After 6 years it still works like its brand new. Best CPU I ever bought
I mean this a Haswell Refresh version and I thought that they fix it?
TSX enterprise bug exist in Core i7 4790?
$185!!! yeah right!! does value score influence on overall score? if it is true, it will bring down a lot of Intel CPUs scores
Two months later and the prices on this site is still not fixed. Aren't they surprised that nobody is purchasing Haswell with their affiliate links?
Fix the prices on the haswell refresh CPUs plz.
