We review the Core i7 3770K and 3750 Ivy bridge processors alongside Intel's Z77 DZ77GA-70K motherboard. Will Ivy Bridge be the processor series everything you expected? Performance wise the all new Ivy Bridge series is not going to stun and shock like the Sandy Bridge series did. In fact clock for clock it is all roughly the very same, with a +0.8% performance offset in favor of Ivy Bridge.
