Core i7 Processor 4790K: The overclocking that everyone was waiting for

Laboratory-Core i7 4790K The new 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 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 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 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 Too hot.
A few months ago she announced 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 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 , 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 A material with better conductivity than we saw in the first aswell processors, so we expect lower operating temperatures under stress.

  1. What is the lowest voltage during rest
    For some reason they like to reach high frequencies
    I'm actually always interested in how low the voltage and temperature can go with the processor and still run things

    I see that according to the tests you have 30 degrees at rest similar to my I5 now
    But probably this 30 depends on the room temperature, which is the way it is on 30 this summer at the moment

    The resting work voltage in the I5 4670K is in the 0.700 area that the frequency drops even to 800 MHZ
    I wonder how low the voltage drops on this new chip and maybe in winter it will run at 15 degrees or something normal working temperature

    4670K in winter also drops to 22-25 degrees in the vicinity of Windus

  2. Significant disadvantage of compatibility problem
    It is unclear from the article whether the new processors fit the old boards in the 1150 bracket. This may be the reason for the processor pricing - the need to upgrade the motherboard too if you want to upgrade the processor.

  3. I'd like to see something more
    4770K After dismantling the heat diffuser and naming a normal ointment with 4790K…

  4. To 3
    Yes, Intel's new processors fit into tablets in the LGA1150 bracket, did not change the bracket.

  5. To 4
    Probably, it would have been the same, the same results. After all, there is no change electronically.

  6. Cornation Flower has a grave error and lack of knowledge
    First of all, where is this misinformation?

    Secondly, the controllers have already moved on to the beginning of Intel's i series for your attention ... which has been with us for several years.

    To sum it up, the only new thing about 4790K is the heat transfer, etc. that's it.
    Nothing new and the new chipset brings nothing new with it except some innovations in SSD and that's it.

    Please check facts for next time.

  7. The memory controllers were on the board
    It may well be a mistake that comes from a lack of knowledge.
    But is it not true that the memory controllers were on the board and are now on the chip itself?

  8. Graphics Card
    For those who use a video card, does the graphics core add something to the processing power or is it just unnecessary in this configuration?

  9. The processor is limited in memory speed
    When examining the processor, the memory speed must also be taken into account:
    Because the motherboard of the test supports the speed of:
    3100(O.C.)/3000(O.C.)/2933(O.C.)/2800(O.C.)/2666(O.C.)/2600(O.C.)/2500(O.C.)/2400(O.C.)/2200(O.C.)/2133(O.C.)/2000(O.C.)/1866(O.C.)/1800(O.C.)/1600/1333

    It was worth comparing using faster memories at least 1866 (or the maximum supported by both processors)

    The higher the memory speed, the faster the processor can finish computing operations. Only then can you really see the difference in performance between the two processors.

    Also note that this board does not support quad channel, so even here the processors do not display their maximum capabilities. Thus the poor result of Winrar

    Board with support on quad channel
    Faster memories
    The difference will be much more significant

  10. To David
    Once you have an external video card, the built-in graphics core is automatically canceled, and from then on, the external video card is backed up and detected by the motherboard.
