I specifically talked about this with Guttheslayer, and he's still going around talking about IPC.
To clear up this 11% single-thread performance increase, I believe it's coming primarily from the turbo 3.0 clock speed bump. 8700K is 4.7GHz, 7700K is 4.4GHz, that accounts for 7% of the 11% from clocks alone. The other 4% might be IPC, better cache, or just margin of error.
The 11%/51% figures from Intel are really IPS increases.Edited by mouacyk - 8/28/17 at 2:45pm
