i5-3470 vs i5-3570

Hi,

Could you tell me what the performance difference between these two CPUs will be. The i5-3570 is clocked 200mhz higher, and I wondered how much difference this will make on games.

Thanks in advance.

More about 3470 3570
  1. They i5-3570(non k version) and the i5-3470 there really inst much of a difference. Pick the on that is less expensive.
  2. If u are going to use multi-threading require software, tat will be a more performance different between them.
    But if u are only use for gaming , i5-3470 is better choice for it is more cheap and if u wan get i5-3570 , u better get i5-3570K.
  3. Thanks and, yeah, I am talking about the non K version (probably should have mentioned that).

    What kind of software is multi-threaded?
  4. Like Photoshop , or maybe some Video Encoding Software ~
    If just for gaming there will only a bit differences in it ...
    So get i5-3470 is a better choice in my opinion
  5. Friend of mine got the 3470 and i got the 3570 for the same price as the 3470 on sale down from 219 to 179. Really the difference is minimal at best. You won't even know the difference. I tend to wait for email promos and jump on them. (why always pay full price?)

    The trend lately seems like as long as you have a top tiered CPU (those are both in the top tier) combined with a really decent 2 GB graphics card ( ie: 7870 AMD, 7950, or nvidia 670, 680) you will get the best results. Games released now almost will use the entire 2 GB with ultra/high settings. Probably by next year 3 GB will be the sweet spot.

    So to answer your question - My intel 3570 (non k) combined with AMD 6950 runs everything fine at 1080p. I was doubtful with Bioshock Infinite but it plays smooth!. I'm holding off for a sale on the 7970 which would be a big jump from what i have now. At this point it doesn't make sense.

    The 3470 and 3570 are similar, other than the difference in clock speed. the 3570 does not have multi-threading.
  7. Neither have hyperthreading. You need an i7 or a 1230v2 for that.
