Background on Intel Core i3/i5/i7 (7th Gen / Kaby Lake) CPU

Intel's seventh generation of the Core processor series is codenamed Kaby Lake, and represents an incremental increase in performance for Intel's mainstream platform. These processors have inherited and refined the 14nm manufacturing process that was used for Broadwell and Skylake chips, and the optimization of this process has allowed for increases in clock speed.

For more details, check out our Kaby Lake articles for Photoshop, Lightroom, Premiere Pro and Solidworks.


Intel processors ending in "K", like this one, have unlocked CPU clock multipliers. That means they are especially well suited for overclocking, as normal processors have the clock speeds much more locked-down.

William George (Customer Service) Says:
While this CPU can be overclocked I generally recommend against it. The 7600K already runs at a great 3.8GHz base clock speed, and with Intel's Turbo Boost feature that can reach as high as 4.2GHz depending on the situation. Overclocking safely only pushes the speed a little higher, around 10 or 15% - so it doesn't seem particularly worthwhile to me. If you need every ounce of possible speed then it can be viable, but for the vast majority of folks the stock speed is already going to be excellent.
