Intel Launches Devils Canyon i7 4790K, i5 4690K and Pentium G3258

Intel Launches Devils Canyon i7 4970K, i5 4690K and Pentium G3258

Intel has just unveiled its Unlocked 4th Generation CPUs for the Z97 chipset dubbed Devil’s Canyon. The Intel Core i5 4690K and Core i7 4790K both feature enhanced clock speeds and improved thermal interface materials. For the iGPU, both processors use the Intel HD Graphics 4600 integrated GPU. In addition to the Core i5 and Core i7, Intel has also unveiled its Pentium Anniversary CPU, the Pentium G3258.

The Core i7 4790K is a 4-core, 8-thread CPU with a 4 GHz base clock that is capable of Turbo Boosting to 4.4 Ghz depending on the current load. It also has an 8M Cache.

The Core i5 4690K is a 4-core, 4-thread CPU that has a base clock of 3.5 GHz and is capable of Turbo Boosting to 3.9 GHz under load. Unlike the i7 4790K’s 8M Cache, the i5 4690K has only 6M.

The Intel Pentium G3258 is a dual-core chip that will have a 3M Cache and a 3.2 GHz clock speed. Although the Pentium part doesn’t feature Turbo Boost, it is an unlocked CPU so you should be able to overclock it in a Z97 motherboard. For budget minded buyers, the Pentium G3258 might just be your best option.


All of the chips (Core i5 4690K, Core i7 4790K and Pentium G3258) are built upon the Haswell 22nm architecture. With the previous heat issues associated with Haswell, the improved thermal interface material should help give the new CPUs that extra push to hit 5 GHz. Lastly, with Broadwell slated to be released next year, this very well may be the last Haswell parts we see from Intel.
