We have here new leaked details about the performance of the Intel Core i5-7600K, Intel CPU Kaby Lake high-end processor from the Core i5 family faces its predecessor, the Core i5-6600K based on Skylake architecture, although both share the same manufacturing process of 14nm. Apart from the i5-6600k, Core i5-7600K also faces against the Intel Core i7-6700K.


Before talking about the performance tests, lets talk about the specifications of the new processor. Intel Core i5-7600K comes with four cores at a Base / Turbo frequency of 3.80 / 4.20 GHz keeping the 4 – threads and 6MB of Level 3 cache. On the other side, Intel core i5-6600K operating at 3.50 / 3.90 GHz, so the Kaby Lake CPU already has improved CPI due to the additional 300 MHz per core.

Intel Core i5-7600K Vs i5-6600K: Up to 10% faster in multi-thread Performance

From the above test we can see that the new processor was 6.14% faster single-threaded performance and 9.12% faster multi-thread performance. In gaming, the Core i5-7600K was around 4% faster.

When we compared to the king of the current Skylake generation, the Core i7-6700K with four cores @ 4.40 / 4.20 GHz and Turbo equaling the frequencies, but with 8 processing threads for the Core i7, we see the core i5-7600K is almost 3% faster in single-threaded performance, but in multi-core applications i7-6700k is almost 19% faster. In gaming, i5-7600k is 6% slower in performance compared to Core i7-6700K.
