titleOne of the most exciting parts of the year as enthusiasts is a new platform launch from Intel. For months now people have been talking about Intel’s Haswell processors and rumors and benchmarks have been flying all over the internet for weeks now.

Today we are going to take a look at the new Intel i7-4770 and DZ87KLT-75K motherboard. Let’s find out how the 4770 compares to the 3770 as well as the Sandy Bridge E CPU’s as well.

If some of you have been wondering why I have been extra quiet recently it is because I have been hard at work with this launch as well as the two Nvidia launches over the past two weeks. Here is our Haswell coverage, expect to see 1-3 motherboard reviews today and a few more as we start the week.

Well, thats it! Between the 700 series Nvidia cards and this new haswell chip, time to scrap my computer and rebuild it from scratch! Goodbye Sandy-E and GTX680 4GB... ;)

Wes, good review. I'm still on the fence as to whether or not to get a new Haswell CPU and board. I had this same conflict back with Sandy Bridge. I had a very capable i7 875k (4.4ghz) and really didn't see the benefit of buying. Same is the case today. The only difference is I am not "upgrading" , but building another rig. Price difference is quite large ATM.

4770k + Z87 Mobo = $520.00
3770k + Z77 Mobo = $360.00

Now, the big question...is it WORTH it? I am having a really hard time convincing myself (and my wallet) that it is. The setup I am currently running is probably overkill for most applications I get into day to day. I can't see me needing anything in the near future. Heck, my old 875k has been passed down to my son and it still strong enough for us. oh the dilemna.

I'd personally stick with the 1155 because I know you're going to buy a video card to go along with it and the biggest leap on the Haswell is the on board graphics.
