The Kaby Lake is more like an improved Skylake. Cannonlake will be the first 10nm CPU.
Must be from Chinese source, looking at some names
Boost clock will be 4.5Ghz. A bit more than was expected. That one will be a beast out of the box, or its overclocking potential has shrunk.Product name Intel Core i7-7700K, Quad Core, 4.20GHz, 8MB, LGA1151, 14nm, 95W, VGA, TRAY
Out of curiosity I googled 7700k delid and saw a number of websites reporting on my findings of the 30 degree temp drop, but were unsure on cooling method in both tests so thought I should clarify: The before and after tests were 100% identical (with exception of delid) to isolate the delid, both tests used:
The same cooler at the same setting: Kraken X62 - Fan @ 50% and pump at @ 65% (by the way, this cooler is only about 3 degrees cooler than the H110i, but has better config available)
Exactly the same BIOS settings - which was a x50 multiplier and voltage offset with LLC level 2 resulting in a stable 1.344v under prime 95 load
Memory stock (C15) and Uncore stock.
Prime 95 v27.9 run for 15 minutes in both tests.
The same case / config / install (tested with case side panel installed - i.e. how i would actually use it for 24/7 use so the test would be more meaningful to me): https://s30.postimg.org/gzluzd7w1/Case.jpg
