Core i7-4790


Description
The Core i7-4790 is a cpu manufactured by Intel released on May 2014. This model is based on Haswell architecture which is known as fourth-generation core too. It uses 22nm Tri-Gate FinFET (non-planar, 3D) technology. It includes fourth arithmetic logic unit (ALU) and third address generation unit (AGU). This generation is able to run Advanced Vector Extensions 2 (AVX2) instruction set among BMI1, BMI2, ABM and FMA3. At this time Intel used new sockets: LGA 1150 for desktops and BGA1364 for the mobile CPUs.

This model runs at 3600 MHz as base frequency but it can reach up to 4000 Mhz under some conditions with a thermal design power of 84 W. About its cache memory, this CPU has 32+32 kB level 1 cache, 256kB of level 2 cache and 8192kB of level 3 cache.

If we talk about optimized software, in its highest mode (mode III optimized for AVX2), the monothread score is 46226 and the multithread score is 200526 points.

There are some CPU models pretty similar to this one like the Intel Core i5-4570 , the Intel Core i7-4790K and the Intel Core i3-4170 amongst others. To know the complete list and how similar are they, please go down on this page.
