Don't make the mistake I've been making for years and fall pray to the only-i7 for gaming hype. Unless you're intending to make multiple VMs on your machine, there is ZERO benefit to buying an i7. I have my processer running in tandem with a 980 GTX and there hasn't been a game yet that I haven't been able to play with everything maxed out at +60fps.
For gaming? Jest what it say's, 4 cores, 4 threads, default clock at 3.5GHz and boost all the way up to 4.1GHz, all 4 cores by some overclocking.
Even without the overclocking it can run the modern games well. Even pair up with the high end GPU's today's and you have a amazing setup.
But if you going to do that I will get a much more bigger PSU for wattage power and some cooling solutions too. It will get very hot under heavy load.
For work purposes?
Well, for like Microsoft PowerPoint or Word then it will run flawlessly. Light video editing? Runs very well. Light, medium and somewhat heavy applications for working should be fine.
But if you want to do an extreme programs like rendering photos at a very high resolution or compressing long videos then I will look foward to an Haswell i7... If you have a 1150 socket motherboard of course. Yea, you can do it with this processor but it's on the "minimum" requirements specs.
For the price it's alright... The average price price for these processors is 230 USD - 240 USD. Same as the i5 - 6600K for the new skylake processor that is similar as the 4690K. Which is the 6600K is a bit more faster the 4690K if you look up some benchmarks for the two CPU's.
But maybe the price will lower by the end of this year. Maybe...
-If you want to upgrade to an i5 and you have an 1150 socket motherboard, get this processor along with a good CPU heat-sink.
-Building a mid to high end gaming PC that is under 800 - 1,000 USD, get this processor along with a good CPU heat-sink.
-Have a work station that can support haswell's CPU's but the station have an i3 in it and want to upgrade but without spending too much money,
Get this CPU... And maybe a heat sink if you want to overclock.
There is still some life left for this little guy, thanks Intel!
The Good: Came in a neat and frustration-free package. Like every Intel chip ever, it's made with a precision that defies belief. Heavy and solid feeling, with no visible manufacturing defects or lines. The i5-4690 is basically a second-gen architecture as of the time of this writing, using the most current of techniques, so it strikes a nice balance. Anecdotally, it performs better than the i7 series in some regards though it doesn't compete in terms of raw power under the hood. It handles overclocking very well; I'm currently OC'd at about 30% over stock, and while I've been able to push it to 4.7 or 4.8 ghz, that's when it starts to come off the rails for me a bit. It's been very stable at 4.6ghz for me and my water-cooled system with 3 radiators keeps it at a balmy 40c under full load. PerformanceTest rated this under load's CPU Mark as slightly better than an i7-3720, though well below the 5820K, with a total result of 9658.
The Bad: Not so much a bad as a limitation, over 4.6 ghz this CPU is prone to load errors and starts crashing unexpectedly.
Improvements: Way outside of my baliwick, so no improvements to mention.
TL;DR: A bit better than an i7 in a select few fields, though not as powerful overall; still, it overclocks like a champ and the price is well worth bumping down from the i7 for anything less than the most demanding of performance hunters, and it's very OC friendly.
