Intel Core i7 7700k « TOP NEW Review
KING FOR A DAY. This is, as far as we’re concerned, an acceptable outcome – since the new model is faster (albeit only just) and doesn’t cost significantly more, the case for going with an older Core i7-6700K is minimal. Heat remains a potential issue, and is the single largest reason we aren’t furnishing the Core i7 7700k with an award at present, but if you aren’t going to be doing things such as 4K video encoding, you can keep it under control with a good cooler

Intel Core i7-7700K, 2017's Worst CPU Purchase Revisited
It's also worth noting that we're testing at 1080p with an Rtx 2080 Ti, so under more realistic gaming conditions, the margins will be even smaller. And that also applies when comparing the 7700k to something like the 10 600k, for example, as dated as the core I7 7700k looks when compared to processors such as the core I5 10 600k or Ryzen 7 3700x, especially when you consider that sold for roughly the same price just three and a half years ago.

In Witcher 3, I can't even hold 60FPS on 1440P high. I have a Core i7 7700k and 16gb DDR4 ram. I know my CPU isn't IDEAL, but I mean.... come on, this can't just be a bottleneck right? My CPU is frequently being utilized at like 40% and my GPU is being maxed out at 1440p for Witcher 3.

Intel i7-7700K Review: Gaming, Rendering, Temps, & Overclocking
here is the same as with most of our Intel flagship reviews for the last two generations now, which is basically if you've got the previous generation or even the generation before that in the case.

The Core i7-7700K meets and exceeds all of the specifications listed by Microsoft EXCEPT where Microsoft expressly interjects their desire NOT to support the processor. Hopefully Microsoft will get real with their Windows User Base before enough users have had enough and some decide to fight what seems like capricious decision making outside of online forums into more formal forums to effect better, more transparent and reasonable decisions. The 6th Gen and Earlier, is understandable but there are probably exceptions. 7th Gen and Later for most processors is more than enough to run Win 11 and also meet the rest of the actual specifications vs the processor inclusion/exclusion lists.

Intel i7-7700K Revisit: Benchmark vs. 9700K, 2700, 9900K, & More
But is it worth upgrading is it's kind of a weird nebulous area to be because it's just it's not that old.

Intel Core i7-7700K Kaby Lake Processor Review
There are a ton of awesome Z2 70 motherboards coming out so you have a lot to choose from. Also, you do get the new technologies like the support for Intel octane memory as well as the ability to decode 4k video from the internet. So streaming 4k from Netflix will not be a problem
