One needs to be careful when saying newer is better. Some generations of Intel processors have been focused on the laptop market via lower power, not higher performance, which seems to have plateaued anyway.

The other difference is overclocking potential.

At any rate, intel's lineup is all over the map, so do your homework before upgrading. The other big reason to upgrade is to take advantage of improvements in chipsets and MB, such as M2 support.

The biggest issue with the I7-3770k (I had one and went to a 6700k) is socket. When my motherboard died, I would up building almost a complete new computer due to this. The 3770k uses socket 1155, the 6700k uses 1151. I could have bought another 1155 board, but there was really no point. I also went to DDR4, which you don't get with 1155. Again, personal choice.

Real world? Yeah, my 6700k is a hell of a lot faster than my 3770k was, but that's also partially due to the 32gb of ram compared to 16, the 2TB SSD compared to the Raid-5 array I had and the GTX 1070 I added.
