And finally, we have an Ivy Bridge processor at goldfries.com

Canon Digital Photo Professional
Converting 16 18 megapixel RAW file (CR2 format) into JPG format.
|i7-2600K (4 core 8 threads @ 3.4ghz)||115 seconds|
|i5-2500K (4 core 4 threads @ 3.4ghz)||125 seconds|
It’s faster than the i7-2600K by a bit, the i7-3770S was running at 3.5ghz – a turbo boosted speed.
Arcsoft Media Converter 7
Converting a 1 minute 47 second video taken at 1080p 25fps from a Canon EOS 550D to H264 1280×720 (720p) video.
|i7-2600K (4 core 8 threads @ 3.4ghz)||37 seconds|
|i5-2500K (4 core 4 threads @ 3.4ghz)||37 seconds|
We see a marked difference in performance here.
It’s running on stock heatsink, temperature taken when ambient is about 25c. Impressive idle mode temperature a little below 40c while full load temperature is maintained at a healthy 60c – 70c range.
As usual, great processors they are.
They key thing to note is that while the i7-2600K has starts at 3.4ghz by default, the i7-3770S starts only at 3.1ghz though both share the same cache size. The selling point of the i7-3770S is the low power consumption of 65w while the i7-2600K starts is at 95w, this is due to the 22nm lithography in Intels 3rd generation Core series processor.
The processor retails at about RM 950 (~305 USD) – now it’s just a matter of whether you can find this processor on the Malaysian market, in which I observe mostly are the 3770K and the 3770.
Graphic performance you say? Well, that will be another article.
