Early Core i7-7700K Testing Reveals Higher Clocks And Power Usage

According to the crew over at the Tech Report, a website owned by an AMD employee, supposed leaked Intel Core i7-7700K benchmarks shows higher clock speeds, performance and power usage from Intel's upcoming Kaby Lake processor.

The basic specs of the Core i7-7700K that Tom's reports are about in line with the rumors and leaks we've seen so far. Tom's says the chip has a 4.2 GHz base clock and a 4.5 GHz Turbo speed, and its four cores and eight threads slip into a 95W TDPآ—up slightly from the Core i7-6700K's 91W figure. That TDP increase is borne out by a small increase in power consumption in the site's testingآ—141W under a stock-clocked Prime95 Small FFTs load for the Kaby Lake chip, up from 133W for the Core i7-6700K running the same torture test.
