Intel knows this, so it increased its frequencies to mask data, yet the performance difference is between 1-3%. The only good thing about this CPU is Overclocking, but of course, for Overclocking you must have good skills to start by removing the encapsulation of the CPU, because Intel used a very cheap thermal compound which seriously affects temperatures.

The Core i7-7700K fell into the hands of Overclocker Allen Golibersuch, known as Splave. With ASRock OC Formula Z170 motherboard he managed to successfully reach stable 7022.96 MHz using the maximum 69x multiplier and a Vcore to 2.00v. To achieve this milestone, he had to disable HyperThreading technology with two of the four cores offered by the CPU.
