Intel Core i7-4790K, 4690K and Pentium G3258 Available For Pre-Order

Its quite surprising to see that the prices listed down by the retail
sites are actually really close to the initial line of Haswell
processors. The three processors would feature an unlocked design, new
packaging components and will be focused towards enthusiasts and
overclockers. The Devil’s Canyon would be aimed towards the high-end
while the Pentium lineup would be aimed towards the casual and budget
minded users who want overclocking support. This gives us a total of
three unlocked processors which are listed down along with their
specifications:

Intel Core i7-4790K

The Core i7-4790K will be the flagship processor of the Haswell
Refresh lineup and the first 22nm consumer CPU to obtain clock frequency
of 4 GHz and a maximum boost clock of 4.4 GHz which is also a first for
Intel. It will feature 4 cores and 8 threads along with a fully
unlocked design which will allow users to overclock the chip past the
limits thanks to the improved thermal design and updated package
materials. The Core i7-4790K will feature a 88W TDP and would come with
the latest HD 4600 graphics chip clocked at 1250 MHz. The pre-order
pricing suggest a retail cost of around $359.99 US.


Intel Core i5-4690K

The Core i5-4690K will be the fastest Core i5 Series processor of the
Haswell Refresh lineup featuring a clock frequency of 3.5 GHz and a
maximum boost clock of 3.9 GHz matching the specs of the Core i7-4770K
in a way. It will feature 4 cores and 4 threads along with a fully
unlocked design which will allow users to overclock the chip past the
limits thanks to the improved thermal design and updated package
materials. The Core i5-4690K will feature a 88W TDP and would come with
the latest HD 4600 graphics chip clocked at 1250 MHz. Pricing is not
known at the moment. The pre-order pricing suggest a retail cost of
around $249.99 US.

Intel Pentium G3258:

The specifications of the Pentium G3258 have been revealed by VR-Zone
and are quite interesting. The Pentium G3258 is a dual core with two
threads featuring a core clock of 3.2 GHz. It doesn’t come with Turbo
Boost tech but will be supported on both 8-Series and 9-Series platforms
unlike Devil’s Canyon which will feature support on just the 9-Series
chipset based Z97 motherboards. Featuring the 22nm Haswell architecture,
the chip comes with 3 MB of L3 cache and a TDP of 53W. The instruction
set includes SSE4.1, SSE 4.2, EM64T and VT-X. The box prices suggest a
retail cost of around $69.99 US – $79.99 US.
