Intel presents three new Haswell chips

US chip giant Intel has been rather active lately – the company presented a number of Haswell Refresh chips and then its 9th generation of chipsets for the LGA 1150 platform. It appears that this is not final as Intel has now presented three new Haswell-based processors that are part of the company’s Devil’s Canyon family of special processors.

The champion in the pack is undoubtedly the Core i7-4790K. This is a very special processor as it is the first Intel chip ever to run at a speed of 4 GHz. The chip reaches the respectable speed of 4.4 GHz in Turbo mode and comes with four processing cores, Hyper-Threading technology, Intel HD4600 graphics and 8 MB of L3 cache. It will sell for USD 370.

The other two processors include the Core i5-4690K that comes with four processing cores but lacks Hyper-Threading technology and has 6 MB of L3 cache. The chip runs at 3.5 GHz with 3.9 GHz Turbo Boost speed. This one will set you back with USD 250.

The Pentium G3258 is the last representative of this special club. It is a dual-core processor on the Haswell architecture and runs at 3.2 GHz. The chip does not have Hyper-Threading and Turbo Boost but it is an unlocked chip thanks to the 20th anniversary of the launching of the first Intel Pentium processor. You also get 3 MB of L3 cache and a sell price of USD 80.
