An Estonian online retailer has listed Intel’s new flagship Kaby Lake processor, Core i7-7700K for pre-order months before its launch.

The CPU is highly anticipated because of certain promising attributes such as high clock speed and enhanced power efficiency.

Intel Kaby Lake Core i7-7700K now available for preorder

In terms of specs, the Core i7-7700K is a quad-core CPU that supports Intel Hyper-Threading. With clock speeds of 4.2 GHz base and 4.5 MHz boost, 8MB L3 cache, and a TRD rated at 95W, the product is indeed going to be a powerful monster – no doubt about that.

The pre-order offer will set you back $400 which, by the way, is understandably exaggerated because the actual launch is still at least a few months away.

According to a previous leak, the new Kaby Lake processor will be approximately 10% faster than the previous generation Core i7-6770K. The CPU will sport an unlocked design which clearly indicates that Intel doesn’t want to leave behind overclockers and enthusiasts.

The second Kaby Lake chip available for pre-order is the Core i5-7600K. It is also a quad-core chip, but does not come with Hyper-Threading support. The product boasts a base clock of 3.8 GHz, 4GHz turbo speed, 6MB of L3 cache, and a 95W TDP.

Apart from these two, several other Kaby Lake chips recently made it to the Geekbench database. Those chips ran on an ASUS 100-series Z170-K motherboard, meaning the next-generation Kaby Lake CPUs will be compatible with existing motherboards via a BIOS update.
