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 Core processors and an 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.
Intel Corporation is the world's largest manufacturer of semiconductor circuits. Its success and innovation have brought a new generation of CPU architecture – Intel Haswell Refresh. The fourth generation of Core processors represents an evolutionary step named Tock. Unlike Tick (Ivy Bridge), it does not bring only minor changes along with enhancements of the production process, but very significant innovations in the entire core design. The processor gets the Haswell New Instruction set and the Iris chip ushers in a new era of GPUs.
Haswell relies on revolutionary 3D transistors and utilizes the highly advanced 22nm production technology. The current technology is reaching its limits, but using 3D transistors leads to more than a 10% performance boost. The Advanced Power Saving mode ensures significantly lower power consumption and environmentally friendly operation.
The actual Intel Core i7-4790 Quad-core ticks at a frequency of 3.6 GHz and must be established in the new socket labeled Socket 1150 processor perfectly complements HD Graphics 4600, which increased its frequency to 1200 MHz nice. Initial chips leaves far behind and provide performance gains of up to 100%. With support for Direct3D 11.1 famously serve the demanding computer games.
The Intel Core i7-4790 is clocked at 3.6 GHz and must be placed in an 1150 socket. With an increased frequency of 1200 MHz, the Intel HD Graphics 4600 integrated graphics chip perfectly complements the performance of the CPU. Thanks to a performance increase of up to 100%, it leaves older chips far behind. With support for Direct3D 11.1, it can easily run demanding games as well.
The second generation of the Turbo Boost technology boosts the frequency up to 4.0 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).
If the processor operates below these limits and the system requires higher performance, overclocking begins automatically without requiring any user intervention. By utilizing advanced algorithms, the system is absolutely safe, even if it entails short-term operation above the nominal thermal design power (TDP). Overclocking, of course, occurs to a lower extent during the utilization of three or four cores and a reaches a maximum when one or two cores are used.
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.
