Intel's next generation Core Kaby Lake CPU has been one of the most anticipated release in the tech community. While rumors about its powerful improvements have already circulated online, it is still interesting to see the Intel Core i7-7700K Kaby Lake processor's score at Geekbench.
Intel Core i7-7700K Kaby Lake Spotted On Geekbench
The said CPU was seen running a Geekbench benchmark and scoring 6131 in single threaded performance and 20243 in multi-threaded performance. The source says that the Intel Core i7-7700K Kaby Lake's single core performance score shows around 14 percent increase from the previous generation. The multi-threaded performance, on the other hand, shows an improvement of 18.5 percent.
Intel Core i7-7700K Kaby Lake, What To Expect
The benchmarks suggest relatively a good improvement over Intel's last generation of Core CPUs. One source stated that the upcoming Kaby Lake processor puts more focus on multimedia processing as well as bringing in new and improved features. Kaby Lake is expected to feature an integrated HRVC/VP9 4K video capture, among other things.
Furthermore, the new Intel processor is pretty much one of the most awaited processors to arrive in the coming months. Some sources say that it will be released later this 2016, but others also say that it will be shipped early 2017. However, with these kinds of leaks and rumors going around about Intel's Kaby Lake, it seems like a late 2016 release is not at all impossible.
Intel Core i7-7700K Kaby Lake, Highly Awaited
As far as rumors are concerned, it was said that Intel's Kaby Lake is what Microsoft has been waiting for in its development of the next Surface devices including the Surface Phone. There are arguments about Apple using Kaby Lake for its next Mac devices but speculations are stronger about the next Macs using Intel's Skylake family of chips instead.
