The Intel’s new processor the 7th generation Kaby Lake is one of the most powerful and latest processor in the PC market today. One of the leading Kaby Lake processor is the Intel Core i7-7700K the successor of the i7-6700K, which is now powered with a stock core clock of 4.2GHz and can be boost up to 4.5GHz with a same 4 cores and 8 threads, it also has a L3 Cache of 8MB, two channel DDR4 memory controller and has a TDP of 4.5W up to 91W.
Kaby Lake is a 14nm and compatible with the LGA1151 motherboard socket which you can still use on the older Z170 motherboards. Kaby Lake is best optimized in the new Z270 chipset for 200 series motherboards that will support the upcoming Optane memory and the improved 24 PCIe 3.0 lanes, so if you are planning to buy a new rig consider upgrading the motherboard too.
It will still support old memory ram like the 2400MHz DDR4 or 1600MHz DDR3L RAM in dual-channel configuration.
There are 16 variant of Intel Kaby Lake and here are the most mainstream from them all the i3-7350K, i5-7600K and i7-7700K.

If you haven’t updated your PC for 3 or 4 years now, this is the best time on getting the top of the line CPU, the 7700K is what you should get which is faster than its processor 6700K. In my case I am still using the 3rd gen i7 and it will really show big improvements on this new processor.
