Intel’s upcoming Kaby Lake CPUs have been spotted, showcasing a new IHS design, higher clock speeds and surprisingly low TDPs.
Kaby Lake will be the first CPU from Intel’s new Process-Architecture-Optimization development model, the new CPUs are built on new 14nm FinFET Plus manufacturing node. This will allow Intel to create CPUs that offer higher clock speeds and higher levels of power/thermal efficiency, while still using their 14nm manufacturing process.
As you can see in the screenshots of Intel’s i5 7600K and i3 7300, with the i3 featuring a base clock of 4.0GHz and the i5 having a base clock of 3.8GHz and turbo clock speeds of 4.2GHz, which is higher than Intel’s Skylark series CPUs, meaning the Kaby Lake CPUs will have higher single threaded performance than Skylake.
Below are the leaked CPU specifications for Intel’s upcoming Kaby lake series of CPUs, all of which will be compatible with Intel’s Existing LGA 1151 motherboards.
