The British Computing.co.uk website reported that, Intel will within weeks launch the first 4GHz processor. This means that Intel and AMD will re-open on CPU frequency of war after 10 years.
CPU frequency War: Intel will push the first 4GHz processor
The new Core i7-4790K “Devil’s Canyon” processor will be the first of 3 LGA1150 form-factor parts based on the Haswell micro-architecture. The processor includes specific parameters: 4 CPU core, supports Hyper-Threading, 4.4GHz Turbo Boost frequency, 8MB cache, thermal design power of 88 watts, integrated HD Graphics 4600 graphics core.
This will be the first launch of Intel’s mainstream processor speeds up to 4GHz. Intel about 10 years ago, in May 2004, suspended the battle between AMD on CPU frequency. Intel continued to develop cancellation of the NetBurst microarchitecture, codenamed Tejas and turned Jayhawk processors.
Subsequently, Now Intel and AMD started to pay attention to integrate more cores and Hyper-Threading technology in the CPU.
AMD over Intel first broke the 4GHz frequency mark, but the CPU frequency is no longer present as usual play a decisive role. About 1 year ago AMD launched FX-9590 processor, the default clock frequency of 4.70GHz, while Overclocking can reach 5GHz.
