Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Review
Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz is a Quad desktop CPU based on 22nm, Ivy Bridge micro-architecture.
It offers almost all of the Ivy Bridge features, except Multi-Threading. Each Core is initially clocked at 3.4GHz and will go up to 3800 MHz (Single and Dual Modes), 3700 MHz (Triple Mode)
3600 MHz (Quad Mode). It should consume no more than 77 Watt.
It also features integrated Graphics called Intel HD 4000 (and not 2500 unlike 3550), clocked at 650 MHz (up to 1150 MHz in Turbo Mode).
Its gaming performance is only slightly lower than high-end i7 CPUs but it performs considerably worse on other software applications.
Paired with the appropriate GPU, even the most demanding games will run at the highest settings.
Compared to previous 2500K, it performs up to 15% better and heats less thanks to the smaller technology.
