Laboratory-Core i7 4790K The new Intel Series Devil's Canyon Built entirely for overclocking and performance. Does he keep his promises? We checked
A little more than a year ago, a new series of mainstream processors was launched from Intel - the aswell series with Core i7 4770K At its head. This series of processors is designed for the chassis LGA1150 The new Intel And compatible with motherboards that carry chipsets such as H81, B85, H87, Z87, H97 And the leading, Z97.
This series presented a slightly more advanced architecture than what we saw in the generation before it,Ivy-Bridge Although we have not seen a change that appeals to those looking for more performance. The high performance Intel She prefers to leave in her extra seats like LGA2011 and-LGA2011-3. What Intel added to the Hasswell generation is low power consumption at rest and a more robust built-in graphics core.
One of the most repeated claims when launched Core i7 4770K And the aswell family is that despite the feedback it received Intel In the generation Ivy-Bridge, She chose not to use an advanced thermal solution for processors capable of speeding (extension K), Which caused a lot Processors Too hot.
A few months ago she announced Intel On a refreshment to the Hasswell Processors. The refreshment came to us with a processor Core i5 4590 and-Core i3 4150, Which are a small leap forward over their predecessors, under the same price and even less. While for the general public this is good news, the Overclocking Market was waiting for a series Processors Another - series Devil's Canyon. This series is intended for Overclocking, which we will examine today.

Within this series there are a total of two Processors, God-Core i7 4790K and the-Core i5 4690K. Unlike-Core i7 4770K Which comes in a frequency of 3.5 GHz,4790K Comes in a frequency of 4 GHz. God-Core i5 4690K Remains modest compared to4670K Which is replaced with a frequency of 3.5 GHz compared to 3.4 GHz in its predecessor.
The big change comes not only in the frequency but also in the heat transfer from the core. In my work Devil's Canyon The new ones will implement Intel A material with better conductivity than we saw in the first aswell processors, so we expect lower operating temperatures under stress.
