Nice! Not a bottleneck for GTX 570 11/13/2013
When comparing a Core 2 Quad Q6600 vs this Haswell CPU I was worried it might bottleneck my GPU. Here are the results from one game I use:
Diablo 3 EVGA GTX 770 OC
Q6600 all settings on low/economy (even in NVidia cpanel)
3220 same settings even same windows load and hard drive swapped over
I'd say we have a winner here
In conclusion this dual core is rockin it compared to the old core 2 processors (even quad core)
Very pleased I can build a quality gaming machine with an SSD and a GTX770 with a cheap MSI board with this cpu and have an amazing result over my 3000 dollar gaming machine (that is a few years old.
