Intel Kaby Lake Core i7-7700K And Core i5-7600K Review
Although the desktop Intel Kaby Lake series CPUs are yet to be launched it seems that reviews have been published on the internet and these reviews concern the Kaby Lake Core i7-7700K And Core i5-7600K. The review has been done by John Williamson from Teknix. Here is what he had to say about the upcoming Kaby Lake Core i7-7700K And Core i5-7600K.
Intel Kaby Lake Core i7-7700K
We recently saw that this CPU was not a major improvement over the previous generation CPUs and that heating was a major drawback. The CPU would only come down to normal temperatures when delidded and that is a process that is very difficult to pull off as doing it wrong can damage the CPU. That would be money down the drain.
The Intel Core i7-7700K builds upon the excellent framework from the i7-6700K and doesn’t really do anything significant to push the performance to higher levels, barring a basic frequency boost. Sadly, the CPU lacks IPC improvements, has the same thermal qualities and fails to make the case for upgrading unless you own a lower-end CPU from some time ago. Don’t get me wrong, the i7-7700K is a solid product and currently the best option on the market for high-end gamers. However, it seems like such an uninspired release which fails capture the enthusiast’s attention and prevent them from waiting for AMD Zen line-up.
As we have seen previously the Intel Kaby Lake Core i7-7700K improves upon the performance of the 6700K by 10%. This is not a significant improvement and it would be up to you whether or not you want to upgrade.
Intel Kaby Lake Core i5-7600K
The Kaby Lake Core i5-7600K seems like a great option for gamers and light content creators. If you are a gamer and want to play the latest AAA titles but you also do a bit of Photoshop or video editing then this could be the next upgrade for you. Whether or not you find the upgrade worth it is again something that will differ from person to person.
To conclude, the i5-7600K is a stellar processor if you want to play the latest games and do light video work but it’s not the dramatic change enthusiasts hoped for. It’s very difficult to find reasons to purchase this model instead of the i5-6600K unless you care about the new media features or slightly higher Turbo frequency. Nevertheless, it’s a good processor for gaming and just about worthy of the Gamer’s Choice award because it offers a great experience while being cheaper than the i7 model.
