The editors liked

  • Fastest Intel QuadCore Ever
  • New Packaging Materials and TIM
  • Same Price as 4770K
  • Good Overclocker
  • Incredibly fast
  • New TIM (Thermal Interface Material)
  • Cool temps
  • More headroom for overclocking
  • Significantly faster than 2013's top Haswell chip
  • The Core i7-4770K
  • At the same price
  • Faster than the Core i7-4770K. Significantly lower operating temperature. Adds features that its predecessor lacked.
  • Stock 4GHz with Turbo up to 4.4 GHz
  • Idle temps are very low
  • Higher factory speeds
  • Same price tag like 4770K
  • Marginally better temps
  • Compatibility with older Z87 boards
  • Added speed
  • Better thermal interface material
  • Performance slightly better than the Intel Core i74770K when overclocked
  • 500 MHz boost over the Core i7-4770K
  • Improved TIM and added capacitors
  • Priced the same as the Core i7-4770K
  • The fastest Intel quad-core processor to date
  • Decent performance
  • Low power consumption
  • Multi-display-capable iGPU
  • Clock boost for the same price
  • Intel XMP supported
  • Compatible with both Z87 and Z97 motherboards
  • Though it might require a BIOS update
  • The Core i74790K is clocked 14% higher than the i74770K while running a degree or two cooler and costing the same at $339.
  • Good performance
  • Overclocks well
  • Z170 platform offers new features.

The editors didn't like

  • Not A New Architecture
  • Not Quite The Overclocking Beast It Was Made Out To Be
  • None
  • Will likely require a new motherboard
  • Despite using the same LGA 1150 socket
  • Only moderate overclocking potential with our review chip
  • Despite Intel's promises
  • Overclocking headroom is very limited
  • Retail CPU doesn't come with much needed higher performance heatsink
  • Limited overclocking due to heat
  • Same overclocking potential
  • Compared to the price gap
  • The speed difference to the Intel Core i74770K is not very noticeable
  • Overclocking seems to be more sensitive to BCLK adjustments
  • Overclocking could be better
  • No overclocking
  • Nothing really "new"
  • Integrated GPU limited in 3D gaming performance
  • The chip's overclocking performance isn't as strong as Intel led us to believe
  • Certainly not enough to upgrade from the 4770K.
  • Not much faster than Haswell
  • Still quadcore
  • No heatsink included
  • Needs new motherboard and RAM

  • The Intel i7-9700K received ample criticism at unveil for being the first “gaming,” S-class i7 in recent history to drop hyperthreading. The move was accompanied by an increase in physical core count to 8C, but followed the previous move from 4C/8T to 6C/...

  • By name and by marketing, the i5 CPU is most comparable to the R5 CPUs. The R5 2600's current $160 price-point makes it a less direct comparison, and the 2600X, which would perform about where an overclocked 2600 performs, is about $220. This is also che...

  • So I think most people will admit that AMD has had a lot of wins this year with all of the Ryzen launches. As I found out in our 1700v7700K coverage the 7700K was still a great performing CPU, especially when looking at gaming performance. But with ju...

  • The AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X and Threadripper 1920X are very impressive processors that did extremely well in content creation benchmarks that take advantage of having a 16-core, 32-thread processor in the system. The good news is a good number of app...

  • Well, the Ryzen 7 launch has a surprising amount of excitement and drama mixed together with the impressive numbers but with memory issues and game performance causing very polarized opinions on social media and on websites like Reddit. AMD fans even...

  • Abstract:  Earlier this week I posted some interesting Linux graphics benchmarks comparing the open-source Mesa/Gallium3D drivers for the Iris Pro 6200 Graphics on the Intel Core i7-5775C "Broadwell" CPU compared to several discrete graphics cards. Those results wer...

  • A regular 4790K will cost you roughly 320 EUR, say 339 USD. A binned 4.8 MHz model is in the 375 USD range and the 5 GHz models will pass 400 USD. As such a binned processor is more expensive, but does come with that very nice guaranteed clock frequency....

  • Desktop users who run computations-heavy applications are always glad to see faster processors but Intel's latest CPUs have only provided a performance gain of 5 to 10% with each new generation which was ensured by minor microarchitecture optimizations. T...
