Intel Core I5-4460 Review
Intel Core i5-4460 measures 4.6 x 3.4 x 4.6 inches and helps elevate your PC experience via its rich visuals as well as automatic speed-burst when need arises. Intel® Core 4th-generation i5 processor, delivers quite some stunning visuals, amazing performance and built-in security in order to provide deeper equipment-protection. It is compatible with both Z87 and Z97 motherboards, but users of the Z87, might require applying for BIOS update to achieve compatibility. The device too is not compatible with motherboards from Intel but does incorporate Intel Anti-Theft technology, Intel Virtualization Technology (VT-x) and Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0.
The core i5-4460 is a performance CPU that operates at 3.2GHz and is based upon 22nm architecture of Haswell. It provides 4 Logical Physical Cores that could reach a maximum of 3.4GHz, apart from having L3 Cache of 6MB. Intel Core i5-4460 integrates superb graphics known as Intel High Definition Graphics 4600, which have 20 Execution units. These are clocked initially at 350MHz and can reach 1100MHz when in Turbo Mode, while sharing L2 Cache together with system RAM with processor. Both integrated graphics and processor exhibit 84W rated board TDP.
The performance CPU is quite great and suitable for extreme gaming. A fan and a heatsink are included for cooling purposes by the device which also offers 64-Bit support. It comes with limited warranty of 3 years for parts and labor. The i5-4460 features TDP of 84W, 5GT/s DMI2, having SSE 4.1/4.2, AVX 2.0 instruction sets and 1S only scalability. Expect to have maximum memory bandwidth of 25.6GB/s and accessing 1333/1600 DDR3 memory. Maximum Dynamic Frequency of Graphics is 1.1GHz, whereas Maximum Memory of Graphics Video is 1.7GB. Other important features in this processor include Quick Sync Video, InTru™ 3D Technology, Wireless Display, Insider™, Flexible Display Interface(FDI) and Clear Video High Definition Technology all of Intel®.
Intel Core i5-4460 as well exhibits 3.0 PCI Express Revision, maximum of 16 PCI Express Lanes and maximum of 1 x 16, 2x8 and 1x8/2x4 PCI Express Configurations. Look forward to utilizing My Wi-Fi Technology of Intel® from this processor which employs enhanced SpeedStep® Technology from the same manufacturer. Intel® Identify Protection thermal monitoring technology is available with this device that also features a secure key and OS Guard and Anti-Theft technology. Processors manufactured in Costa Rica seem to have slower fans, which is a great thing compared to those from Malaysia. Speeds may be increased if more aeration becomes necessary. The performance CPU utilizes SanDisk Ultra II SSD of 240GB/WD Blue 1TB and features Corsair CX600M, as well as G1-Sniper H6 ATX of Gigabyte for MOBO.
Overall, users can expect to gain great value from the i5-4460, which performs fairly well for its pricing. The performance CPU is easy to install and works just as effectively as costlier CPU alternatives. Although the stock fan could be made better, it was free of charge and works fairly well.
