Intel Core i7-3770K

Intel Core i7-3770K

Why You'll Dig it:

Increase the performance and efficiency of your PC with the Intel Core i7-3770K BX80667i73770K Processor. This 3rd generation Quad-Core Intel Core i7 Unlocked Processor delivers ultra-fast processing speed at 3.50GHz, further improved to a blazing fast 3.90GHz with Intel Turbo Boost Technology. With Intel Virtualization Technology, the processor can increase its productive output with better utilization of its resources. Integrated with Intel Fast Memory Access, Flex Memory Access, as well as Intel Smart Cache, the processor can even communicate well with the linked system memory, optimizing use of available memory bandwidth and reducing data accessing latency. When installed, your PC can run programs, applications, and tasks seamlessly.

As we saw with the 2nd Generation processors, Intel continues to add more technologies into the processor. For example, the new Intel HD Graphics 4000 supports DirectX 11 (HD Graphics 3000 only supports DX10.1) and a maximum resolution of 2,560 x 1,600. HD Graphics 4000 processors can also span the Windows Desktop across up to three independent displays. There’s also embedded support for DisplayPort and HDMI v1.4a. Intel indicates that it has improved its Quick Sync Video performance by up to 60%.

At stock, the Core i7-3770K runs at 3.5GHz with a Turbo Boost speed of 3.9GHz. Of course, the “K” suffix on means you’ll have an unlocked multiplier at your disposal. Similar to the Core i7-2600K and 2700K, the i7-3770K provides you with four cores with Hyper-Threading, as well as an 8MB of Intel Smart Cache. Intel also added support for DDR3L.

As it runs on the Z77 chipset, the Core i7-3770K is built for the LGA1155 socket. Intel indicates the Core i7-3770K will work on motherboards with Intel 7-Series chipsets and the following Intel 6-Series chipsets: Z68, P67, H67, and H61. The Core i7-3770K also offers two built-in security technologies, Intel Secure Key and Intel OS Guard. Secure Key is a hardware-assisted tool that helps you to create highly secure and long strings of random numbers for computing tasks that require security. OS Guard helps to prevent malware from gaining kernel-level access to your operating system.

Comparing Intel Core i7-3770K against Intel’s Core i7-2600K. The Core i7- 3770K offers slight performance upgrades across the board, with the biggest gains to be found in the gaming benchmarks.


Builders planning a new system will want to pair the Core i7-3770K with a Z77 motherboard, because you’ll have access to all of the processor and chipset’s new features. On the other hand, those who’ve recently built a system based on one of Intel’s 6-Series motherboards will find that, after a motherboard BIOS update, the Core i7-3770K’s Socket LGA1155 compatibility makes the processor a simple drop-in replacement.
