Intel's 4th gen processor codename: Haswell offers superior performance over the previous generation Ivybridge by up to 10% clock for clock. This astounding performance boost results in performance improvements in multi-tasking, encoding, gaming and multithreaded applications. Intel's 4th generation processor has improved PCI-Lane 3.0 bandwidth which helps further boost performance of latest generation 3 graphics cards for the ultimate gaming experience.
For overclocking enthusiasts, Intel's 4th gen CPU has improved memory overclocking support, with up to and beyond 3000MHz possible with the very best memory kits. Memory bandwidth is critically important to Haswell compared to previous generations. High frequency memory performance significantly improves encoding, gaming and benchmarking tasks.
The biggest leap in Intel's Haswell processor is the on-board graphics which is now up to 2.6x faster than previous HD4000 found in the Ivybridge CPU. What this means is these latest processors can actually play the latest games in HD with low/medium settings applied. Of course if you want to experience True HD gaming at maximum details then a dedicated graphics card is still a must.

I run this chip on a MSI z87 G45 gaming motherboard, with a couple of SSD's and a EVGA gtx 780ti graphics card. Read morePublished 2 months ago by S_by_SW
This is a great processor. It handles the latest games barely working up a sweat and it does quite complex spreadsheet calculations in about half the time of my work PC. Read morePublished 3 months ago by JamieF
Id still go back and get an I5 because I really don't use this that much but it does help in EU4. Then again the bragging rights might just be worth it.Published 4 months ago by Luc
