Intel clearly promised a 15% increment in the performance of its upcoming i7 8th gen processor series. The said 15% performance jump result from i7 7th gen to i7 8th gen is based on SysMark Benchmark. The image below tells that each consecutive generation from i7 6th gen to i7 7th and i7 8th generation of Core i7 family outperforms the older generation by 15% performance power. Again, results are based on SysMark Benchmark.

In a parallel news, Intel is aiming to launch Kaby Lake X i7-7740K, i5-7640K to compete the upcoming AMD Ryzen CPUs. Intel also aims to go for 10nm chip architecture in its CannonLake series, which is due, launch this year. Intel has a lot to deal; they simply do not want to lose the industry traction. Since AMD has shown off Ryzen and Vega at CES 2017, Intel has gone robust in its plans and respective executions.

First, the upcoming Kaby Lake X i7-7740K will be replacing the i7-7700K and it will feature a base frequency of 4.3GHz and will boost up to 4.5GHz. It will also have 8MB of L3 cache and a TDP of 112W. This CPU will compete against the high end, top of the line AMD Ryzen CPUs that will be coming out soon.

Second, Intel Kaby Lake X i5-7640K will also not have integrated graphics and will also feature thermal interface material. This CPU will be based on the LGA 2066 socket and will have 4 cores and 4 threads.

It will be taking on the AMD Ryzen R7 1800X CPU. The CPU will be able to boost past the 4GHz marks. It will also have a 112W TDP like its older brother.
