The Intel 4th generation Core i7-4790 processor is based on the new 22nm Haswell Microarchitecture for improved CPU performance. Advanced power management innovations help keep power consumption in check. New compute instructions ensure enhanced performance per cycle. Improved Intel integrated graphics enables discrete-level graphics performance. Extract more power from your Haswell core-based processor.

  • newegg Haswell Microarchitecture on 22nm process The new Microarchitecture (code name Haswell) has full integrated voltage regulator (FIVR) for simplified motherboard design. It delivers improved CPU performance and enhanced overclocking over its previous generation Microarchitecture.
  • newegg New 4 generation Intel Core processor family instructions Haswell core-based processors come with Intel Advanced Vector Extensions 2 (Intel AVX2). Intel AVX2 expands integer data to 256-bit SIMD to increase the performance of integer operations. It also offers new capabilities such as Gather and FMA (Fused Multiply-Add). Additional new instructions accelerate key algorithms including parallel extract/deposit, bit manipulation operations and new rotates/multiplies/shift. The AES-NI performance is also improved.
  • newegg Intel processor graphics with Dx11.1 & OPenCL 1.2 Haswell core-based processors offer improved integrated graphics. The integrated graphics supports DirectX 11.1 for optimized graphics performance and OpenGL 3.2 & OpenCL 1.2 for enhanced general purpose computing in GPGPU supported applications. It also features digital display repartition, where digital display ports are wired directly to the CPU and analog displays are handled by a Random Access Memory Digital-to-Analog Converter (RAMDAC) located in the Platform Controller Hub (PCH). It supports up to three independent displays: HDMI, DVI, Display Port, VGA (via Lynx Point).
  • newegg Haswell power management innovation Haswell core-based processors offer advanced power management. It has 20x + improvement from prior generation and is automatic, continuous, fine-grained, transparent to well written SW.
  • newegg Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 More intelligent, energy-efficient, and dynamic than previous generation, Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 gives you accelerating performance when you need it. It delivers an even greater automatic speed increase by allowing processor cores to run faster than the base operating frequency for demanding applications if the processor is operating below power, current, and temperature specification limits.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product - I did not like the No price Match -

Pros: This cpu works great.

Cons: Micro Center which is a major supplier has this same cpu 30.00$ cheaper And New egg would not match the price because they said they are not.

Other Thoughts: Come On Guys / Gals if you say you have price match - Then match the price already.
To New Eggs Credit everything was and is a good price.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Processor

Pros: This processor is great! It handles all the games I play on ultra without issue. I have it paired with a MSI Z97 Gaming 7 board & GTX 970 SC GPU. I've never used the stock fan, I kept as a back up. I build computers occasionally and I never use the stock fan with any processor, always kept as backup. I have a Cooler Master Hyper T4 cooler on the processor. I've used it every PC I've built and love it. Price ranges from $22-$30 usually but well worth it. At idle the temp is around 30-32 degrees Celsius and when stressed sits at about 48-50 degrees Celsius. The stock fan will do the job but you'll be about 10 degrees warmer all around. Just my opinion, if you're gonna spend the money on an I7 you should spend a little more to protect it.

Cons: Only con is it is a little pricey but it's worth it.

4 out of 5 eggsFallout 4 Recommended CPU

Pros: * You can recycle the poor HSF Intel bundles with this and get a couple bucks for the aluminum and copper.
* If you disable Hyperthreading you can game on this decently.
* Runs cool (36C idle, 40C Prime95 64-bit for 3 hours) compared to Intel's older offerings (The i3 2100 for example idles at 62C and peaks at 96C normal load).

Cons: * Very pricey $$$ for a quad core when only used for gaming.
* You'll always want to purchase a 3rd party air cooler, one from a company that actually cares about their product performance.

Other Thoughts: For how much Intel is charging for this, I would expect a great deal more from the HSF. I'd say overall value of the one included is about as much as you can get from a metal recycling facility for it.

5 out of 5 eggsDid not work on my board.

Pros: I have read reviews that praise this CPU and all of my friends say it is great. I assume they are all correct.

Cons: The CPU did not work on my older (2013) ASUS H87M-PLUS board.

Other Thoughts: The CPU did not work on my older (2013) ASUS H87M-PLUS board after being told by ASUS and everyone else that it would. I purchased a 4770 and it works great. Just wanted to let older 1150 socket owner know.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: FAST

Cons: Nothing

Other Thoughts: Built a computer for my Father. He doesn't game or anything like that but wanted something that would last him 5 years. His old computer was a 7 year old dual core so this thing is super fast for him.

4 out of 5 eggsFan DOA

Pros: The CPU itself is awesome, I am very happy with it.

Cons: The CPU fan wasn't working on arrival. I wasn't able to just replace the fan as the fan itself holds the heatsink in place. I emailed newegg customer support twice and it took them approximately 3 weeks to get back to me. In the meantime I had to order an aftermarket cooler because I couldn't wait 3 weeks for a response and longer for a replacement as I had to use my computer for school. For the price of the CPU it seems that the fan is pretty weak, one of my buddies has the stock setup and his runs significantly hotter than my aftermarket air cooled set up.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat CPU

Pros: I use this CPU everyday in my main PC. I have never had a problem with this CPU. It performs very well at all times.

Cons: No cons that i can find other then its expensive. The I5 4690 can easily handle any games that are out right now as of December 4th 2015 so i would pick it up instead if i could go back in time.

Cons: nothing can say for Intel products

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent CPU

Pros: + Great performance for a good price
+ Runs pretty cool, good power consumption
+ The stock cooling is impressive for what it is. The fan runs VERY quiet - completely noiseless on idle, barely audible even on high load.

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: I was hesitating between this, an i5, and the 4790K. Ended up going middle-of-the-road and I have no regrets. My system runs visibly faster compared to a friend who is using exactly the same everything else and an i5, and exactly as fast as another friend using the 4790K without overclocking. Perfect performance/price ratio with this one. And I have to once again stress the quality of the stock cooling - gone are the days when Intel stock coolers barely kept the temperature in check and were as noisy as a jet engine. This one is barely audible and even then I've yet to see the core temperature go above 40C (it's at 29C on idle!).
