Intel “Haswell” Core i7-4770K Review With DZ87KLT-75K Motherboard

Today, Intel launches their much anticipated fourth generation core processors codenamed Haswell. The Haswell micro-architecture carries new architectural changes while carrying over the 22nm architecture while improving its efficiency. The Haswell generation of core processors are compatible with the 8-series Lynx Point chipset and the socket LGA 1150 motherboards. Today, we will be reviewing the Intel Core i7-4770K and Intel’s DZ87L-75K motherboard but before we talk about the products themselves, first we have to look into the architecture that powers them.

i've looked at some game benchmarks for the integrated graphics. its pretty impressive

but still... let's be honest... it's crap and I can't imagine any gamer buying this and using the integrated graphics and it only.

I wouldn't say it's crap, it will enable more gaming capable Ultrabooks for those who do not purchase a laptop primarily for gaming.

Yes, Haswell desktop is a "meh" compared to Ivy Bridge and Sandy Bridge(PC gaming CPU kings), but it's mobile where this is a big leap with its power savings.

I wasn't thinking about the mobile chips when I wrote that, should have said PC gamer.

Agreed. Intel has done a pretty good job with the integrated graphics. Even last generation HD 4000 were pretty good. They allowed me to play my games on decent settings while I saved up for a dedicated graphics card.

Just think, in ten years we may not even need dedicated graphics cards.

But the need is strong.

That will depend on who does what first, but I can see gcs and cpus competing closer rather than one being phased out. Thats my opinion though and anythings possible.

I agree. Intel has come a long ways in a short time with their intergrated solution. I wish the rest of it was as impressive though.
