A video review of the new Intel Kaby Lake-X Core i7-7740X Processor. Is it worth moving to X299 and Socket 2066 instead of using Z270 and the Core i7-7700K?

You showed like 2 games? People not really gonna buy this chip for productivity. Actually I don’t think people are gonna buy this stupid fucking piece of shit chip anyway so I guess it doesn’t matter lol.

It is literally 30 more for the 6 core why bother

Lp_Xero says:

I have 4770 non k, should I upgrade to Kaby lake 7700k to have better performance on demanding titles? I have a gtx 1080 ti currently.

Simon Fuller says:

the i5 and i7 variants are nothing short of an insult to our intelligence. Who in their right mind would pay £700+ for a motherboard coupled with this chip when you can buy a 1700Ryzen along with a z370 mobo for £420 that doubles the number of cores and threads?????

Jon Doe says:

Dual channel, LOL! Why would anyone choose this above the 7700K (which is also cheaper), let alone the the Skylake-X. Who’s their target market, someone who spends too much money on a fancy motherboard and is forced to limit its potential with a shitty CPU? This is a definite panic move from Intel.

im on msi x299 raider i5-7640x and i7-7740x with 32 gb 3200 ram and a some how 1070 FE gpu. hope to benchmark it. o c i have a 1080 ti 11 gb version and FE on a i7-6000k. ps its 6xxxk .clean install win 10 x64 latest 15063.608

Neville Robertson says:

Offering such cut down cpus basically turn your setup into a retarded rig.

Once the Ryzen memory shit is sorted, intel is basically asking people to just ship.

BrookTP says:

In amazon Uk it’s by far cheaper than the i7 7700k so i consider this a win for my scenario.

peaheaduk says:

Another pointless release by intel 🙂

Jos Geerink says:

01:19 shouldn’t that be LGA2066 for the 7640K?

AAArmin says:

it is really funny how you separate the UK from Europe 2:25 almost as if you want to be separated and appreciate the decision xD
I don’t want to argue the internet is sadly no place to discuss

It looks very suspicious, during the entire video you were showing the CPU from the backside. You’re probably not holding a 7740X. You’re probably just clickbaiting and faking it for the purpose of getting views. If you really had a 7740X, you would at least do a close up on the CPU or close up on the monitor screen on CPU-Z to prove it’s actually a 7740X. Instead, you just show static images of CPU-Z which are probably just photoshoped.

Pepper_Doze says:

LOL… The 1800x beats it in most benchmarks… Damn…

Patricio- V says:

Soundtrack? Thanks!

Debrishi Bhakta says:

Awesome Mate!

Philosophical Mind says:

the game benchmarks dont seem right, kaby lake should have more fps then the ryzen one’s

perunasalaatti 22 says:

why not just get ryzen 1800x it’s better

TrueDesireHD says:

ah im early time for a joke
