And this is exactly so. In Kaby Lake in comparison with Skylake there is not even the usual three to five percent increase in speed. On equal terms with Skylake clock speeds, new processors produce completely identical performance, and all their advantage is explained only by working frequencies increased by 200-300 MHz.
However, the hands of Intel engineers could still reach the graphics core built into the processor, or rather, its media engine, which is responsible for hardware encoding and decoding of video content. In it was added the previously missing full support for HEVC and VP9 formats with both 8- and 10-bit chroma, which should positively affect the autonomy of mobile devices when playing video.
However, it would be unfair to say that the Kaby Lake desktops are of no interest either. Enthusiasts, most likely, will also be satisfied with the new Intellectual proposals. The fact is that improvements in the technological process allowed not only to raise clock speeds, but also increased the overclocking potential. As a result, the overclockers processors Core i7-7700K and Core i7-7600K, as well as the inexpensive unlocked dual core Core i7-7350K that joined them are able to take 5 GHz altitude with usual air cooling. What do they attract first and foremost.
