Intel Kaby Lake Benchmarks Hit the Web; Core i7-7700K CPU Specs Leaked?
Intel Kaby Lake benchmarks have been leaked on the Internet, and presumably these are for the upcoming Core i7-7700K. The benchmarks are leaked by SiSoftware, who posted the results online for an alleged Intel CPU with a base frequency of 3.6 GHz and a turbo speed of 4.2 GHz, 8 MB of L3 cache, eight threads and integrated graphics clock at 1150 Hz.
The benchmark tests were ran on a 64 bit Windows 10, and according to the arithmetic benchmarks the processor is capable of 118.71 Gigaoperations per second across eight threads. While for the display, the chip can handle 313.84 Megapixels per second.
Intel Kaby Lake benchmark shows a performance of 5.59 GB per second during cryptographic processing, the chip has a DDR4 latency of 23.2 nanoseconds and a GPU performance of 37.41 Megapixels per second.
However, there is a high probability that these benchmarks do not represent the final performance, because these numbers are lower compared to the current Core i7-6700K.
It is important to mention that, benchmark does not specifically describe the CPU as Core i7-7700K, but rather than Intel Kabylake platform Kabylake Client System with a Genuine Intel CPU 0000.
The upcoming Core i7-7700K will be the successor of Core i7-6700K. This CPU is expected to be the flagship processor until next year when Intel releases its 10 nanometer Cannonlake processors. This processor will be joined by Core i7-7500U Kaby Lake-U chip and Core M7-7Y75 “Kaby Lake-Y” chip which will target the low-end PC or Ultrabooks.
The Kaby Lake processors are expected to be revealed at Computex 2016 which will take place between May 31 and June 4, followed by a Q3 2016 release. This processor family will have thermal envelop between 35 Watts and 95 Watts, support for DDR4 and DDR3L memory and support for socket LGA 1151, as well.
So what do you think of these Kaby Lake benchmarks?
