Our objective here will be to show you our results of the Intel Core I5 4690K Benchmark that we have done through several different environment and on several different build.

The I5 4690K has been around for quite a while now and surprised many people around the world due to its capabilities, able to rival even some I7’s regarding overall performance and especially gaming performance.

 

There’s plenty of reasons why it has claimed one of the top best seller positions in the I5 market; it has the speed & power to run any game released so far & the ability to overclock it further supports the already incredible performance.
