Intel i7-4790K Review

PC Mark

Things are extremely close in PC Mark. Vantage gives the edge to the i7-4790K, and PC Mark 7 just shades towards the i7-4770K. Considering the clock speed difference between the two CPUs, that's a very good level of performance available from the Haswell refresh. The extra stock speed really shows its colours here too, with a bog standard i7-4790K running the big overclocks close.

Nice review thanks.

If I could get the same 4.80GHZ overclock with a 4970K that I have with my 4770K then I would definitely buy one but I'm not lucky with the silicon lottery Quote

Very nice review Tom. Thank you for the time in trying to enlighten us about the differences from the 4770k cpu. I probably will get one for the Maximus VII Hero rig that I hope to finish in the next couple of months. The 4770k I have now is not a strong one from what I can see. I might get a better entry in the lottery with a new chip. I am also hoping you go back to the VII Hero board with the DC 4790k chip. Your review of that board was what made me buy it on day 1 when it came available. I really hope the combo with the DC chip will be a "Epic Win"

Thank You Again!
