Intel has yet to officially announce the company's desktop line-up of Core i5 and Core i7 processors, but that hasn't halted the latest information from revealing more details about the upcoming chips. Or more specifically, as reported by AnandTech, the i5 and i7 7000 series.
These new processors are set to utilize the B0 stepping and should sport higher clock speeds than current Skylake counterparts. The 14nm+ process unlocks better efficiency and performance with the flagship Core i7-7700K featuring a core clock frequency of 4.2GHz, and we haven't even gone into detail about boost speeds yet. Accompanying the i7-7700K is the i7-7700 (3.6GHz), and the i7-7700T (2.9GHz).
The Core i5 family is a similar affair with regards to the quad-core line-up. You have the i5-7600K at 3.8GHz, joined by the i5-7600 (3.5GHz), and i5-7600T (2.8GHz). Next up is the i5-7500 (3.4GHz), i5-7500T (2.7GHz), i5-7400 (3GHz), and i5-7400T (2.4GHz). That's the quad-core line-up from Intel's Kaby Lake family of processors.
The company revealed the names of its 200-series chipsets that will help power everything alongside the new chips. The H270 will be for enthusiast systems, as well as the Z270 for overclocking capabilities. Q250 and Q270 will be for mainstream applications, and B250 for business. What improvements these new chipsets bring is still to be discovered, but we do know they'll be using the LGA1151 socket.
