After last month's underwhelming Haswell refresh, Intel says overclockers can rejoice over the newest revision of its fourth-generation Core processors, codenamed Devil's Canyon, which actually promises a few improvements on the CPU side of things including updated packaging materials, more capacitors for smoother power deliver, as well as a 'Next Generation Polymer Thermal Interface Material' (NGPTIM).

The Core i7-4790K's core frequency has been increased over its predecessor by almost 15% from 3.5GHz to 4.0GHz (up to 4.4GHz Turbo Boost). Also, in what can only come as great news, the Core i7-4790K will be available for the same $339 as the 4770K.
