Haswell, Intel's fourth-generation Core processors 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. The processor receives a portion of the new instruction set called Haswell New Instruction and within the GPU comes a new era in the form of a chip Iris.
Haswell represents Intel's fourth-generation of Core processors and an evolutionary step called 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
Haswell utilizes revolutionary 3D transistors, produced using the highly advanced 22nm process. The top-of-the-line technology, brings an increase in performance of at least 10%. The Advanced Power Saving Mode ensures a significantly lower consumption and environmentally friendly operation.
The Intel Core i5-4690K is clocked at 3.5 GHz and must be placed in an 1150 socket. With an increased frequency of 1200 MHz, the Intel HD integrated graphics card perfectly complements the CPU performance. It works great as an office or a casual home PC capable of Full HD video playback. For a full-fledged gaming experience, however, you should pick a graphics card from our wide selection .
The second generation of theTurbo Boost technology boosts the clock frequency up to 3.9 GHz and enables the cores to exceed their stock frequency. The maximum frequency depends on the number of active cores, while the length of the overclocking period depends on the workload and operating environment. The upper frequency limit is determined by reaching threshold values 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.
