Intel's Core i7 & i5 Kaby Lake X Specs & Prices
Moving further down the food chain we have Intel's small, two SKU, Kaby Lake X family. It includes a quadcore hyperthreaded i7 part dubbed the 7740K and a quadcore i5 part that lacks hyperthreading dubbed the 7640K.
The Core i7 7740K represents a sidegrade to Intel's Core i7 7700K in terms of specs, but the company hopes that its presence on the more feature-packed X299 platform will attract more enthusiasts to it. It runs at base clock speed of 4.3GHz, a meager 100MHz higher than the 7700K, and a boost clock speed of 4.5GHz matching that of the 7700K. It also has the exact same amount of L3 cache, which is 8MB. Although sadly it is rated at a noticeably higher TDP of 112W. It's also priced the same as the i7 7700K at $339.
Next up we have the entry level part for the X299 platform, the Core i5 7640K. This chip represents a small improvement compared to the i5 7600K. It runs at a base clock speed of 4.0GHz and a Turbo of 4.2GHz. This chip is priced at $242, which is exactly the same as the i5 7600K's launch price. Just like its bigger brother its rated at a surprisingly high TDP of 112W.
