Intel Core i7-4790K Devil’s Canyon CPU Review



A little over a year ago, Intel introduced their new line of CPU’s under the Haswell codename. As the successor to the Ivy-Bridge architecture Intel’s new chip design looks to optimize power savings and performance benefits, taking advantage of the 22nm node instead of focusing on overall performance. With the release of the i5-4670K and i7-4770K, enthusiasts seemed to be disappointed over the lack of raw power the CPU’s had to offer, and the small amount of headroom for overclocking. To much concern, it seems as though this is becoming a trend. Over the last few generations, there seems to be less of an increase in overall power and performance with each new release that comes out. Haswell was no exception to the trend, offering only a 5-8% increase over other parts. With the release of the Devil’s Canyon, Intel looks to address all of these concerns.
