Ever since Ivy Bridge tweakers, enthusiasts and overclockers have been complaining about the heat of the Core processors. This is related towards the thermal insulation solution that Intel provides. good news, the the K-Series Haswell Refresh processors would feature updated overclocking features and the improved TIM design.
Intel seems to finally be fixing the TIM issue once and for all with their upcoming Haswell Refresh processors. The K-Series Haswell Refresh processors in specific are codenamed Devil’s Canyon which would offer used an improved design that incorporates updated packaging materials, improved TIM (Thermal Interface) and processors that are specifically re-engineered for enhanced performance and overclocking. So many users who have been waiting for Intel to update their TIM design since Ivy Bridge can now check out the new processors for their overclocking needs reports wccftech.
The Core i7-4790K will be the flagship processor of the Haswell Refresh lineup and the first 22nm consumer CPU to obtain clock frequency of 4 GHz. It will feature 4 cores and 8 threads along with a fully unlocked design which will allow users to overclock the chip past the limits thanks to the improved thermal design and updated package materials.
Supported by the latest 9-Series chipset (Z97/H97/B95) motherboards which have started to leak just a few days ago, the new Haswell Refresh processors would be available as early as April 2014. The K-Series Haswell Refresh series would arrive a bit later in Mid 2014 so we can expect launch in June or July 2014 timeframe.
