Intel Core i7-4790

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.

Advanced Technologies

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.

Unrivalled Performance

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.

Simply Perfect

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.

Pokročilé technologie

Faster than Ever

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).

Automatic Overclocking

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.

quality CPU overclocking possibilities, plonk I understand the Packaged chiller - looks similar to the one which was used on the Pentium 256 MHz before 15 years ago :)
very "agile" option to overclock the processor (using an additional refrigerating) Bundled cooler on such a processor significantly undersized

great performance if you have software that it knows to exploit my great surprise, acceptably quiet operation even with boxed cooler at low temperature price could be lower version without a cooler box would be super in mononuclear applications typically 32bit office is not much difference in performance compared to much cheaper model G
