Media Outlet Slams Intel’s Devil’s Canyon, Did It Disappoint?

Intel’s Devil’s Canyon CPU is a product that we have already reviewed. In the run up to its release there was so much talk about bringing back the “good old days” of 5GHz overclocking on air, and all that shabang. However, as our review revealed that simply wasn’t the case. Now media outlet Digital Trends has come out and publicly attacked Intel’s newest offering stating it has let enthusiasts down once again. Digital Trends claim it is part of a longer term anti-overclocking mentality at Intel. They claim that Intel’s Lisa Graff hyped up the product and misled consumers because it doesn’t actually bring anything new. Indeed as most reviews of Devil’s Canyon now show we’ve got a CPU that overclocks more or less the same as the Core i7 4770K, runs marginally cooler but requires more volts: hardly progress, and I must say I agree.

However, the sad conclusion (as Digital Trends so rightfully note) is that there is no incentive for Intel to do better. AMD simply cannot compete and Intel has no reason to compete with itself. If enthusiasts want more then Intel wants you to spend more and choose X79 or X99 (when that arrives in September).
