While we have already seen plenty of benchmark leaks about Intel's upcoming Kaby Lake lineup, the latest benchmarks of the Core i5-7600K, show that we can expect a 10 percent performance increase when compared to previous Skylake architecture.
Although Intel's 3D XPoint memory modules were expected with the launch of Skylake EP server CPUs and the new Purley server platform in the first half of next year, it appears that the launch has been delayed and support for such modules will be coming with later, with the 2nd generation Purley platform.
There were plenty of Intel Kaby Lake leaks so far so it does not come as a surprise that we now we have a chance to check out how some of these CPUs overclock and it appears that these are quite overclockers since the Core i7-7700K flagship hit 6.7GHz on LN2 while the Core i5-7600K pushed to 5.1GHz on air.
A big leak during weekend has revealed a bit more information regarding some of the upcoming Intel Kaby Lake chips, including the Core i5-7600K, Core i5-7500T, Core i3-7300 and Pentium G4620, as well as confirms the upcoming ASUS and Gigabyte 200-series motherboards.
As you already know, Intel has already launched its 7th generation Core Kaby Lake chips that are based on the new 14nm+ FinFET manufacturing process and now we have some of the first official reviews of the chip.
It appears that NVMe SSDs are getting cheaper by the day and it won't be long before consumer NVMe SSDs are actually cheaper than SATA interface SSDs, as this is already happening in the mainstream enterprise market.
While we already knew that Intel's upcoming 7th generation Core Kaby Lake desktop CPUs will bring significant performance and power efficiency improvements, thanks to the improved 14nm+ FinFET manufacturing process, we now have yet another benchmark of the flagship Core i7-7700K CPU which shows that the single-threaded performance is significantly higher.
