cpus_test/index37.php

    or an extreme example of poor cpu code where only core performance counts,
    http://ht4u.net/reviews/2013/intel_core_i7_4770_4670_haswell_cpus_test/index35.php

    But then again someone with HT can turn it off too. What's 100-150$ difference in 3-4 years time, nothing.
    I personally rather spend extra 130€ and have 8 threaded cpu then worry what's gonna be in next 1-2 years, where all goes 4-8threaded to the max..

    Gpu's on the other hand are a different story.

    http://www.anandtech.com/show/7189/choosing-a-gaming-cpu-september-2013

    here is a nice article about CPU's.

    I personally choose 4770k over 4670K. Reason? I would just say peace of mind. I do alot of gaming. But I do sometimes video and or photo editing.

    I actually observed as well that HT helps with my trifire. I cant give you exact or I cannot present you a convincing pattern and or graph about it. But when HT is enabled, it feels more smoother for trifire. Thats only my personal experience and I dont know others.

    This has been a debate since SB, IV and so on and it will be a debate again in the next CPU's coming out.

    It is mostly about budget. If you can afford a CPU with HT, why not? in the end, it will be you anyway and no one will complain about it. Its your money and its your rig not theirs....

    Well, to this I will quote yourself:

    In my perspective, only the ones (like me) who don't have filthy amounts of it look for the "value" in their money-spending. People buy GTX Titans and Porsche and Rolce Royce not for the "value" they get out of their expenditure but because they can. I'm not saying 4770K is comparable to that, but hyperthreading does have it's uses, and it's a very nice thing to have if you don't mind spending 50%more than the 4670K. It's got extra 4 threads for extra 50%. The 4670K is not a steal in the first place. You buy what you can afford.

    I did not say that 4670K is 50% cheaper than 4770K. I said 4770K is about 50% more than 4670K. It's not the same thing. You can check out any online retailer for the prices. In India the 4670K is around 16K INR and 4770K about 24K.

    spending 50% more means 50% cheaper. am I right?

    Based from price in india, 16k ruppee agains 24k rupee is what? thats about 33% more only. its not 50% more

    anyway, its up to people choices. If merely for gaming, 4670K is more than enough. HT is better if you use alot of video, photo editing.

    As for me, price here is $100 more. I am glad I choose 4770K cause it really helps with trifire. Thats what I observed.

    No.
    50% more of 100 equals 150, but 50% less of 150 equals 75.

    if: 16 + 16x/100 = 24
    then: x=50

    50% more = 1.5*base value
    and
    50% more than that = 1.5*1.5*base value or 2.25*base value so not 100% more, which would be 2*base value, but rather 125%

    Why gives 9.5 to the 4770K? With that high temps and low oc, it deserves less than 8 points
