Apparently, Intel Core i7-7740K for the platform LGA 2066 will not be anything different from Core i7-7700K
In February, the Network appeared information about the processor Intel Core i7-7740K. Then it was assumed that he would become the new flagship of the family Kaby Lake, strengthening Intel’s position after the release of AMD Ryzen.
However already next day it became known that the Core i7-7740K — processor platform Kaby Lake-X. That is, it will have an LGA 2066. At that time the CPU settings were unknown.
Now this processor along with system Board GigaByte X299-Gaming 3 appeared in the database of SiSoftware. As you can see, the processor features four cores, 8 MB cache third level, supports eight threads of computing and operates at frequencies of 4.2-4.5 GHz. That is, at first glance no different from the Core i7-7700K. In this case the program determines the TDP is 115 watts.
Why would Intel be processor Kaby Lake-X, which is no different from the flagship of the family Kaby Lake-S, remains an open question.
