When it comes to gaming performance, you can see that there's really no difference between all our setups here with the exception of our AMD setup under 3DMark 11.

Power

Power draw on the setup sits slightly lower than the 4770K in both the idle and load department. On a whole, though, it does sit a little higher than we'd expect, but it could well be the motherboard. We'll know more about the power numbers when we start looking at our motherboards.

Heat

Heat numbers are really good with a solid idle and load number present. You can see we sit considerably lower than the i7 4770K on the same motherboard. Again, we'll get a better idea of our temperature numbers when we start to look at more motherboards.
