Maybe SKYMTL can enlighten us, but I'd be shipping them out as the 4790 (non-K). They're worth more than the 4690K variant.

Basically it does similar to what a Deliding does but not quite as good. Intel likely still used lower Quality Tim then most people are using when they delid their cpu's and re install the spreader.

But the fact that the average joe who wont take the risk to delid is getting most of those benifits at a same cost value as the 4770K really is just a plus plus if you ask me.

Also a Chip that runs stock at similar clock speeds/turbo speeds as many of the people who oc'ed their 4770K's (4.4ghz) before they had trouble (many had trouble at 4.4-4.5) Is a good thing for the people who are worried about oc'ing and are able to get a 4.4ghz stock cpu at normal pricepoints.

Pre overclocked CPUs with little headroom. :(

Exactly.

They are not that much faster than their Haswell counterparts; heck a better Haswell 4770K might just reach 4.7 GHz, especially after a delid.

Basically we've seen no real performance gains over the past 3.5 years since the release of Sandy Bridge, particularly factoring in that many of the CPUs back then could make 5 GHz+. Sure there are a few benchmarks here and there where Haswell leapfrogs (say 20%) over the last generation, but they are the exception.

I'm not sure what's going on with our pricing on these chips, I first saw a pre-order price of $339 on newegg.ca, now it's $369. Ncix has a pre-order price of $395. It seems to be all over the place. It's not worth anything more than a 4770k. So I will be monitoring the prices June 25 and see what settles to decide which route to go.

Greed. Plain and simple. Just like the retailers are cashing in on peoples misunderstanding of 16nm NAND and the MX100 SSD (ive seen the MX100 128GB go for only ten bucks less than a SP920 256GB)...they are cashing in on the 'new' CPU. This happens every gen. Will be months before MSRP is respected. :(

Anyone received their 4790k yet and willing to share their overclock experience with it?

Thank you for this review. I have a Dell U3011 and I was having a hard time finding gaming performance at that resolution. Your bench convinced me to buy a 4790k. I'm upgrading from a Q9950 so I think it's going to be a nice upgrade.
