Devils canyon is just a codename and people thought it was a different stuff,just improved TIM,new features on mobo,different cpu microcode(obviously the did it),and updated packaging materials

The only new is the 20th anniversary Pentium with unlocked multiplier

Thanks for the clarification. But what's you thought on it? Is it worth the wait and the higher price?

no problem,most of these changes of names were from the news.looks like that the intel`s marketing department is doing their job biggrin.gif
The new changes in the intel lineup are
Unlocked Multiplied for the 20th anniversary Pentium
Z97 mobos
Haswell-e
With 8cores,ddr4,,more pcie lanes,more IPC,more features for the x99 plataform(than x79)

Broadwell,first mainstream 14nm node processor,more IPC than Haswell/Haswell refresh,from wikipedia,"Broadwell will adopt the Multi-Chip Package (MCP) design. The new layout might also move the integrated voltage regulator (IVR) off-die and back onto the motherboards,Broadwell's Intel Quick Sync Video hardware video decoder adds VP8 hardware decoding support.[15] Also, it will have two independent bit stream decoder (BSD) rings to process video commands on GT3 GPUs; this will allow one BSD ring to process decoding and the other BSD ring to process encoding at the same time."

Skylake 14nm,first cpu with edram/l4 cache memory for boosting graphics,ddr4 for mainstream,socket 1151(could vary),more pcie lanes than than z97,new set of instructions

4 GHz is pretty damn new.

you could always go with a z97 mobo and either chip. be SATA express ready with z97 and there ae some nice boards at reasnable prices. i think a i5-4670k haswell chip but with a z97 mobo would be sweet. if you really want to go with the refresh (devil's canyon) the i7-4790K looks to really pack a punch with being intels first 4GHz chip (4.4) turbo.

Thts my plan is the i7-4790K fr this year wink.gif

Ok thanks for your help. I'm pretty sure I'll get the z97. But I'm still not sure about the I5 4690-k. I think I'll wait until it will be realised to makes choice although.

Okay looool. Admitting I get the I5 4690-k and overclock it to 5ghz instead of getting the I5 4670-k and overclocking it to 4.5ghz, how much more FPS do you think I could get with the I5 4690-k on ARMA III for example?

Yep it does sounds like an awesome plan. Sadly I don't have enough money to get the I7. sad-smiley-002.gif So you don't think an overclocked I5 4690-k would be worth?

51fps at stock clocks

I think you misunderstood what I meant. tongue.gif
Could a 0.5 ghz difference make a difference when playing a game between the clock speed of two same processors?
Because from what I've heard, the I5 4690-k could higher clocks way easier when overclocked due to the better TIM. But does it increase gaming performance by a lot? What if I could reach 5 ghz instead of 4.5 ghz. How much FPS do you think I could gain.
