Reasons to consider the
Intel Core i7 4790K

Report a correction
Much higher clock speed 4 GHz vs 2.4 GHz More than 65% higher clock speed
Much newer manufacturing process 22 nm vs 45 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
Has virtualization support Yes vs No Somewhat common; Boosts performance of virtual machines
More threads 8 vs 1 7 more threads
More cores 4 vs 1 3 more cores; run more applications at once
Significantly better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.63 GHz vs 3.37 GHz Around 40% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Newer Apr, 2014 vs Jan, 2008 Release date over 6 years later
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.8 GHz vs 2.4 GHz Around 2x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
