Trying to get samples from Intel but the marketing company that handles Intel’s affairs says there won’t be a review program for these new CPUs :S

Honestly the new TIM is the only exciting part. I never liked the idea of delidding my CPU with a brick and vice.

4Ghz... on all four cores" I am sorry but when did 4Ghz seem like a big enough deal to put it in large text.... 4Ghz is nothing these days its the norm what would be nice is either 5Ghz or a 4930K equlivent with 8Cores 16Threads

I am running Skyrim (with lots of mods) using about 60% of an i5 4670K (not over clocked). If I get one of these new processors, Skyrim will probably use about 50% of it.

I don't see anything exciting or worth mentioning here. The 4790k looks like a factory overclocked version of the 4770k.

Yes, they now need 8-core running a 5GHz. 8-core needs to be the new quad-core. Then we need to be looking a 16-core next year. This is unless they start adding a lot more on the Compute Unit side of things.

You might get one, if you are looking to splash out a few thousand $ on a new PC, with 2 x high-end graphics cards, 4K monitor, 4 x SSD etc.

I really have alot of interest in these chips but I can't help but feel this is what Haswell should have been more than anything. The chip I think is cool is the Pentium anniversary, I may just pick one of these bad boys up and a decent motherboard to see how far I can push it.

Can't wait to get my hands on a 4790k, Asus Maximus 7 Formula and an Ares 3 and put them all under a open loop. My wallet will be empty soon.

I had been all excited for this until I saw: http://ark.intel.com/compare/80807,63698

I feel as if I would actually be downgrading my chip. the new MB features would be cool and I would be getting pcie 3.0 instead of 2.0 but really 2.0 is quite fast enough for more than most will need.

*sigh* intel.
I really dont understand why Intel is putting Intel graphics into the 4790K... I can guarantee that 99% of people who buy this chip wont use integrated graphics...

I must be one of those 1% you mention. I have a 4670K in my current build and don't yet have a graphics card. However it is my intention to purchase a graphics card when I can persuade the little woman we can afford it.

"DDR3-1600 memory support" this had better be the slowest ram speed it supports.......ddr3 1600 is pretty damn slow .........

I see that you are a cautious person as you are posting as guest! Surely you know that hair cuts and makeup are necessary expenses and that women die if they buy cheap products. I speak as a person who spends less on hair cuts in a year that my wife spends in a single visit to the hairdressers.

Holy hell. I guess I'm waiting a few generations (or until DDR4 comes out) to even think about thinking about buying a new processor.
