Eight new models

Intel
Intel Kaby Lake desktop and mobile processors have been available for a few weeks however the Xeon models are still missing. According to a document that appeared on CPU-World, a batch of Xeon E3-1200 v6 processors is to be available soon. So far the list includes only quad core models and six of them have Hyperthreading on board.

New HEDT chips

Intel
While we’ve already seen plenty of leaks and benchmarks based on AMD's upcoming Ryzen processors, some new details on the Intel X299 architecture have surfaced. According to rumors from Benchlife.info, Intel will launch their Core i7-7000 Skylake-X series during the next Gamescom in August.

Launched over 10 years ago

Intel
Almost a decade ago Intel released the Core 2 Extreme QX6700 processor, which was the first Intel quad-core CPU for the desktop market. This being an Extreme-series chip the asking price was pretty high. However a few months later Intel released the Core 2 Quad Q6600, which also came with four cores but was much more affordable.

Almost as quick as the Intel Core i5-2500K

Intel
With the launch of Kaby Lake Intel has brought change to their Pentium lineup which includes Hyperthreading. This means there are now Pentium CPUs with two cores and four threads available for as little as 75 Euro. Thanks to Hyperthreading, the performance level of the new Intel Pentium CPUs is much closer to Intel’s Core i3 chips.

On Core i7-7700K

Intel
If you have close look at the latest Z270 motherboards from MSI, you find a knob allowing you to automatically overclock your CPU. This feature should allow novices to increase overall CPU performance, while in the background the board boosts the vCore pretty significantly to achieve these increased clock speeds.

Two cores and four threads

Intel
With the launch of Kaby Lake Intel has brought change to their Pentium lineup as well. These chips will now for the first time support Hyperthreading. This means there are now Pentium CPUs with two cores and four threads available for as little as 75 Euro.

Big temperature gap

Intel
Intel’s Kaby Lake CPUs are finally available and meanwhile there is even whole lot of suitable Z270 motherboards available. Although the Z270 motherboards are basically a refresh it appears that some vendors are still dealing with issues every there and there. Our friends over at Gamersnexus for example have spotted some abnormal behavior regarding CPU temperatures.

There have already been plenty of leaks from other websites regarding Intel’s upcoming Core i7-7700K Kaby Lake CPU. Today we can finally show some of our own tests. A few weeks ago we have started testing all the new motherboards in order to our motherboard charts as well as our Content Creation articles updated.

As fast as a Core i5-2500K

Intel
While we’ve already seen plenty of leaks and benchmarks based on Intel's upcoming Core i7-7700K and Core i5-7600K Kaby Lake processors, some new details on the Core i3-7350K emerged on Youtube. Due to a review from the youtuber “Hardware Unboxed”, we can finally see how quick this CPU is.

Tested at Guru3D

Intel
While we’ve already seen plenty of leaks and benchmarks based on Intel's upcoming Core i7-7700K Kaby Lake processors, some new details on the Core i5-7600K appeared. A few days ago we have seen new details on Intel’s Core i7-7700K and today it’s the Core i5-7600K’s turn.

Same TIM related problem as usual

Intel
Checking the Forums on Anandtech, there is user RichUK who managed to get his hands on an early retail version von Intel’s Core i7-7700K Kaby Lake CPU. After having tested this CPU as he got it now delidded the chip, which helped to drastically improve temperatures.

Requires Intel X299 chipset

Intel
According to a report from DigiTimes, Intel's Skylake-X series might be released in Q3 2017 during Gamescom 2017 in Cologne. These new CPUs will require you to buy a new motherboard since they will use a new socket - LGA 2066. The platform is called Basin Falls and also includes new CPUs.

Maybe with future processors

Intel
Heading over to HardOCP we find some really interesting rumors there. Kyle Bennet is mentioning that AMD and Intel will agree on cross-licensing arrangements. This deal could include AMD sharing designs of its Radeon integrated graphics processors with Intel.

This time on a Z270 motherboard

Intel
Although the acclaimed launch date will be somewhen during or after CES 2017 news leaks related to Kaby Lake are making it through almost every day. This time expreview.com jumped the gun and their testing was conducted on an Intel Z270 series motherboard with an Intel Core i7-7700K and 8GB of DDR4-2133 memory.

New tests from Toms Hardware

Intel
Although we’ve already seen plenty of leaks and benchmarks based on Intel's upcoming Kaby Lake processors, some new details on temperature behavior appear to have surfaced. Already a few days ago Thomas Soderstrom from Tom's Hardware tested the temperature behaviour of Intel’s Core i7-7700K on a Gigabyte Z170X-Ultra Gaming. In the meantime he decided to also test the same CPU on an MSI Z170A Gaming Pro Carbon, which is when he noticed interesting changes in temperatures and power consumption.

Easily hits 5.0GHz at 1.29V

Intel
While we already seen plenty of details and benchmarks of Intel's upcoming Kaby Lake lineup, today we have some more of Intel's flagship Kaby Lake Core i7-7700K SKU.

Some parts listed

Intel
While Intel's 7th generation Core Kaby Lake CPUs won't be officially available until January next year, it appears that some European shops have decided to list these parts earlier, revealing what to expect from the price side.

Faster than Core i5-6400 and 4670K CPUs

Intel
Today we have a chance to check out some of the first benchmarks of Intel's upcoming unlocked Kaby Lake Core i3-7350K dual-core CPU which is also the first ever Core i3 chip with overclocking capabilities.

The Xeon E5-2699 V5 CPU
