Haswell, Intel’s Fourth-Gen Core Architecture Core i7-4770K

Intel has introduced the fourth generation of the processor Core i-series "Haswell". Is it have everything is new? Not at all! Tested the Core i7-4770K "Haswell" has as its predecessor 3770K from the "Ivy Bridge" series four cores on board, working with exactly the same clock: 3.5 GHz. It can be utilize Turbo Boost technology, a single core with 3.9 GHz clock - such as a grueling task as you shrink a video for Smartphones. Haswell Intel processors manufactured with advanced 22-nanometer process. Advantage: In a small area, many circuits (transistors) can be accommodated. Haswell has a whopping 1.4 billion transistors on a very small area of only 177 square millimeters. The operating system pretends the 4770K as its predecessor by Hyper-Threading to eight cores.

Windows can allocate parallel programs running on multiple (virtual) cores. The cache (L3) is very generous with eight megabytes. A genuine innovation: Intel has incorporated the voltage converter into the Haswell CPU. In the previous models sat still on the motherboard. Advantage: for example, even in energy losses it can be contained and the processor is operating efficiently. Intel launches Haswell recently with a new processor generation. That's for normal desktop PCs, but also Laptops, Ultrabooks and tablet PCs Convertibles. Anyone who wants to upgrade his PC with a Haswell CPU needs a new main board: The 4770K has now 1150 pins at the bottom. The work rate of 4770K is only slightly higher than that of 3770K. For this, the Haswell CPU is playing 27 percent more nimble than the previous model. The testers were certainly not surprised that the Haswell Office and internet tasks completed only minimally faster than the older 3770K.

 The performance advantage laid with the Haswell processor only six percent. Instead of the lame HD4000 graphics chip, the newly developed HD4600 is used. Although it is good for games but still demanding games like "Battlefield 3", but enough for a smooth playback of titles such as "The Sims 3". In the test, it delivered almost 12 frames per second - about 27 percent more than the 3770K. New generation of processors, Is it less power consumption? No! The Haswell even approved in the test a little more juice than its predecessor 3770K. The cause: If the stronger graphics chip called the current processor, it needs more energy. In pure mode, the Office Haswell CPU is significantly more economical than the Ivy Bridge processor: instead of 38.30 watts, there were only 32.8 watts - nearly 20 percent less!
