Yesterday, we learned that the Core i7-7700K processors are the Intel good overclock at a low voltage. Today, the network has the test results expected trends in comparison with its predecessor.
Recall, Core i7-6700K running at frequencies of 4.0-4.2 GHz, while the Core i7-7700K – at frequencies of 4.2-4.5 GHz. That is, at least due to the greater frequency of applications should be some performance gains.
To begin with, we note that this processor was not officially presented. The source was in the hands of a sample labeled with a serial, but it does not mean that it is the party held for sale.
Whatever it was, let’s start with energy. Stated TDP processors – 91 Watt
As can be seen in a simple new more energy efficient, but under load consumes more power at the expense of higher frequencies.
As for the test, take a look at the chart below.
That is the advantage of the new processor over the old, despite the slightly higher frequency and a new generation is often minimal. The real work it does is unlikely to be noticeable.
