Core i7 4820K Review – A Quad Core Processor ala Ivy Bridge-E

You probably just read our six-core Core i7 4960X review and figured, dang that’s fast. But for Ivy-Bridge-E there is one quad-core processor released as well. In this review we test the new four-core Core i7 4820K (Ivy Bridge-E) processor. This is the only quad-core IBE processor that Intel will release. But it is unlocked and as such direct competition for the Core i7 4770K. That alone is interesting as X79 as a platform offers more PCIe lanes. But how well will this processor fare against Intel’s own pride and joy the 4770K ?,1.html
