Not exactly correct dragon. You are forgetting those performance improvements at the cycle level. IE efficiency. Depending on the test or scenario a 4770K is 5-10% more efficient per clock than a 3770k. This means a 4.5GHz Haswell will outperform a 4.7Ghz to 4.9Ghz Ivy B. Add in the reduced power requirements, the lower noise need to cool it at the more moderate OC ...and the H is the better chip for most people. The only exceptions are edge cases who will push the 3770K well past these levels.

People get too caught up in numbers. AMD and Intel know this and thats why the Ghz war raged as long as it did. Peeps need to stop looking at GHz and start looking at results. Add in the better PCH that goes along with Haswell (Z87) and the Intel 4 is the only sensible choice for new builds. NOW for someone on a 3770K...skip the 4 series and wait for the 5...or 6 series. Its the only sensible thing to do as most of the improvements are nullified by a liberal use of OC. ;)

Haha this makes me feel so much better. I guess coming from an i5-750 my choice of Haswell isn't bad.
