Will Kaby Lake be a significant enough upgrade from Skylake?

This is just my estimate, but from everything I've read. IPC will be up by only 2.5%, but of course the 7700K will turbo to 4.5 GHz. So stock, not overclocking you are looking at a 10% increase over 6700K. If you translate that into frame rate is minuscule. Especially when most of the applications we run are graphics card biased.

Leaked overclocking results suggest the 7600K can overclock to 5.1 GHz at 1.504 Volts. Despite the high voltage, load temp on air cooling was only 46C.

Not confirmed of course and may have been an engineering sample, but that was the report.

Kaby Lake will bring other features too of course, like Intel Optane support. So I say yes, worth it if you want the other features, but not worth it just for a slight increase in performance.

Yeah, I already made my decision and stuck with Skylake. No sense in paying premium price for a new product with insignificant performance gains.

And I read somewhere the 6700K can do 4.9Ghz at 1.43. Higher temps, though.

I don't see the benefit of jumping onto Kaby Lake just yet. For me, I think a transition from a 2500K Sandy Bridge to the 6700K Skylake is enough of a performance leap without having to spend the extra money on a new release. The 6700K doesn't bottleneck the new Nvidia GPU's, either.

Of course, if AMD do a good job Intel may have to compete on pricing against Zen. Fingers crossed.

To wait or not to wait.............Ive always given the same advice. If you sit around waiting for the next generation to be released you will spend your entire life waiting. Why bother waiting for Kaby when Cannon is not far behind on the tock cycle which means new archetecture instead of skylake refresh you get with Kaby?

Kaby is socket 1151 so it will work on current socket 1151 MOBOs. Z270 will add a few more PCIe lanes but thats about the jest of it. Optane is Intel and Intel is toast in the SSD market. Every time they think they have something Samsung one ups them before they can even get it to market.

performance increase will be 5% - 10% over skylake and this is likely due to the higher clock speeds of the kabylake cpu's, I see the kabylake cpu's are good overclockers with Tweaktown showing the 7600k at 5.1GHz with 1.504v, definitely more exciting than skylake.

This should mean the 7700k should easily do over 5.0GHz.

Anybody want to run their CPU at 1.5v, though? Seems high.
