4770k vs 4790k

#1Sergei_DukanovPosted 6/6/2014 3:27:45 PM
For all you intel lovers out there, what is the biggest difference from these two CPU's. I know the non k version is already been released for the 4790. Is there an improvement from choosing one over the other? All I could take so far is an increase in base clock frequencies. Can someone show me the benefit of the 4790k or non k over the 4770k and non k.

The i5-4670K and i7-4790K are supposed to feature design improvements for thermal dissipation, i.e. they'll overclock better because they don't suffer from the stupid design all Intel CPUs have suffered from since Ivy Bridge. That's why those two specifically are known as Devil's Canyon, whereas all the other newer CPUs are just the Haswell Refresh. Those two are still part of the refresh but their design should effect lower temperatures and better overclocks.

4790k also ships at 4ghz with 4.4ghz turbo in addition to what shub said. Apparently only 1 in 5 haswell parts was able to break 4.2ghz without delidding/high end loops so it looks like Devil's Canyon should be a massive improvement over that.

Most Haswell chips could easily reach 4.2GHZ with a Hyper 212+. It's only the 4.5+GHz range where it gets difficult.

And where do the non K's fall into this spectrum? My cousin needs a new PC and I was just gonna give him my 8350 and grab a 4790 or a 4790k. Since my rts's are lagging a bit.

That's pretty much what I said. 4.2 was typical on standard setups, higher took either luck, delidding, or high end cooling whereas I'll be pretty surprised if 90% of DC parts can't manage 4.4 on standard setups.

E: The non-k 4790 ships at 3.6 with 4.0 turboboost. Respectable but personally I need(want) as much single threaded performance as I can get for modded minecraft so the 4790k would be a no-brainer for me.

I just have to wait until the 25 to grab one then. And I was about to go and look for a 4930k. This should have me around $400 that I can put towards something else.
