I'm very curious, how the intel 4820K would stuck up against it's bigger brothers and Haswell? This question I think would be more appealing to most users and enthusiasts. Otherwise, nice review as allways :supz:

Totally agree, but Intel did not send any out to us before the launch. :(

That said... a quad-core Ivy Bridge-E 4820K versus a quad-core Haswell 4770K wouldn't be a battle as it would be 8-threads each. Same turbo speed (3.9GHz), but the 4820K would have 2MB more cache.

In the end I would expect to see that Haswell would have it on both price, power consumption and performance, not to mention a lower platform build cost.

For $279 the 4770K is hard to pass up.

Pretty disappointing to anyone who isn't running servers. Too bad Intel gives their "enthusiasts" whom are willing to spend more money older technology than their counterparts. I don't know about you, but that sounds like a bad idea.
