Yes. It isn't Coffee Lake, which comes out next month.

Nothing wrong with it, but Coffee lake will perform better. If you're buying NOW, 7700k is a good choice.

I'm using a 6700K and it pretty much splits the sun.

Coffee Lake is bringing 4 cores to i3, 6 cores to i5, and 6 cores with hyper-threading to i7. I wouldn't spend a dime on Kaby Lake. Why get an i5-7600K for ~$220 when you would be able to get an i3-8350K for ~$180? Same number of cores and threads, higher clock speed, less money, upgrade path to six cores. Kaby Lake was a way for Intel to milk money out of customers without offering more performance.

Not everyone is aware of what Coffee Lake is bringing to the table. I'm helping raise awareness so people stop wasting money on Kaby Lake. Even upon release, I suggested people pick Skylake unless the Kaby Lake equivalent was identically priced.

Yeah, everyone, please dump your 5.1GHz 7700K's for $150 so I can build endless gaming nodes please.
