Intel's 4th gen processor codename: Haswell offers superior performance over the previous generation Ivybridge by up to 10% clock for clock. This astounding performance boost results in performance improvements in multi-tasking, encoding, gaming and multithreaded applications. Intel's 4th generation processor has improved PCI-Lane 3.0 bandwidth which helps further boost performance of latest generation 3 graphics cards for the ultimate gaming experience.
For overclocking enthusiasts, Intel's 4th gen CPU has improved memory overclocking support, with up to and beyond 3000MHz possible with the very best memory kits. Memory bandwidth is critically important to Haswell compared to previous generations. High frequency memory performance significantly improves encoding, gaming and benchmarking tasks.
The biggest leap in Intel's Haswell processor is the on-board graphics which is now up to 2.6x faster than previous HD4000 found in the Ivybridge CPU. What this means is these latest processors can actually play the latest games in HD with low/medium settings applied. Of course if you want to experience True HD gaming at maximum details then a dedicated graphics card is still a must.
There are two words in your vocabulary that should never meet—Game and Over. You love playing, and you love winning, so you demand unmatched performance, the ability to customise your rig, and features that put you in control of the action. With Intel technology, you step into a heart-pounding experience. Pick up your weapon, challenge your friends, and experience gaming at its best—because the only thing more amazing than Intel technology is what you’ll do with it.
As a creative force and a professional, you must continually balance your vision with the deadlines of the real world. Intel technology helps you keep up with your creativity with unmatched and customisable performance, and feature’s that give you full control to optimise your workflow and maximise your productivity. So keep imagining, keep creating, and take your inspiration to the limit—because the only thing more amazing than Intel technology is what you’ll do with it.

**Update: My CPU average temperatures at idle were 35C, using the same cooling setup on the 4770K I am seeing 32C... Also the Case ambient temps were 30C and now are 28C... Under load the CPU used to hit 69C, it now hits only 60C... This is using the same cooler as was used with the 3770K. So this CPU does appear to have a significant thermal advantage over the 3rd Gen i7 3770K...** This might be important if you are building a micro PC... Keep in mind these temps are at stock levels, I did not overclock my 3770K and have not done it on the 4770K... I bought the K option just in case I decided to do it...
This did change my "windows Experience Index" score from a 7.7 for the CPU (on the 3770K) to a 7.8 (on the 4770K)That is on a scale of 1.0-7.9 It did not change any other ratings on the system...
Determine from that what you will, but my actual usage scenario is below...
Keep in Mind, This CPU uses the 1150 Socket, not the 1155, So you will need a Motherboard that supports The 1150 Socket (but will fit CPU coolers designed for 1155 or 1156 sockets)... So if you plan to upgrade you're probably going to need a new Motherboard as well...
This is my real world experience:
I run Windows 7 with Various media programs installed, These include XBMC, MediaBrowser, Media Center Master, Serviio among a few others...
The major task I use this CPU for is simultaneously serving media to 6-8 TVs and keeping my media collection up to date and organized. Honestly an i7 is a bit overkill for this but I wanted to be sure I could handle even the most intense 1080p 3D trans-coding and streaming with all the TVs running at once. I jumped to the i7 4770K from the 3770K and honestly I see no real world difference...
The media does not seem measurably quicker, nor does it raise the quality (I use a discrete video Card for Graphics processing)...
Overall I think this CPU is awesome, but it is a modest jump from the 3770K and if you are on 3rd gen Intel i7 already I would skip the upgrade and stick with what you have, but if you are coming from a Gen 1-2 i7 the upgrade would be worth it... Spending upwards of $400 or more to upgrade (CPU and Motherboard)for a modest improvement just doesn't seem like a great value, but the significant improvements from the older Gen 1/2 i7's would make it worth the upgrade.
4 Stars for the Modest advancement, had this really made an impact in my home theater setup I could have given it 5 stars.

Just my thoughts,
I was a little unhappy with cooling as I saw with my H100i would sit the temp at 37C for the core when at full load, I looked up and found out this has the same cheap Thermal cement Intel used for the Ivybridge, but upon removing the UHI on the cpu and then replacing the cement with Shin-etsu thermal paste ( which is hard to get... ) the temp fell to a nice 28C when at full throttle.
I have been able to clock this cpu to 5.4GHz with no issue the temp now sits at 45C at full throttle. and oh boy... is it fast. and I recon it can be clocked by a mere 0.4 more but I don't feel comfortable doing so till I have a custom water rig and a better understanding of overclocking.
Great CPU and if you want to know how to remove the UHI from a Haswell or Ivybridge then go to youtube. or buy the ARK series CPU ( haswell with better thermal paste and a teeny bit faster )
Would recommend, even though the price is a little steep, it was worth saving up for it for a little longer. Though I would say that the differences between this and a mid range i5 is not noticeable if you are only gaming. For people who only want to game and general use, save your money, buy and i5 and put the money you saved towards a better GPU as that is what most games run on, the GPU not the CPU so much. Though if you're like me and looking to buy this for renderings 3D models etc, as well as gaming and general use, then look no further.
CPU performance similar to high segment, great value for the energy efficiency performance, even faster hardware video converter (QuickSync), the new HD 4600 integrated graphics with good performance, the process of the 22-nm technology, the new multimedia instructions, a higher performance than the previous generation with the same taktowaniach , unlocked multiplier and the possibility of using BCLK overclocking
Stand forces the new motherboard, the maximum TDP higher than the previous generation, the relatively high price
