The Core i7-7700K is Intel’s flagship Kaby Lake based CPU which is reported to have the same IPC as its predecessor, Skylake. Comparing the 7700K and 6700K shows that both average effective speed and peak overclocked speed are up by 7%. Most of the increase in average effective speed is explained by the 5% boost in base clocks from 4.0 to 4.2 GHz. The improved peak lab speed is attributable to a combination of better overclocking capacity and improvements in Intel’s speedshift technology which make the 7700K slightly more responsive. Kaby Lake also has marginally better HD 630 integrated graphics. The i7-7700K is priced similarly to the i7-6700K so for top end gaming and workstation builds, the 7700K is the clear choice for 2017. AMD’s Ryzen will release later this year so things could change at that time. [Jan '17 CPUPro]

The FX 6-Core, like most CPUs from AMD, delivers reasonably good server orientated multi threaded performance and consequently good processing thoughput at a reasonable price tag. Where the FX 6-Core lacks is in the area of single core performance which although not normally a major problem for server workloads, is always very relevant to desktop users. The overall performance of the FX 6-Core is comparable to Intel's five years younger Core i7-950. There are server orientated use cases where the FX 6-Core will excel thanks to its excellent overall throughput and in those instances the FX 6-Core represents good value for money. But typical desktop users will find far better value elsewhere[Sep '13 CPUPro]
