No it would be a stupid waste of money as that would be more of a pointless shift to a different current platform than an upgrade. As much as I prefer a 4820kt to a 4770k there is zero point to "upgrade" a current higher end cpu.

According to Logan he only got 2 fps more in gaming and not much more performance in everyday tasks.

It's a downgrade or a side grade more than an upgrade.

If you render day in and out, the extra cores will help. If not, you will be sacrificing IPC performance if you move to X79.

the 4820k is still a quadcore like the 4770k

Hell have the same amount of cores...

If he was coming from like a first gen i7 or maybe a 2500k or earlier I might be able to recommend the upgrade but this is latest gen tech.

Derp. I thought he was talking about the 4930K. My bad.

It's not an upgrade, more of a sidegrade because you're not getting any extra performance. 

 

If you were going for a completely new build and asked the same question, then I think a 4820K will make sense, but if you have a 4770K already, stay with that, it's great.

That would be a big waste of money... Maybe a 4930K or 4960X but that would be much more expensive then a 4820K :) 

 

And why even upgrade from a 4770K? That CPU is more then good for almost anything :)?

No, dont do it. You'd lose ipc, new features of Z87, and only gain some pci express lanes. Plus only two sata 6 ports on intel controller. You would need a pretty rare use case to justify the sidegrade.

From the way it looks, the 4820k uses more power which means more heat and less room for overclocking. Since the performance difference is so small, I think an overclocked 4770k would do just as fine as a 4820k.
