According to leaked information from a well-known Chinese source, Intel’s upcoming ‘Devil’s Canyon’ desktop processor will have default clock speed of 4GHz. What also should be noted that a user can easily bump up to 5GHz by just using air-cooling alone.
The Devil Canyon SKU modelled i5-4690K and i7-4790K specs are as follows:
- Core i5-4690K: Base freq 3.5GHz, Turbo Boost freq 3.9GHz, 4 cores/4 threads, 6MB cache, TDP of 88W
- Core i7-4790K: Base freq 4.0GHz, Turbo Boost freq 4.4GHz, 4 cores/8 threads, 8MB cache, TDP of 88W
As pointed out previously, Intel revealed that it will be using improved thermal interface material and updating packaging materials which will be supported by Intel 9 series chipsets. It was also stated that Intel is very excited about Devil’s Canyon as the chipmaker believes that it will be a hit among gamers and hardware enthusiasts.
It is expected that Intel will be showing off its 20th anniversary commemorative Pentium G3258 processor in Computex this year.
