Devil's Canyon: Intel Core i7-4790K

HotHardware has taken the Intel Core i7-4790K Devil's Canyon around the block a few times to see what it is made of. For comparison purposes, you should read our Devil's Canyon: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly article if you haven't done so already.

The Core i7-4790K’s overclockability is also very good, though it’s wasn’t quite the monster initial rumors had suggested. Don’t get us wrongآ—our sample clocked 10% higher than the Core i7-4770K we tested last year and was stable at 4.8GHz with air-cooling, but "5GHz on air" as was suggested before the launch wasn’t possible with our sample.
