Consider the i5 6600k kept RRP £220+ for all this time, it seems like a no brainer to go for an i5 7600k if you are looking to build an i5 1151 system.

This is not a deal just a spam post for overclockers

Isn't it nice how (almost) none of the press bothered to compare Kaby Lake to Sandy Bridge?
Let me quote this from a Hexus Forum posting on Kaby Lake :
The review sites have been very easy on Intel and few have compared Kaby to Sandy at the same frequency.
Did find DigitalFoundry/Eurogamer who compared the KB, SK and SB i5-K at 4.2GHz:
http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2017-intel-core-i5-7600k-review
Average of their gaming is +34% vs Sandy Bridge:

The non-gaming average is higher, but some (most) of those benefit from new instructions.
Max overclock has gone up with Kaby Lake vs Skylake (and Broadwell + Haswell), but just gets us back up to what Sandy Bridge managed.
Of course, for someone buying new now Kaby Lake is good.
But for anyone who already has Sandy Bridge or later there is little point even if the new platform has plenty of new features.
No wonder desktop is dying. Years ago I never upgraded unless I could ~x2 the performance for a similar cost. That era is long over.

~30% for wait for it SB<>IB<>Haswell<>Broadwell<>Skylake/Kaby Lake. That's 4/5* generation for 30%. Plus some new features in the chipsets.
* if one is as dishonest as Intel and considers Kaby Lake a generation over Skylake)

You forgot Devils Canyon ;)
That just makes it even worse.

True, but at least Devil's Canyon was semi-honest* aside from the chipset business: a few numbers added at the end makes a lot more sense.
*of course, die steppings used to offer this kind of thing without any fanfare.

Was that Intels response to AMDs Beggars Canyon.

It is pretty striking how the last gen held its price. No sense hanging fire if you're building a rig. Still, will be interesting to see if the 6600k drops much; aside from another 0.3 or so in overclocking potential, it's not far away from this new chip at all, for games anyway.

It's getting worse.
I paid this much for a 5820K at launch.

I hope Ryzen is as good. They've had plenty of time.

Is this better than a i7 6700k?

No, but it has comparable gaming performance.

Alright thanks, been offered the i7 for about the same price as this one

Digital Foundry did a really good piece comparing the i5 2500k to the 6600k and 7600k (stock and OC @ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j7bcjFnLib8&)

Personally I think the likes of intel and nvidia should look at why the desktop market's shrinking since a large part of it seems to be due to ripoff practices such as these. Year on year the performance increases are falling and the prices are increasing. The i5's now have rrp's comparable to what i7's were being sold for a few years ago...What do you get to show for it??? A £5 saving on your electric bill, a 5-10% performance increase and an iGPU that 99% of owners will never use. It's hard to justify spending on desktop upgrades when ps4/xbox one performance isn't that far behind in games and cost less than either an enthusiast CPU and GPU. I'm going to have to say the same as when skylake launched at an inflated price...keep it and stick it up your **** intel. I'll spend my hard earned elsewhere.

That's where that's from. Digital Foundry is the youtube channel, Eurogamer the website. I'm old fashioned and prefer reading to watching reviews especially if there's figures involved!

The gamer segment (PCs) is profitable, but small. but its bulk business that buys the most, and generally most (90%?) ppl do not upgrade their computer, they just go out and buy a new one, so having a shiney new model with this years CPU is essential to the marketing dept, along with thunderDolt usb3.1 nvme SSD pcie3 DDR4 (none of which AMD has at present)
