Little is known for definite yet regarding the specific specs of this Intel flagship CPU, but some benchmarks are starting to creep in.
The Core i7-7700K 4-Core 4.2GHz is a high-end CPU based on the 14nm, Kaby Lake micro architecture.
It offers 4 physical cores (8 logical), initially clocked at 4.2GHz, which may go up and 8MB of L3 Cache.
Among its many features, HyperThreading, Turbo Boost 2.0 and Virtualization are activated and the processor has its multiplier unlocked.
This CPU is likely to offer exceptional computational performance and will not be the bottleneck in any modern gaming PC. It will be able to play all modern games comfortably on high/ultra graphics performance without being a hindrance to the accompanying GPU.
so how is this only 11 percent worse than my 1800X ?
Admin, you should add i7 7700 Non-K version too.
Think I will wait for the coffee i7 8700k@ 4.5ghz baby.
i want coffee
First Intel i7 (4 cores) that beats my OC. :/
Thought Kaby Lake was just 3-5% better than Skylake. Never lucky.
why is it 21% better than the 6700k… even the most generous reviews have it at just shy of 10% different and is actually worst(less than a %) if they are at the same clock.
Corsair RM550x PSU is gud for new build i7 7700 with RX 480 8GB ?
It says it doesn't have unlocked multiplier, which it obviously does being a K skew CPU
It has turbo boost up to 4,5 GHz
Same IPC as Skylake.
