But would a highly overclocked 2700 match a more overclock-limited 3770 performance-wise in most cases?
Given that IB is on average 5% faster than SB at same clocks, yes...the IB chip has a better IPC
isnt the 2700k just a higher frequency of the 2600k? id get the 3770k, ivy bridge. plus i remember always getting the 1 generation behind components. now i regret it.
Yes...but some pple say it OC's better coz its a better quality chip.
There isn't much difference between IB and SB, except for slightly better IPC, PCIe 3.0 and lower power consumption due to the new 22nm FinFET technology used
