    Intel Unveils Devil Canyon Chip

    http://news.filehippo.com/2014/03/in...l-canyon-chip/

    Usually the GDC is all about the games and related gaming technologies. This year at the 2014 Games Developers Conference Intel had decided it was the time to talk about their new processor line-up. The 3 new and powerful chips that were unveiled by Intel this week are undoubtedly going to appeal to the PC gamer market.

    I believe that the highest possible performance from a chip for a desktop PC that is available for purchase today, is an Intel Core i7 4770 chip. But all that is about to change. In the next few months Intel will be releasing the new chip called ‘Devil Canyon’. This is a specially manufactured and unlocked Haswell Core i7 processor with an enhanced thermal interface and CPU packaging. What that fundamentally means is that it is going to be clocked higher and can be overclocked even higher. The chip can achieve both whilst maintaining lower temperatures than existing Core chips.

    Intel has also announced a spanking new Extreme Edition Core processor, which not only squeezes in 8-cores and thereby 16 threads, but it includes support for DDR4 memory. That should appeal to any user who always wants more performance form their memory bandwidth and works with video editing or 3D content.

    And finally Intel has detailed what just maybe a budget over-clocker’s dream chip. Intel is releasing a multiplier unlocked Pentium processor. They are doing this in recognition of the brand’s 20th anniversary. A user can tweak both the core and memory frequencies to their desired specifications. Obviously you will need adequate cooling for the variations in the tweaks you perform.

    Although they have confirmed the release of this new set of power processors, Intel has yet to confirm what the final specification of each of these new chips will be. All eyes to Intel and the second half of 2014, as it is certainly going to be an interesting time period for the enthusiast and budget PC builders amongst you.

    I think it uses the LGA1150 socket but these new CPU's will be smaller and will support DDR4 the link above is the new INTEL 9 chipset so it won't be backwards compat with Ivy Bridge though release is supposed to this year, I might hold back on my next build till next year now when DDR4 takes flight and prices drop slightly.

    Looks like my next build will be mid next year. By then I should have enough money to get myself a 4K screen and a shed load of RAM. Just experienced 64GB RAM on my bosses PC last week and holy hell he was running 12 instances of 3ds Max on 6 monitors smoothly using only 2 GTX680's...
