Intel Core i7 4930K 

Released July, 2013
  • 3.4 GHz
  • Hexa core
  • Unlocked
9.4 Out of 10

The new processors are going to based on a 22nm process and a new tri-gate architecture that will take overall performance and efficiency to the next level.

It should be noted that the Ivy Bridge-E are not only better in both performance and efficiency compared to the older Sandy Bridge-E processors but also topple the 5 GHz clocked AMD’s FX 9590 and FX 9370 processors with a TDP of 220W.

Intel Core i7-4930K pricing, specs unveiled, will cost $600 or so

by Anthony Garreffa |

Intel's Core i7-4930K is based on Intel's Ivy Bridge-E platform, so it's kinda late.
Details on Intel's upcoming kinda flagship processor, the Core i7-4930K has popped up on e-tailer website BottomLine Telecommunications.
Also it looks like the first batch of Ivy Bridge-E processors would feature limited overclocking since ChinaDIY only got the processor to run at 4.5 GHz max overclock with a voltage of 1.272V..
Haswell-E chips would be based on the 22nm architecture and remain compatible with LGA 2011 socket however a new X99 “Wellsburg-X” chipset would be implemented on the next generation motherboards which would allow for native DDR4 memory support.
The new processors are going to based on a 22nm process and a new tri-gate architecture that will take overall performance and efficiency to the next level.
The Core i7-4820K has got some good response by members on various hardware forums regarding it as a good entry level product that sticks with the Unlocked design unlike its predecessor.

Maybe it is only considering stable overclocks, so 4.63 vs 4.67 is statistically indifferent??
What's wrong with the water vs air overclock numbers seem reversed? Unless the water setup had a problem.
