Summary: The Intel Core i5-4670K performed good enough for daily tasks, games, pi calculations, CPU benchmarks, and even encoding tests. It is clearly the best choice in its price range but is not worth upgrading to from a Core i5-3570K. It is the best choice for gamers as only few games take advantage of Hyper-Threading, and those that do don't exhibit a large enough performance boost to make the i7 worthwhile.
Pros: Good price, Great performance for its price, Better iGPU performance than HD 4000, Low power consumption under both idle and load, High performance, Includes Hyper-Threading Technology, Better iGPU performance than HD 4000, Good price to performance ratio, Low power consumption under both idle and load, 8 MB cache
Cons: Really high temperature under load, Low overclocking potential, Small performance increase versus Core i5-3570K, High temperature under load, Low overclocking potential
Excerpt: The Core i5-4670K is the 4th-generation Core equivalent to the immensely popular Core i5-3570K, and we think it’s set to be just as popular. For more details on Intel's new Haswell architecture see our Intel Core i7-4770K review . On paper, it would seem that not much has changed since the i5-3570K. The two processors have the same base clock speed of 3.4GHz, Turbo Boost speed of 3.8GHz, four cores, 6MB cache memory and both are a 22nm process.
Conclusion: L'ingresso delle CPU Haswell ha portato ad un incremento prestazionale medio stimabile in circa il 10% (lato CPU) rispetto alla precedente generazione Ivy Bridge, migliorando al contempo l'efficienza energetica, aggiornando alcune ottimizzazioni architetturali e migliorando notevolmente le performance lato GPU.
Pros: Buon rapporto tra prestazioni e prezzo, Elevata efficienza energetica, Ideale per i gamer meno "spendaccioni"
Cons: Potenzialità in overclock letteralmente "castrate" dalla pasta termoconduttiva interna, iGPU ancora lontana dalle soluzioni AMD nel gaming
Excerpt: Στις τέσσερις του μήνα, έγινε η επίσημη αναγγελία των επεξεργαστών Intel Core, τέταρτης γενεάς, με κωδικό όνομα Haswell από την Intel. Αναμενόμενα , είχε προηγηθεί η αναγγελία ενός νέου socket, του LGA1150 και των Intel 8 Series Express Chipsets . Η αρχιτεκτονική των Intel Haswell αποτελεί συνέχεια των Ivy Bridge και είναι ειδικά βελτιστοποιημένη ώστε να εκμεταλλεύεται στο μέγιστο τα οφέλη εξοικονόμησης ενέργειας και απόδοσης που προσέφερε η μετάβαση στα 22nm και τα...
