Intel Kaby Lake Core i7-7700K IPC Review

We have now gotten to spend a good amount of time with Intel's new Core i7-7700K processor, codenamed "Kaby Lake." This processor family is set to be launched at CES next year. Today we are pushing through a suite of benchmarks to see what Kaby Lake has in store for the enthusiast compared to the 6700K.



Before we get started, I would like to say something. This is the most boring desktop CPU review I have ever done. Simply put, I am going to keep my comments to myself till the very end as there is nothing to really say. I am going to note our graphs with percentage increase or decrease and move along.
