Intel has showcased the latest generation of Core i codenamed Ivy Bridge, a number of features were pinned ciamik in this processor. What are they? Chance has arrived at the editorial desk of the unit Intel Core i7-3770K equipped with a partner that is the 7 series motherboard chip, Intel Desktop Board DZ77GA-70K with the codename Panther Point.
Physically, the shape and size of the Core i7-3770K is no different with bridge Sandy generation, even still use the same socket LGA 1155. So the user can still drove in the sixth generation of Intel mainboard aka Cougar Point.
Ivy Bridge generation is made in 22nm fabrication, so that we can be sure the number of transistors that use has doubled. As an illustration, the most advanced versions of Sandy bridge has 995 million transistors in size 216 mm, while the Ivy Bridge to reach 1.4 billion transistors in packs of 160 mm.
About the performance, most likely the processor will be more fierce than the previous generation. Default clocknya been pegged at 3.5 GHz, 8MB cache, 4 cores with 8 threads, and then embedded GPU is the Intel HD 4000 with a clock of 1150 MHz. Sounds promising does not it?
Besides Intel also made some improvements. In terms of security, for example, Ivy Bridge chip already implanted a key generator that works similar to the token.
Then embedded GPU also been able to do Quick Sync video with better and can be used to display 3 monitors at once.
Then with a smaller chip fabrication is also claimed to be more power efficient, Core i7-3770K we have received a Thermal Design Power (TDP) of 77 watts.
However, the most interesting thing is, the ranks of Ivy Bridge has the potential for a better overclock and cold bug that has been muted. Thus, the user can push the processor is as extreme as possible by cooling as cold as possible.
Well, after knowing all the features it carries now is the time to test Intel’s Core i7-3770K for everyday use. Whether it’s just browsing, playing games, to perform video conversion.
