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.

New I7 CPU. 3/21/2020 8:04:45 PM

Pros: Arrived on time.

Cons: Dead on Arrival.

Overall Review: Got new CPU for my old computer. I have a Z87-PRO motherboard. I spent the majority of the week trying to figure out why it wasn't working. Double checked the specs of the CPU and Motherboard, checked the compatible CPUs for my motherboard, Updated bios, reset CMOS, replaced PSU (and spare hard drive due to a melted sata power connector), checked for bent pins, used old CPU to ensure the computer still worked, found no faults in any of the other parts. Not sure how to, or if i can, get a replacement for this CPU.

It's been great. 12/30/2019 3:50:12 PM

Pros: Almost 5 years later, this CPU has served me wonderfully.
I am only here now to write this review, because I'm finally replacing this guy, but he still works just fine, and fast, but it's time.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: I would recommend this product, although I don't think many people will be picking this one up any time soon because it's a generation gap behind and is not compatible with DDR4.

Intel i7-4790 11/23/2019 6:11:36 PM

Overall Review: I received what I ordered in a reasonable amount of time. Tracking information was sub-par as it never actually updated after going to "Shipment Information Received" two days after ordering. I received it within a week of submitting my order. Tracking info still doesn't say it has been delivered and it's been here for a few days already.

As for the CPU, I had the old one out and the new one in with the system up and running within a half hour. Took longer to blow out the dust at the beginning than it did to actually pop off the cooler, swap CPUs, add new paste, and reinstall the cooler. Seems to be working fine a couple hours after install. Ran some higher loading programs and it handled them fine.

5 years later and still handling well 11/12/2019 9:57:13 AM

Overall Review: At the time this was priced well for what I could get... dollar/perforance. Right now, I'm not sure the price is worth it since Radeon cpu have come a ways since 2014. But mine as lasts well and still upholds games decently. Bought it with a gtx 970 and have no problem getting 60 fps on medium high settings with AA.. a few I can push maxed out yet.

2 Years and still going strong 9/19/2017 11:47:32 AM

Pros: I can't believe I've owned this chip for almost 2 years. This was my first Intel chip in many years and what a great return I've managed to get from it. This thing is fast and has been flawless in performance and operation. You truly get what you pay for. There is no question I will be able to get another year or two out of this CPU before I need to upgrade.

This card takes everything like a CHAMP (even more than Glenn when he met Lucille). Burn.

Cons: Stock heatsink works fine, you don't NEED to buy a separate one, but I did anyways (Hyper TX-3). I wish Intel would beef up their heatsinks but that shouldn't take away from the performance and durability of the CPU itself.
