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 onboard graphics which is now up to 2.6x faster than previous HD4600 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.

What can I say. Other than on paper, I now realise I have had more computers than I have relationships ! :$
Which may not say a lot for my chatup lines, but hopefully it will my coding ones!
Moore's law is still upheld, in principle. And, as long as we [mankind] don't annihilate each other, the future can only be bright. This is a great processor, capable of computations I only dreamed about as a boy. (I'm 35)
I am from the home PC generation. I used to study my 'BASIC' coding book for my spectrum on Saturday afternoons when I was 7. I now develop software for various companies as well as motion graphics.
I'm not keen on the K versions. I don't OC. It worked straight out of the box with a new Gigabyte Z97-UD5H-BK. I swapped the stock cooler for a BeQuiet Dark Rock 3, and runs cool and extremely quiet.
100% recommended for staggering stability and performance for professionals and enthusiasts alike.
Very pleased I paid the small price difference to buy it instead of iCore 5.
I used to close games to ensure I wouldn't have any FPS issues when playing other games, now I can have any game open and running in the background without stressing about the CPU not being able to handle it.
It's perfect, can handle having open anything you need without worries or concern, would recommend.
This is a great processor all round delivering great power with reasonable power consumption.
I personally recommend this i7 if you are a pc gamer or/and a firstish time editor with rendering performance being great for the price and socket.
Good temperature distribution
Very reasonable price
Very powerful for the price
Can not overclock and that's about it for cons that I can think of off the top of my head.
Great performance for a non overclocked processor. I recommend it for gamers and editors that don't have the budget to upgrade to skylake and is all round a good addition to most systems.

Good processor and it works great but is a bit outdated looking to the future get a 1151 socket I7 as it will be easier to upgrade your system at a later datePublished 4 months ago by HB
