After the break that marked the launch of the Broadwell-E with its model 10 cores and 1800 dollars, Intel has used the CES in Las Vegas to continue the landing on the market of its seventh – generation processor, 14 nm and the Expected models at the top.
We talk about the Core i7 for the most powerful desktop computers for gamers and overclocking enthusiasts. We have already tested for a few days the king of this generation: the Intel Core i7-7700K. Enough to consider a change from a very recent 6700K?
Kaby Lake’s turn to desktop PC
Ivy Bridge, Haswell, Broadwell, Skylake and now it Kaby Lake . Since last summer we met the chips that would make up the seventh generation of Intel processors and today we have done the same with the most anticipated models of this generation: the Core i7 and i5 for more powerful computers.
The generation Kaby Lake is based on technology of 14 nm, with micro architecture very similar to that we know from Skylake although improved, so we can consider it as a second tock, before the next tick will be Cannonlake and now points to the Second half of 2017.
These new processors waiting for the eighth generation and the long – awaited step to 10 nm are therefore an optimization of current Skylake. Why throw it then?
