Intel Core I7-4820K Review

Sandy Bridge-E was Intel's earliest user-oriented product that has quad-channel DDR3-1600 memory, and accepted PCI-Express 3.0 (even if not on Intel's particular motherboards). The Intel Core i7-4960X processor modernizes the CPU design to the 22nm-based Ivy Bridge, however makes few added changes. Here is our detailed review so you can decide whether it suits you or not:



One of the advantages to a moderately small update in this way is that backwards compatibility is easier to guarantee. Needless to say, if you have an X79 motherboard, you can hope for an Ivy Bridge-E upgrading. If you have the Intel DX79SI, DX79TO or DX79SR boards, you won’t get to upgrade.



The Intel Core i7 4820K is an entry-level Ivy Bridge-E processor. It succeeds the 3820 that is as well a quad-core CPU; on the other hand observant people will notice a crucial distinction: the latest model boasts an unlocked multiplier, identical to its six-core siblings. The older one lacked this attribute, making it fairly less appealing for those looking for the best hit for their money in the high-end sector. The Intel Core i7 4820K boasts a default rate of 3.7 GHz, with the Turbo just slightly passing this to 3.9 GHz. The L3 reserve is 10 MB.



The Intel Core i7 4820K's cost is of particular concern, just a bit below the Socket 1150 Haswell best model, the i7 4770K. The 4820K boasts several benefits in this assessment: it functions at an elevated stock speed, and as well has a quad-channel recall controller and additional PCI-Express tracks. The 4770K then again utilizes motherboards that will be rather cheaper generally, whereas the Haswell architecture includes a number of improvements not there in Ivy Bridge-E. For clean processing power within no time, the 4820K may just compare very well indeed.



The price of the Intel Core i7-4820K is much lower, because of many compromises on interior counts and tiny clock speed boosts. Intel is poised to initiate several eight-core Xeon central processing units. Shifting one of those chips to LGA2011 whilst reviving the chipset to include local USB 3.0 support and extra SATA 6G ports could have been a logical improvement for the platform.



After Sandy Bridge-E was initiated, six-core processors and the LGA2011 platform were the best Intel solutions you could get. For a chip that retails three times more than the Intel Core i7-4770K, on the other hand lacks certain capabilities and features, that's a bad value.



If you have multi-stringed workloads that you recognize respond well to over four cores, in that case yes, the Intel Core i7-4820K is still going to be a fascinating chip. But just if you purchase the highest end.

  • The Good :
    The best consumer processor
  • The Bad :
    Lacks support for most recent Haswell attributes, Not the best chip for single-stranded tasks, Not well-suited with Intel-made motherboards
Our score:
3.5 / 5
