Looking at CINEBENCH performance you can see our i7 4770K shows a nice jump compared to the i7 3770k. You can see we're behind the higher-end X58 builds, though across the board, especially the very expensive Extreme Edition processors from Intel.

Looking at the Lightroom numbers you can see that the 4770k comes out ever so slightly ahead of the 3770k. Overclocking performance is really strong and you can see we come out ahead of our other setups. This is great considering the price difference between these CPUs.

Out of the box you can see the Media Espresso numbers are slightly ahead of the previous generation 3770K. Overclocking to 4.6GHz you can sees bring our numbers in line with our high-end i7 3930K and slightly behind the much more expensive i7 3970X Extreme Edition.
