how are you saying i7 "has taken the lead" the new generation of intel core i5 3570k bench is not available yet, the link which you had provide isn't too much interesting as you can see 3570k not available in bench comparison,

well, they are absolutely same in features except HYPER-THREADING.
let see the features
i5 3570k 22nm die shrink
3.4ghz boost upto 3.8ghz
intel HD 4000
officially support ddr3 1600mhz
max memory bandwidth (25.6GB/s)
intel wireless display "YES"
no. of display support 3 (iGPU)
support PCI-E 3.0
NO hyper-threading

on the other hand

i7 2600k 32nm die shrink
4c/8t (extra 4 threads)
3.4ghz boost upto 3.8ghz
intel hd 3000
officially support ddr3 1333mhz
max memory bandwidth 21GB/s
intel wireless display "NO"
no.of display support 2 (iGPU)
support PCI-E 2.0
hyper threading support.

overall 3570k is best deal.
even 3570k is neck to neck with i7 3770k

So the 3570k is a good choise? Cause I heard there were some heating problems with overclocking? Or still some overclocking possible? 4ghz?

you can get a decent cooler like corsair h100 if you want to squeeze it to 4.6ghz or even higher, but if you want to lesser overclock like 4.2 or 4.3ghz then get hyper 212 evo, BTW i5 3570k can be overclock upto 4.3ghz without producing heat.

May 19, 2012 7:36:51 PM
