Core i7-3770K Vs i5-3570K

Update 8/1/2012 – The table was incorrect in the Hyperthreading figures ( It has been updated). Bench mark results has also been updated.

– The Core i7-3770K as well as the i5-3570K belong to the Ivy Bridge group of processors that makes about 10% improvement the CPU performance ( clock to clock ) and close to 50% jump in the integrated graphics performance, when compared to Sandy bridge.
– The Core i7-3770K supports Hyperthreading that i5-3570K does not. Additionally, the Core i7-3570K is clocked 100 MHz higher. This makes Core i7-3770K better than the i5-3550K.

    I think the Hyperthreading figure has been swapped between the two processors. The i5 does not support Hyperthreading, i7 does.
