Intel Kaby Lake 7700K and 7600K CPU Clock Speeds

If you are making bets on what the Kaby Lake processors will run at, you should probably go with 4.2GHz and 3.8GHz, which is what a retail site had accidentally revealed. I wonder how many of you who wanted to upgrade just said "screw it" and bought a Skylake chip due to the recent Monoprice sale.

As far as specifications go, the 7700K is going to be the usual 4 core/8 thread configuration, with 8MB of L3 cache, and a 95W TDP. While all of that was expected, Intel has apparently made some changes to clock rates according to this leak, with the 7700K running at 4.2GHz base and boosting up to 4.5GHz, which is higher than earlier rumours pointed to. That said, it makes sense, given a 4.5GHz overclock has been fairly achievable on Intel’s unlocked desktop CPUs for some time now. The Intel Core i5 7600K will also be a quad-core chip, though it will not have hyper threading. This one will be running at 3.8GHz base with a 4GHz boost clock.
