The oversized IGP doesn't matter (assuming you don't use it for any decoding), but the 128MB of L4 cache the whole CPU can use does. I'm not sure about your stock trading apps, but it really speeds up some very specific workloads.

EDIT: Note that TR isn't using particularly fast DDR3/DDR4 in that review, which is why the gap is closer on some other sites.

It doesn't really matter now though, as its really close to a 4790k anyway.

Well it was worth some research, anyway. Thanks for the input!
