Intel Core 7th Generation Core 7700K Kaby Lake cpu arrived. Intel is proud to announce its 7th generation Intel Core processor family. Manufactured on the latest 14 nm technology, these processors offer rich visual experiences with the latest 4K Ultra HD graphics improvements, amazing CPU performance, and great power efficiency, with the same range of power options and latest advanced features to boost edge-to-cloud Internet of Things (IoT) designs. The 7th generation Intel Core processor family also maintains a standardized thermal envelope for 65W and 35W desktop products, remaining consistent with the previous processor generation, and is an ideal low-power option for manufacturing flexibility.

As a processor with the letter K in it, in Intel’s lingo this means the i7-7700K is an unlocked processor. Users with enough nous to understand the relationship between frequency, voltage, temperature and stability can take this processor above (or below) its standard operating frequency to get more performance without spending more money. The upshot of pushing the processor in this way is usually a higher power consumption, something that PC enthusiasts usually have to spare, and in the wrong hands a broken CPU through overclocking is worth the same as sand. There are two other K processors in the Kaby Lake family, the i5-7600K and the i3-7350K, which both have separate reviews as part of our launch coverage.

The quad-core i7-7700K, which sits at the very top of the Kaby Lake lineup, is less interesting. Compared to the sixth-gen i7-6700K Skylake processor that preceded it, the i7-7700K gains a small bump in base and boost clocks to 4.2GHz and 4.5GHz respectively, as well as the deceptively named Intel HD Graphics 630. The latter, while new in name, is largely identical to the Intel HD Graphics 530 found in the i7-6700K. There are no major architectural changes, and it runs at the same 1150MHz clock speed. What you do get is support for 4K media decoding inside Windows 10’s PlayReady 3.0 DRM, which makes 4K Netflix possible on PC.

The 7700K is the leading Kaby Lake SKU and it has a thermal design point (TDP) of 91 watts. Because it is a K SKU, which means it’s overclockable, Intel does not include a cooler with the chip. The company figures that most people who purchase high-end overclockable CPUs will slap on higher-performing aftermarket coolers.
