    I hope that's sarcasm, if it's not why would you go from a 6700k to 7700k?

    I got very close numbers with my 4 series i5 compared to the 7700k It's not worth paying extra money on ddr4 and a new mobo by the looks of It.

    Maybe Intel will take notice now, and stop releasing such minor upgrades.
    And this on the new enthusiast Z platform FFS.

    Every year a new series and new chipsets, but no progress.
    Hope AMD will do the right thing and Intel can suck it 2-3 years for those prices and "new" CPUs.

    Well HEY, 0.02% is still bigger than 0.01%!

    Yes, it is, i am curious though, how it overclockes compared to skylake.

    So it's 91W vs 95W (+4,4%), and for this extra cost we get +7,4-8,8% cpu-performance at the same 14nm process (+3-4,4%). This is on paper not a big deal, and maybe in a real power-consumption test there will be no difference at all.
    The main increase should be with the iGPU, but that's not important for gamers, so hello skylake 2.0, haswell 3.0, ivy-bridge 4.0, sandy-bridge 5.0 (if we forget about broadwell).

    If it can get a higher overclock than skylake and mantain this +3-4,4% increased performance, then it's still just a very little upgrade, only for those good, who have old pc and need a new one. Better buy is still a used i7-5820k with 6cores12threads, just games doesn't really need 6cores yet, but it's more futureproof than a 4core processor for same cost.

    Coffee Lake is just another refresh, and is only being released because Cannonlake has been dropped for desktop systems after being delayed twice (have to wait for Ice Lake). Coffee Lake will be tweaked a lot more though, or at least it should be because they still have ample time to do such things.

    So single thread managed 7.4 percent faster and multi-thread 8.88 percent. Keeping in mind the i7-7700K is clocked faster, and no doubt both tests they were able to run at their boost clocked. So, 4.5 boost clock to 4.2 should yield a benefit of just over 7 percent.

    So the gain is very minuscule. They did mention process improvements etc., no doubt most of that would be going into cost saving!

    I thought it was :) I suspect it'll overclock the same as the 6700k

    Sure but you forgot "-", in test mentioned 7700k was 0.02% slower.

    They should do last test in which they leave 7700K stock and OC 6600K to 4.5GHz. And see what they get.

    Well if skylake scales perfectly with clocks the difference is what 1-2%? At least Kaby being so underwhelming gives Zen better chances...

    I will wait till (zen) drops then decide what route to take. Intel is seriously milking us at this point in time/.I do miss my 4790k but this time around I will wait it out.:)

    No one needs one. I would rather wait too see what 8c/16t Zen can do.
