What exactly are you on about? The i7 2700K is still a 4 core/ 8 thread CPU just like the 2600K. Compared to the 2500K, it's got 4 more threads.

I was wondering the same thing, not really sure what he means by that.

He's new to Intel afterall. It's all good.

This is basically a 2600K, with the multi set to 35 instead of 34.

Thanks for that... yes still getting up to speed on SANDY. For some reason I was thinking that 2600k was 4c/6t. I feel stupid now lol

My face is red, one of those moments...

Maybe he meant 2 more threads about the same review? idk

At the end of the day we found the Intel Core i7-2700K Sandy Bridge CPU is nothing more than a multiplier bump. As you can see from the CPU-Z capture above, the Intel 2700K is a revision D2 processor, which is the same revision as the Intel 2600K. While Intel isn't making a big deal with the launch of this processor we found it interesting since that 100MHz clock frequency increase was enough for the Intel Core i7-2700K to beat or tie the AMD FX-8150 Bulldozer processor. When we first reviewed the AMD FX-8150 we found it able beat the Intel Core i7-2600K in benchmarks like HandBrake, Pov-Ray and Cyberlink MediaEspresso. The Intel Core i7-2700K was able to tie or beat the AMD FX-8150 Bulldozer processor in all of those benchmarks. That said the Intel Core i7-2600K can easily be overclocked to this clock speed, but not everyone wants to partake in overclocking. The Intel Core i7-2700K is ideal for those people or those that are looking for highly screened processors with hopes of getting a great overclocking processor.
Those are the people who buy the 2600 (non-K version) in a pre-built system at Best Buy. And I'm not talking down about them at all; the people who buy K versions do so because they are the overclocking versions of the CPUs. Reviewing an overclocking CPU without overclocking it is as pointless as it gets.

Gee, I wonder how they came to the conclusion that the 2700K performs just like a 2600K with a 100MHz bump?

I thought the 2700k were better binned chips that would likely get the 2600k OC but with lower voltage. Let me know if I'm mistaken

Psh, my freaking 970 clocks better than some 990x/980x's.

But yeah I do love my 2600k. 5Ghz/1.38 v

Word has it these are much better binned for OC'ing... if that is true, then is really makes the whole "it's just 100mhz more" comment rather moot.
