Intel Core i5-7600K Kaby Lake Processor Review
Verdict: The Intel Core i5-7600K is a great processor for gaming but it's completely devoid of meaningful performance gains clock-for-clock. While the higher Turbo frequency is welcome, it's easily achieved via overclocking on the i5-6600K.
Pros: 5.1GHz is possible with less than 1.4V, Excellent overclocking temperatures, Good iGPU improvements over Skylake, Great single-threaded performance, HDCP 2.2 and Microsoft PlayReady 3.0 compliant, Lower wattage than Skylake clock-for-clock, Intel's Optane technology is a revolution in waiting,...
Cons: Doesn't try to end stagnation in the CPU sector, Higher frequency results in an increased power draw over the i5-6600K, Performance benefits come entirely from the new Turbo clock, Poor reaction to Zen which provides no reasons at all to rush out and upgrade, Zero IPC improvements
