Average Bench: 101% (1st of 952)

Based on 12,045 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]

7th generation Kaby Lake processor....

Added 5 months ago.

Poor

49 mins ago.

The i7-7700k has quality issues with the internal heat spreader (once again Intel) which makes it run really hot. Breaking it up and replacing the interface material drops temperatures by 10-20°C. All that so Intel can save a few cents per CPU. Unacceptable.

Nice increase in performance, though not enough to make me buy one to replace my 6700K.


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.

Love it, I know I gave it a high score but I am coming from an AMD FX 6300
