Intel was founded by Gordon E. Moore and Robert Noyce on July 18, 1968. Their headquarters is located in Santa Clara, California.
The Intel Core i7-7700 Kaby Lake is a 7th generation CPU that Intel produces. I believe that this CPU is a good option for many different motherboards. This Central Processing Unit has a lot of capabilities for many different motherboards. Having a pretty average clock speed and a high amount of cache, makes this CPU have a very good performance.

  • Clock Speed:
    • Base: 3.60 GHz
    • Max Turbo: 4.20 GHz
  • Cache:
    • L1: 4 x 32KB Instruction and 4 x 32KB Data
    • L2: 4 x 256KB
    • L3: 1 x 8MB  
  • Socket Type:
    • LGA 1151
  • Number of Processors and Threads:
    • 4 cores (Quad Core)
    • 8 threads
  • Passmark Rating:
    • 10818 (Higher is better)

After going through all these specifications of this central processing unit, makes this a very high end CPU. This would be good for many different purposes for a computer. Weather you are just using it as a home computer, a business computer, or even a gaming computer. Even though this processor is quite pricey, it is worth it. It has a high performance rating and it shows.
