Here we can see “Intel’s Next Gen CPU the Kaby Lake Core i7-7700K is coming! Here’s what to expect”
A few weeks ago, benchmark results of the yet to be released Kaby Lake Core i7-7700K were leaked. Since then, our minds are swimming with questions like, “Will I want a replacement motherboard?” and “Is it getting to be worth upgrading my CPU?” As it’s estimated to be released later this year, more information is needed!
Let’s have a glance at what we all know about this new CPU first. From the specs, it’s just like the core i7-7700K maybe a quad-core CPU, clocking in at 3.6GHZ with a 4.2GHZ turbo, 256k of L2 cache and 8MB of L3 cache, and can be supported by motherboards with LGA 1151 sockets. So don’t start thinking you’re getting to need a replacement motherboard.
How does this compare to what’s already out on the market?
Bear in mind that the above specs for the Kaby Lake is probably going from an engineering sample and not the ultimate product. Still, this writer is guessing that the main target of the Kaby Lake might not be a performance upgrade but instead to enhance the energy efficiency and features of Intel’s CPU’s, which would be well worth the effort.
If Intel focuses on energy and efficiency over performance, that ought to excite the overclockers amongst us, who would then be ready to get more bang for their buck, as generating that performance increase we all hope for would subside riskier. Naturally, therefore, the overclocking potential would rise.
As Intel’s i7-6700K are often safely overclocked to 4.7 GHz to 4.8 GHz giving a 20% increase in performance, if Kaby Lake comes out as a good, more solid well-crafted CPU, that 5 GHz prize seems like it’d be there for the taking. Let’s just hope we will catch on there and keep it there.
It’s always interesting when the specs of a replacement product are leaked, and in my experience, the top results tend to be a touch different from the leak. One thing is that Intel will still dominate the CPU market, which the Kaby Lake, once released, will place itself at the top because of the desirable CPU for all enthusiasts.
As stated, the leaked specs are presumably not the ultimate specs of the new Kaby Lake CPU, and to hazard a guess, are benchmarked from a sample and not the top product, meaning that everything immediately is simply speculation, so now, we’ve only really got one question, can we upgrade to Kaby Lake or await next year’s Canonlake from Intel, or maybe await one among Canonlake’s successors? So what is going to you do?
