    This is as underwhelming and disappointing as it is predictable from Intel.

    Pretty much underwhelming, I bought my i7 4790k and board from Scan earlier this year and cannot see any reason to buy anything from the newer generations at all.

    Ineed, nor even my 4770k
    Society's to blame,
    Or possibly Atari.

    Re: Intel Core i7-7700K Kaby Lake

    Seems very underwhelming that they have had to increase the power draw to give it the extra clocks over the 6700K, so much for tweaking the manufacturing process to be more efficient!

    Would be interesting to see the 7700K down-clocked to 6700K speeds and then see what the power draw figures are between them.

    Re: Intel Core i7-7700K Kaby Lake

    Intel are probably confident that the new ZEN's from AMD, whilst being competitive in terms of IPC, are not going to be able to reach such high clock speeds as Kaby Lake.

    I've not seen even the slightest hint anywhere that first gen Zen's will go higher than 4.2Ghz on air.

    Why test an early sample ? Why not just wait for the official one given to the Press/review sites to Test
    poor review.

    I don't expect the retail chip to be significantly different performance wise to be honest.

    On first release it would be pretty remarkable if it did.

    I presume this is where Intel expect to maintain some lead, because sadly single threaded performance still matters. There are some games/apps like Watch Dogs 2 which thread really nicely, but for each game/app like that there must be two that do most of their work on a single thread.

    Couldn't agree more. Though as expected I'll still be waiting for at least Zen to consider upgrading from my 2600K.

    It seems my purchase of my I7 4790k in 2016 wasn't a mistake after all. DDR4 and Kaby/Skylake have not offered any reasons to go their route and abandoned my kit of 16GB of DDR3@2166mhz.

    This is more Nehalem (2008) polished than Sandy Bridge.

    I'd still be using my i7 920 today if I didn't want better control over my fans, which modern motherboards are far greater at.

    I'm still using my Rampage II mobo, just upgraded the i7 920 (c0) to a Xeon 5650 and clocked it to 4GHz, I reckon my 6 core will probably (in threaded apps) match the 7700k closely enough to not bother upgrading for another generation or two yet.

    Re: Intel Core i7-7700K Kaby Lake

    I've just about given up with both the desktop and E variants, it seems only the Xeon range is making decent strides.
    I'm happy to see what Zen has to offer first before making my next move but if Intel its a Xeon.

    It's all very well to run the standard tests on the chip, but it seems silly to completely ignore the areas where there have been big advancements. Integrated graphics seem to be 20-30% faster, and HEVC Main10 and (supposedly) VP9 decode is much improved.

    Hopefully the full review will test the new features and major improvements.

    I though the EUs haven't changed between HD520 and HD620, nor have the frequencies.
    Now for laptops, NBC did say the HD620 turbos more:
    http://www.notebookcheck.net/Kaby-La....172692.0.html
    But that was for a 15W laptop part which used to throttle like made. But did the 91W desktop parts ever suffer from this?
