Starting off with PCMark 7, you can see there's very little difference between the upcoming i7 4790 and the i7 4770K.

Looking above at HyperPi performance, you can see that the i7 4770K actually comes out ahead by a solid minute here. Let's see what happens as we move forward.

AIDA64

Version and / or Patch Used: 1.00.1035BETA

When it comes to AIDA64, you can see the latest version scores differently. This was one of the main reasons we tested the i7 4770K on our Z97 motherboard. Looking above, you can see that the performance of the i7 4790 is quite significant.

When it comes to memory performance, you can see that we're slightly up on the i7 4790. Memory performance is something we'll look into more over the coming weeks.
