Hate to say it, but it depends entirely on workload and OS/Compiler.

Overall I'd expect 4770k to win out on Windows over a wider range of workloads. Linux is not as clear cut due to various compiler options/optimizations.

Ruling out "no winner" is a little unreasonable. They aren't uniformly "better" than each other in the way that a Sandy Bridge i3 is simply not as good as a Haswell i5. I'm assuming you are knowledgeable enough to know the fundamental differences between AMD/Intel, but there is something that not as many people seem to know; that for video rendering, virtualization, and some other non-gaming boring stuff, AMD processors will, in many cases, be the winner because of the more cores, even if the individual performance of each one is lower. But of course, they are a lot of applications that I'm sure you're well aware of will have a better result. That's my 2 cents.
