Intel Core "Devil's Canyon" Quad-core Processors Begin Shipping

Launched for pre-order on the side-lines of Computex 2014, Intel's flagship quad-core processors for the LGA1150 platform, codenamed "Devil's Canyon," are now shipping from retailers, and can be bought off the shelf on ground stores. Based on the 22 nm "Haswell Refresh" silicon, these chips are designed for overclocking, featuring higher voltage limits, packages designed to tolerate higher voltage, stronger electricals, and an improved thermal interface material between the die and IHS.

The series includes the Core i5-4690K, and the Core i7-4790K. The i5-4690K is clocked at 3.50 GHz, with Turbo Boost frequencies of 3.90 GHz, and features 6 MB of L3 cache. The i7-4790K, on the other hand, is the first Intel Core processor to ship with out of the box clock speed of 4.00 GHz, and Turbo Boost speeds of 4.40 GHz. It features 8 MB of L3 cache, and HyperThreading, which enables eight logical CPUs for the OS to deal with. The i5-4690K is priced at US $250, and the i7-4790K at $350.

No Devil's Canyon processors are being shipped until the first week in July, at least for the UK/Europe. Maybe US gets special treatment because of those cursed "concrete oceans".

My 4690K shipped yesterday from Novatech and should arrive today (UK).

May just be certain chips, Pentium Anniversary is still preorder only. Also OCUK spoke of 2 week delays.

Well K models are all over the place in most German shops for over 2 days now..

I bought my 4770k last year in Caseking - good store ships across EU and quite cheap.

Wonder if the new mayonnaise will help the OC potential?

I received my i7-4790K on 20/06/2014, last Friday from Overclockers UK. I upgraded my PC that day and have been using it since. General performance isn't much better than my previous Sandybridge build, but at least my new system has full compatibility with my graphics card and don't have to rely on a expansion card for better USB 3.0 connectivity. Also built-in sound card is good and I can hear the difference.

All in all upgrade was good and currently looking to upgrade my RAM with something better.

Idle temp of my CPU is 16-18 degrees Celsius at stock in my room which is 22 degrees Celsius.

No point in overclocking as I'm already at 4GHz. :D

Dude, nice troll attempt, you can't have idle temp lower than room temperature, which IS the temperature of the CPU when your PC is completely turned off, in a perfectly ideal and imaginary world, if I am blowing on something with air of a certain temperature, its temperature cannot be lower than that of the enviroment, how can it be lower than that?? your fan isn't a fridge, use your brain please!

I still want to see benchmarks for the 4690k vs 2500k. stock and OC.

Well my room temperate was from my alarm clock's sensor and the CPU temperature readings was from System Information Viewer software for my motherboard.

Also I'm using a Water Cooler, not Air Cooler, and if it helps I am using Diamond nano based thermal paste between CPU and Cooling Block.

Exact readings with my machine in idle and at stock is that I have is 21.4 degrees Celsius from Alarm Sensor for Room Temperature, from Gigabyte - SIV software it is 18 degrees Celsius for CPU and 26 for System.

If you still think this is wrong you can always argue the accuracy of my Alarm Clock's Sensor (and perhaps where it is placed in my room) and the temperature software for my motherboard.

Got my i5-4690K last Friday. It was a pre-order from Newegg.com. I haven't installed it yet.

Yeah got my 4790k last week here in NZ. Waiting for a water cooling fitting to arrive before I finish this round of upgrades and boot my system up and see how it performs.

I believe that you're seeing those temps with your software sensors, but it really is a crapshoot using PC sensors to record temps. Ambient room temps are the baseline and any lower reading should be suspect.

RealTemp works really well for a lot of us.

the i7 4970K was supposed to be the same price as the 4770K but I'm not finding that to be the case everywhere I've looked (UK)

The i5-4690K sold for the same price as the i5-4670K did. ($239.99 US) At least that was the case with Newegg in the States.
I have one of each now, but I don't expect to see much difference between the two.

$240 so lucky, it's £240 here

Sorry that it costs you more.

No, it isn't, but it's not right either. I understand that they do it because they can, and that some places cost them more to sell in.

As a side note, I had another i5 CPU (4670K) and board already when I bought this CPU. So I ordered another board for the 4670K CPU so I could build two systems.

I got to looking at my original board's (MSI Z87 Gaming G45) CPU compatibility and I can't use the 4690K with it.
But the other board (ASRock Z87 Fatal1ty Killer) has a BIOS update that works with it. It was just dumb luck that it worked out at all.
