Average Bench: 100% (6th of 967)

Based on 57,968 user benchmarks.  Devices: BFEBFBFF000906E9, BFEBFBFF000506E3 Models: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-7700K CPU @ 4.20GHz, Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-7700K CPU @ 4.50GHz

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 i7 7700K isn't an improvement over the i7 6700K. On average, it's about 6-7% faster, but when you adjust clocks to match each other, it is only 1-2% faster. It also runs almost 10°C hotter than i7 6700K. In short, AMD Ryzen offers much better value for the money than Intel.

Best CPU I have used to date. Matched with a 1080TI and a Samsung 960 Eveo M.2 it crushes every game I have played at 1440p and 144hz. and is the fastest computer I have ever built.


Good

I would like to see how high of a stable overclock these can get. I would also like future processors to not have an integrated GPU so we can instead get more cores or higher clock speeds if possible. I never use the integrated GPU on these.
