Computex 2014 - We've been hearing about Intel's "Devil's Canyon" CPU for a while now, the Core i7-4790K processor. What's so special about the new Core i7-4790K is that its Intel's first Core i7 processor that has a stock clock speed of 4GHz. But don't worry, we still have Hyper-Threading here.




The max Turbo Boost speed on the Devil's Canyon-based Core i7 processor is a huge 4.8GHz, so we should expect to see some truly massive overclocks in the coming weeks and months. Better yet, we should see some world records broken in multiple benchmarks from the world's best overclockers. The new Core i7-4790K is still based on Intel's LGA 1150 socket, has a max TDP of 88W, and was running at 1.39V when we saw it today in the halls of Nangang.
