It has been a little over two weeks since Kaby Lake hit the scene. As seen in our i7 7700K review, Instructions Per Clock (IPC)-wise, there are not many tangible changes from the 6700K for the common folk. However, for the enthusiast overclocker, that higher base clock and higher top end are really enticing.
