A Geekbench 4.0.0 benchmark has appeared online showing the Performance of the top-end Kaby Lake CPU, the Intel Core i7 7700K. Set in a Gigabyte Z170XP-SLI motherboard, the quad-core processor is shown performing at the same level as a six-core i7 6800K.
We could be looking at the new top high-end gaming here, but these are the best CPUs for gaming right now.
The Geekbench test uses a bunch of different benchmarks to deliver a performance score for your processor, using integer and floating point workloads as well as memory performance tests to put together both single and multi-threaded index scores. At the moment the Core i7 6700K sits atop the single core performance charts, but if this Kaby Lake test proves reliable and repeatable the i7 7700K will be considerably quicker than its older sibling.
