Come on in; it’s unlocked.

In case you missed the buzz from Intel at Computex Taipei 2014, unlocked Intel® Core™ i7 and Core™ i5 processors (codename: Devil’s Canyon) are arriving.

Core™ i7-4790K is Intel’s the first CPU with a base frequency of 4 GHZ across all four cores and supports LGA1150 sockets. With fully unlocked performance tuning, you can kick up the Intel® Core™ i7-4790K processor from a base of 4.0 GHz up to a turbo-charged 4.4 GHz1  or the Intel® Core™ i5-4690K can be jolted from its 3.5 GHz base frequency up to 3.9 max Turbo. 1

Tweak, tinker and tune your configurations just the way you want them for customers who want the ultimate gaming experience with dagger-wielding demons and hulking heros, or for those who prefer to unleash their creative genius from a high performance desktop.


Enthusiasts and Overclockers Rejoice!

The sky is the limit, or in this case, maybe it’s outer space. Four cores and up to eight threads set you up for outstanding compute performance. The fully unlocked processor cores enable independent base clock tuning to achieve high core, graphics and memory frequencies without impacting other system components. The results are systems with settings precisely tuned for the tasks that are important to your customers, whether they’re into ultimate gaming or creating a multimedia masterpiece.


The new unlocked 4th Gen Intel® Core™ i7-4790K outperforms in productivity tasks, media creation, multi-tasking and 3D modeling by as much as 65% compared to a previous generation unlocked 2nd Gen Intel® Core™ i7-2700K.

New Unlocked Core i7 and i5 processors are equipped to help you capture your next big win. Look for them at your authorized distributor in late June 2014.

Unlock your path to greatness.
