I've got the itch, where is the 7700k?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I've got an upgrade itch, and I've been sitting on my processor for too long.

Been debating grabbing a 6700k, 32GB of DDR4 3200(ish), and a new mobo but it seems like it'd be better to wait - even if the Kaby Lake improvements will be minor.

What is the best educated guess on when the 7700k will release? Guru3D is claiming December and that seems really far away.

Why not upgrade now and then sell the 6700k when the 7700k is here? z170 mobo's are compatible.

Thought about it but I bet the difference is so small it wouldn't be the hassle to upgrade. I was thinking the 7700k was due any day now (last I hear Q3 2016), but that's doesn't seem to be the case.

Probably around Nov or Oct for reviews and maybe around that time?

Intel Kaby lake will share Skylake architecture and probably jiust improve graphics and add L4 it might not worth it
post #6 of 9
Support for Optane and native USB 3.1 too

Cannonlake might not work on the 100 series board, but it'll work in the 200 series board.

I'd say if you cannot wait, then it may be worth a buy right now. Remember, even after release, it will take a few months for the BIOS to stabilize on any new platform. To be honest, if you have a 3770K and are not using AVX2 based applications, but just gaming, you may be better off just spending the money on some monster GPUs when the big Pascal and big Vega come out. The cost to buy a new motherboard, CPU, and DDR4 could easily cover a second GPU.

The leaks suggest that it will come in the middle of Q4 2016, so perhaps December is a very realistic possibility.




Some more details (you will need to translate):
https://benchlife.info/intel-kaby-lake-will-use-200-series-pch-11162015/

Odds are though the improvements are going to be in the single digits at best.


There are some chipset improvements. Support for Optane is probably the most exciting of these. Supposedly there will be native USB 3.1 and Thunderbolt 3 support (ex: Alpine Ridge may not be needed). I'm not entirely sure about the Optane part - I suspect that Optane will be compatible with previous generations of chipsets, but I guess we will see. It is sad though to consider that the chipset improvements like DMI 3.0 (introduced in Skylake) are more exciting than the IPC improvements. We have hit the limits of silicon.


On the note of Cannonlake, for sure the Z270 will support it, but Z170 is unknown. Then again, considering the performance gains of previous generations of die shrinks, or lack thereof, this may not be a huge drawback at all.

So far the leaks suggest that the 7700K will not have any support for eDRAM.

I think it's more the irrational "itch" to upgrade as this platform offers little to be excited about. I'm guilty too of getting the itch.

Difference between 6700 and 7700 would be negligible. Bet the 6700 will be faster in games.

Why would it be? (seriously)

Is that a confirmed fact that Cannonlake is 200 series compatible? If so then it would be worth waiting for the next gen boards, ie Maximus IX Impact (200 series). thumb.gif

edit: I have been looking really hard at a Kaby Lake mITX build, so if the 200's are Cannonlake compatible that would be great.
