    After checking the specs according to the source website there are a few differences, including:

    Thermal Monitoring Technology
    Anti-Theft Technology
    Trusted Execution Technology
    vPro Technology

    What do these actually do? Your guess is as good as mine. :)

    What's the difference between this and the 4770K? It's hardly priced any differently.

    As of when this was posted, it's not on intel's site.

    What's the difference? 0.02%?

    Seems like a business class desktop chip to me with the added security features.

    The 4771 is the same as the 4770 except for the speed. The 4770 is 3.4 while the 4771/4770k is 3.5 though they all have the same turbo speeds. Some people were saying it's replacing the 4770 but the roadmap shows them side by side and with the price difference, it doesn't make sense.

    Thermal Monitoring Technology does just what it says. It monitors the thermals of the CPU. It basically keeps the CPU at or below its maximum TDP. Not sure if this is truly a separate feature than what's already in other Intel CPUs (such as SpeedStep or the C states).

    The Anti-Theft is pretty neat. It allows you to send a code that you have created to kill the system if it is stolen. Keeps sensitive data from the bad peoples hands.

    TXT (Trusted Execution Technology) is pretty much another level of security much like Secure Boot. It allows the system to only boot in trusted mode with a trusted OS.

    And as for vPro, its been around for a while and some of Intels desktop models have it (normally DT Xeons or higher end models). Its a hardware level security and management system. It has the ability to allow for a admin to remote into the system on a hardware level instead of a software level. Its pretty neat stuff and I have always wanted to try it.

    This CPU is pretty much best in a business environment more than a home desktop PC.

    It's what the 4770 should have been. The 4770 (non-K) never made sense. Why give up 100 MHz in addition to the unlocked multiplier? If you're not going to overclock, you want the highest stock frequency possible...

    Also don't forget that in addition to missing VTx support, the K models lack TSX/Transactional memory support, a feature that can be used to improve multi-threaded performance. This may become an issue in the future.

    Annoying how Intel cripple their processors like this just so they can make a few extra bucks.

    and intel doesn't believe in price drops so i'd expect the 4770 to remain the same price.

    Not worthy of an upgrade over my 2600k just yet will wait for a true successor not just a number change.

    Is this the NSA version of the 4770k?

    I don't trust anything marketed as trusted. Sounds like it might not run some, if not any version of Linux. To be a trusted OS it probably has to have a government approved back door.

    The 100mhz difference on base clock makes no difference unless you actually manage to push the processor to it's TDP.. The only thing the i7 4770 really gives up compared to the i7 4771, is a chunk of it's price.

    VTx, TXT and vPro aren't important features for 99% of home users, so it's really not a big deal that they're missing on the i7 4770K.

    But the k does have thermal monitoring and at.

    So basically if they're priced about the same, why wouldn't anyone get this over the 4770k, even for gaming? Better security is good for home use too.
