Intel Corporation is the world's largest maker of semiconductor circuits. Its success and innovation produce sweet fruit in the form of a new generation processor architecture Intel Haswell Refresh. It is the fourth generation of Core and evolutionary step called Tock. Unlike Tick (Ivy Bridge) is not just about fine-tuning the production process and minor modifications, but a very significant innovation in the design of the entire core. Processor portion receives a new instruction set called Haswell New Instruction and within the GPU comes a new era in the form of a chip Iris.
Intel Corporation is the world's largest manufacturer of semiconductor circuits. Its success and innovation produce sweet fruit in the form of Intel Haswell Refresh, a new generation processor architecture.
The fourth-generation of Core processors represent an evolutionary step named “Tock”. Unlike Tick (Ivy Bridge), it does not consist merely in fine-tuning the production process and adding minor modifications, but brings very significant innovations in the entire core design. The processor features the Haswell New Instruction set, while the GPU core ushers in a new era with an Iris chip.
The Intel Core i5-4690 Quad-core is clocked at 3.5 GHz and must be placed in the new 1150 socket. Intel HD Graphics 4600 with an increased frequency of 1200 MHz perfectly complements the CPU. Thanks to performance increase of up to 100%, it leaves older chips far behind. With Direct3D 11.1 support, it can easily run latest games as well.
The second generation of the Turbo Boost technology will increase the frequency to 3.7 GHz, allowing all cores to exceed their base frequency. The maximum frequency depends on the number of active cores, and the length of the overclocked period depends on the workload and operating environment. The upper frequency limit is determined by reaching the limit of the four indicators (number of active cores, electric current drawn, power consumption, CPU temperature).
The processor is supplied with a stock cooler with sufficient performance for a trouble-free operation of the CPU. However, we strongly recommend that you choose one of the more advanced aftermarket coolers from our selection. The result will be lower temperatures and noise level in the long run.
Intel Corporation is the world's largest manufacturer of semiconductor circuits and related components, powering a large share of the world's computers, devices, and machines with their powerful and reliable processors. One of the most established and successful companies to come out of Silicon Valley, they've been a driver of the technology revolution ever since.
Intel employs over 96,500 employees worldwide and is one of the biggest and richest companies in the world. For decades, their slogan was "Intel Inside"; however, they replaced with the more dynamic "Leap ahead" in 2005, signalling a renewed commitment to innovation.
