Reviews

AnandTech

If you are user for which money is no object, then the i7 makes sense because it is guaranteed frequency in the system and you have probably bought extra cooling anyway. For a user that needs another $100 to go for a better graphics card but still wants near top mainstream performance, the Core i5 is the smart choice.

Gamers Nexus

The 7600K has mostly the same conclusion as the i7-7700K: If you’re on Skylake, stick with it.

Hardware Secrets

It is a great option for the user who is looking for a CPU with great cost/benefit ratio, and even more if you are an adept of overclocking.
