Dear,
could anyone tell me which one is best one between the two processors
i7-3820 vs i7-3770k

THanks in advance

at stock speeds the 3770 wins out, see the link

http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/523?vs=551

although the speeds are basically identical 3820 - 3.6GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) vs 3.5GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) on the 3770. the 3820 has 2MB more on the L3 cache, supports quad channel memory and sits in the newer 2011 socket. all of that may make the 3820 more appealing

Or less appealing since the whole platform is more expensive.

Great point, if I had to choose between those two CPU's, the 3770k definitely looks more attractive due to it's lower platform price.

If you're a gamer or 'light' computer user then the 3770k is more than enough. If, however you will be perhaps using the computer as maybe a workstation (intensive video rendering etc) and or plan on quad crossfire or SLI then the extra pcie lanes and associated bandwith increase may make the 2011 platform more appealing.

Someone delete it I filed a complaint and I got it back. Is nice locked I can update you don’t, anyway I hoped that was enough

i think you missed the point, you are the troll and your knowledge on air flow is pathetic as was your rant, hence mouse monkey locking the entire thread.

You missed the point the people that evaluated that thread and find it worth to exist are more important than you or me.

So what's your point the op is nice to get ivy?

IB is fine unless you want to go for max overclock! Over 90% of PC users will never overclock.

i totally agree with the former importance in the statement above but not the latter

my point is in the first post. end of discussion as you are starting to hijack this thread

To the above i say the otherheating has nothing to do with the OC.

In the end is better if anyone say what thinks is best and let the op to descite.

OP, ignore the troll on the thread. Ivy Bridge is a great CPU line, and around 10%-15% faster per clock then Sandy Bridge is.

I personally think for your money the Intel Core i7 3770K is a better deal, or even an Intel i5 3570K. LGA 2011 has great CPU's for extreme high-end gaming and workstations, but it's also very expensive compared to LGA 1155. Plus Intel has a nasty habit of abandoning sockets (LGA 1156, 1366) after a few years. I haven't heard a word yet on whether or not Ivy Bridge-E will even work on LGA 2011, though I assume so.

The 3770K has in theory better over-clocking potential. The 3820 has decent OCing as well, but the multiplier is partially locked.

The biggest advantage though is that LGA 1155 has much more affordable motherboards of excellent quality, and LGA 2011 Motherboards are pretty damn expensive. What are you planning on using this PC for?

Hello friends,
Thanks for all your valuable comments.

i'm just a bit confused right now, as there is no high performance CPU available for X79 chipset yet like the 3770K CPU which is having best reviews on the internet as compared to others.
& i think there is no upgrades options available in future for Z77 chipset now. its the end of Z77 era..right ? & no new processors with extra cores

so i would request you guys to provide me a better configuration for an high end PC for gaming, graphics & Development

THanks in Advance

The high performance CPU for the X79 chipset is the 3960X, a Six-Core i7 Sandy Bridge E. There will be upgrades in the future for Z77. It's a relatively new chipset and will probably be able to run Haswell. Z68 and P67 run Ivy Bridge CPU's, even though Z77 was the chipset that was designed for Ivy Bridge.

Hi,
It seems you never really found your answer so perhaps I can clarify and you can take a peek at my answer and hopefully you find the answer you were looking for! I persoanlly have the 3820 but only because I didn't have the cash upfront for a 3960, 3930, or 3970 just yet but I wanted a hex-core later on. Since I planned only to game in the short term and acquire all I needed for video editing and redering (also multitasking on up to 3 screens with different programs running) later, but all the hex-cores (or the Xeon octo-core) use only the 2011 socket it was an easy decision for me to pick the 3820 especially at the same price as the 3770 at the time I bought it!

Yes the motherboards are pretty darn expensive, like the price of a decent GPU actually LOL! I personally think that if you intend on a hex-core upgrade later (by later I mean about a 12-18 months later) then I say snatch the 3820 with an X79 mobo for the time being. If you have no intention on any CPU intensive actions like multitasking or video editing or rendering or even animations with say for example a huge program like photoshop master suite that benefit from more cores and such then I say don't waste your money!

Personally I wouldn't even waste the cash on an i7 if all you will do is game honestly the i7 would be the smart choice when multitasking and usng more CPU intensive programs.If all you intend to do is game and browse the web, social networking and some video streaming like Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Instant Video etc. I would just simply snatch the i5 3570K and focus the huge chunk of cash you save on a really high end GPU! Anyhow I hope this helps if you have any further questions don't hesitate to ask!
