Intel i7-4770K Performance

Performance in some areas shows really nice improvement while in others it is really not much of a performance gain over earlier releases. For the enthusiast gamer Haswell’s i7-4770K shows only nominal performance improvements with a 1-4 FPS higher score than Ivy Bridge. For doing tasks like editing either video or photos or encoding the new i7-4770K shows solid performance improvements, OpenCL also shows gains and the CPU handles itself nicely under pressure due to its great power management that was seen throughout the entire testing phase of the review. The i7-4770K is a small bump in the overall performance spectrum, but shows Intel making strides in new areas other than just sheer speed.

    It should be able to run it on highest settings

    In the gaming world, cuda does not matter. The Radeon HD 7970 beats the GTX 680 and comes within a decent distance to the nVidia Titan when running at resolutions like 2650X1600. You saying AMD is low end is absoloutely ridiculous. I’m not a fanboy, I just couldn’t help but point out how stupid you made yourself sound

    Wow we have a fanboy!! AMD and Intel both have a spot to fill depending on what you want. If you are looking for a laptop for basic internet and office work functionality and decent gaming functionality I would go with an AMD platform because it has superior graphics on the APU. As far as Nvidia vs AMD that is pretty much irrelevant. They are both about on par as far as price vs performance goes. And who has the top dawg GPU in pure performance usually just depends on who had the most recent series launch.
