Kaby Lake i7 7700K Benchmarks Leaked; Gets Improved Single, Multi-threaded Performance [VIDEO]

Close

Intel's next generation Core Kaby Lake CPU has been one of the most anticipated releases in the tech world. Now, with a spotted Geekbench 4.0.0 benchmark citing its powerful improvements, the latest Intel Core i7-7700K Kaby Lake processor is expected to sit atop the single core performance charts.

According to WCCFTech, the Intel Core i7-7700K Kaby Lake's single core performance score of 6131 in single threaded performance and 20243 in multi-threaded performance indicates around 14 percent increase from the previous generation. The multi-threaded performance, on the other hand, shows an improvement of 18.5 percent.

Built on an improved 14nm process, Kaby Lake features faster CPU clock speeds. The system configuration shows an Intel Core i7-7700K 4C/8T processor running at 4.2GHz (likely its base clock, not turbo) on a Gigabyte Z270XP-SLI-CF motherboard with 32GB of Memory.

Through the look of a comparison between the leaked Intel Core i7-7700K benchmarks and benchmarks uploaded from its predecessor, Intel Core i7-6700K, both benchmarks reveal that Intel Core i7-7700K crushes the Intel Core i7-6700K. The former gained performance of ~10 percent in the Processor Arithmetic Benchmark and a whopping ~33 percent in the Processor Multi-Media Benchmark, CustomPCReview  has learned.

During Intel's release of the Broadwell-E i7 6800K chip in the past, the processor have six CPU cores with Hyper-Threading (SMT allows two threads per core), and comes with 28 PCIe Gen3 lanes. The main updates with Broadwell-E involve slightly higher clock speeds on the 6800K and the move to a 14nm process, with some minor improvements in architecture that boost performance to a few percent.

Furthermore, the benchmarks suggest relatively good improvement on Intel's processing capability. The upcoming Kaby Lake processor is rumored to emphasize more focus on multimedia processing as well as bringing new and improved features by integrating HRVC/VP9 4K video capture, among other things.

The two benchmarks that were uploaded by an anonymous user include SiSoft Sandra's Processor Arithmetic Benchmark and Processor Multi-Media Benchmark. The Geekbench test uses a bunch of different benchmarks to deliver a performance score for processors, using integer and floating point workloads, as well as memory performance tests, to put together both single and multi-threaded index scores.
