TweakTown Rating: 95%Manufacturer: ASRock

CPU Test - HyperPi 0.99


Version and / or Patch Used: 0.99





CPU Test - AIDA64


Version and / or Patch Used: 1.00.1035BETA






Hyper Pi and AIDA64 performance is strong out of the gate. We can see that our new i7-4790K manages to give a nice little boost in both benchmarks when compared to the previous-generation i7-4770K, which is sitting on our other boards. Overclocking, as you would expect, gives a nice boost in performance.



System Test - PCMark 8


Version and / or Patch Used: 1.04





System Test - MediaEspresso


Version and / or Patch Used: 6.5




While the new i7-4790K doesn't see too much of a performance increase under PCMark 8, you can see that it manages to shave a decent chunk of time off of our encode under MediaEspresso. Overclocking again gives us a nice little performance boost in both benchmarks.
