Average Bench: 76% (48th of 959)

Based on 9,871 user benchmarks.  Devices: BFEBFBFF000306C3, , 1FABFBFF000306C3 Model: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4690 CPU @ 3.50GHz

The Core i5-4690 is Intel's latest and greatest locked Core-i5. This CPU will suit serious gamers that don't plan on overclocking. The 4690 replaces the 4670 and shares exactly the same specs aside from base and turbo clock bumps of 100 MHz. The 100 MHz clock bump results in barely noticeable real world performance improvements and, if anything, makes the older 4670 more attractive as suppliers reduce prices to try to clear stocks. For regular desktop use such as email, surfing, and listening to music, this CPU is overkill and there is far better value amongst lower powered and significantly cheaper CPUs but for gamers and moderate power users the 4690 is a good locked option. [Jun '14 CPUPro]
