As soon as we revealed the new GTX 1050 Ti, we promised you that we’ll be the first to get our hands on another great hit. Well, it just happened. We have an Intel Core i7-7700HQ powered notebook in our office! This is the Kaby Lake successor of the super popular Core i7-6700HQ (Skylake) used in almost any high-end notebook on the market now.
The new i7-7700HQ has a 2.8 GHz base clock and 3.8 GHz Turbo Boost – the former is 200 MHz higher than the respective 6700HQ clock while the latter raises the bar even higher – 300 MHz more. Nevertheless, the TDP has remained the same – 45W.
Without further ado, let’s get straight to the benchmarks…
We can’t name the brand and the model of the Kaby Lake notebook we have but for the purpose of fair comparison with 6700HQ we took the results of HP Pavilion 15 Gaming which has similar form factor.
Update: We’ve updated the results with a final unit!
|Cinebench 11||Cinebench 15||NovaBench 3||Fritz|
|Intel Core i7-6700HQ (HP Pavilion 15 Gaming)||7.39||664||826||12371|
|Intel Core i7-7700HQ (Acer Aspire VX5-591G)||8.15 (+10%)||690 (+10%)||888 (+8%)||13470 (+9%)|
Stay tuned for more benchmark tests and comparisons!
