Intel launches Devil’s Canyon processors

Today is a great day for overclockers around the world as Intel Corporation has officially launched its highly expected Devil’s Canyon processors.

As expected there are only two models as of now – the Core i5-4690K and Core i7-4790K. Both chips are unlocked for great overclocking experiences and feature the 22 nm Tri-Gate Haswell architecture. The Core i5-4690K comes with four cores at 3.5 GHz (3.9 GHz in Turbo Mode) and 6 MB of L3 cache but there’s no support for Hyper-Threading technology. The Core i7-4790K is a more special processor, though. It comes with four cores again but all of them support Hyper-Threading technology and thus the i7-4790K can process up to eight threads at once. In addition this is the first Intel Core processor to come out at 4 GHz default clock speed (4.4 GHz Turbo). Add 8 MB of L3 cache and you have a pretty capable processor in your hands. Both Devil’s Canyon chips also feature new and improved thermal paste that helps with overclocking and keeping the CPU core cool.

The Core i5-4690K sells now for USD 250, while the i7-4790K costs USD 350.
