All New Intel core i7 7700k

The 7GHz Kaby Lake

Intel has been seeding samples of its upcoming Core i7-7700K Kaby Lake desktop CPU to reviewers and professional hardware enthusiasts ahead of what’ll likely be an official unveiling at CES 2017. One such recipient, Allen “Splave” Golibersuch, recently shared good news on the overclocking front.
TechPowerUp reports that Splave managed to cross the 7GHz barrier using the aforementioned i7-7700K. Specifically, he was able to hit a benchmark-stable 7,022.96MHz (multiplier of 69x and a bus speed of 101.78MHz) using an ASRock Z170 OC Formula motherboard.
That said, some concessions were made in order to achieve the milestone.
Splave had to disable HyperThreading as well as two of the processor’s four physical cores. The Vcore voltage, meanwhile, was pushed all the way up to 2.00V which meant liquid nitrogen had to be used for cooling.

That said, the chip reportedly completed PiFast in 9.02 seconds and zipped through SuperPi 32M in roughly four minutes and 20 seconds. When paired with an Asus GTX 1080 STRIX OC video card, the combo turned in a score of 643,316 in Aquamark and 86,798 in 3DMark 05.
Some will no doubt discredit the feat due to the fact that two cores were disabled and / or liquid nitrogen had to be used and that’s a fair argument. With NDAs set to lift any day now, most will be more interested in how the chip performs in an everyday setup with either air or basic liquid cooling.

The Intel® Core™ i7 6700K boasts a 4.0 GHz base frequency and 4.2 GHz turbo frequency, the processor is also built on a 14 nm process, with a 95 W maximum TDP. The chip is a Quad-Core design with 8 threads. Integrated into the processor is Intel® HD Graphics 530 which delivers mainstream-level graphics with discrete-level performance and has full support for DirectX 12 API. Intel’s 6700K is fully unlocked allowing you to tune performance and obtain higher frequencies when used with Intel 100 series chipsets. Previous generation Intel processors such as the Intel® Core™ i7-4790K processor used DDR3 memory, typically running at 1600 or 2133MHz. The Core i7 6700K have an enhanced memory controller that supports DDR4 memory, giving you a very healthy performance boost over DDR3.

Well there here, an I'm getting on

Intel® Core™ i7 is a brand name applies to several families of desktop and laptops, The Core™ i7 brand targets the business and high-end consumer markets for both desktop and laptop computers, and is distinguished from the enty-level Core™ i3 and the more mainstream Core™ i5.

Intel® HD Graphics 530 can easily deliver an amazing visual experience in resolutions all the way up to Ultra HD 4K, so you can make the most of 4K displays. The Intel® Core™ i7 6700K also has support for the latest graphics APIs such as DirectX 12, this means that you will be able to run mainstream games and apps up to 2x better graphics than previous generation processors. Intel's on-board graphics processor is up to 28% faster than previous generation GPUs.

I can feeeeel the POOOOWER, 4.8 GHz overclock speed, I just felt something hard move.
