Intel Core i7-7700K revealed, up to 40% better performance
With Kaby Lake being the new family member of Intel’s infamous microarchitectures, the more curious we are as to how well the performance difference is compared against last year’s Skylake microarchitecture. That being said benchmarks of the Core i7-7700k have been leaked.
GeekBench 4 results shows that Kaby Lake has an increased single-threaded performance over Skylake, while its multi-threaded performance has also increased as well. The upcoming Core i7-7700K has a base clock of 4.2GHz with a boost clocks of up to 4.5GHz while drawing only 95W of power.
According to benchmarks, the Core i7-7700K had a single-core score of 6131 on Geekbench 4 and multi-threaded score of 20,243 – this isa 42% increase over the i7-6700K, which has a score of 4300 points. The same goes as well for the its multi-core performance with a 20% increase in performance over the 6700K and its 16,756 score.
The upcoming Core i7-7700k still uses the same LGA1151 socket of the Skylake series, and so far with the released benchmarks, we are intrigued to see how well can Kaby Lake go.
