Specifications for Intel's Kaby Lake CPUs have leaked

 

Specifications for Intel's upcoming Kaby Lake series of CPUs have been leaked, showcasing some very high clock speeds and TDPs of up to 95W.

Intel's current generation of Skylake CPUs max out with a TDP of 91W, meaning that Kaby Lake will consume a little more power at max load, hinting at some CPU and/or GPU clock speed increases or additional GPU compute resources. 

In the below table Coolaler alleges that the clock speeds listed are CPU base clock speeds and not boost clock speeds and that the Core i7 7700K will boost as high as 4.5GHz, which are speeds which would be considered a high overclock on previous generation parts. Judging by previous generations these listed clock speeds look like boost clock speeds, though Intel could surprise us.

Specifications for Intel's Kaby Lake CPUs have leaked  

At this time Kaby Lake is expected to launch in early 2017 and only feature small IPC gains over Intel's current-generation Skylake architecture and will be using the same CPU socket layout.  

Right now it is unknown if Intel will require Kaby Lake users to use their upcoming 200-series of motherboards or allow existing 100-series users to upgrade freely.

Maybe the new AMD cpus are as good as they claim, so intel are finally going to give cpus a decent boost.Quote

It had better well better be compatible with current Skylake boards....Quote

Been less than a year since a new socket right? Yeah i'd be **** too if they made another one. I think what they should do is keep the same socket for 3 gens, since they are moving to a tick tock tock cycle(or whatever it is) to keep costs down on motherboards and CPUs.. but I can dreamQuote

I wouldn't bet on it, Well Kaby Lake might be Z270, which means new motherboards.

I have a feeling with Kaby Lake it will be a whole new motherboard again, This is what intel seems to do now.

This is another reason why i want to go X99 for my next motherboard.Quote
