While people may doubt the authenticity of the picture. But the Chinese forums has provided authentic info so far.


Core i5-7600K

The Core i5-7600K is a 4 core chip without multi-threading support. This chip has 6MB of L3 cache and 95W TDP. Base clock is 3.8GHz and is capable of boosting to greater than 4GHz.

The Kaby Lake desktop processors will release early 2017 although the corresponding Z270 chipset motherboards might come out before that.
