Estonian website e-tail website Faunder recently uploaded a listing for the new Intel Core i7 7700K, which included the price of €360.35. The leak is the first we’ve seen of the new processor’s pricing, suggesting that customers in the United States could be paying around $400 for the new piece of kit, and UK customers paying as much as £310.

The listing offered a pre-order for the product, with no information about when buyers would receive the product. It also listed the specifications of the chip, showing that rumors underestimated the power of the new product. The listing showed that the 7700K offers a 4.5 Turbo frequency, and a 4.2 Base frequency

The new Intel Core i7 7700K is the fasted clocked Core i7 ever made, and the Kaby Lake series has already been utilized in low-end computer systems. The new 7700K will be used in high-end computer setups and desktop PCs, increasing efficiency and offering much faster clock rates. The new process used by Intel to create these super high-speed processors s called 14nm+, which results in a node with up to a 12% increase in performance over all of its previous-gen 14nm chips.

Intel’s new desktop processors will support DDR4 and USB 3.1, and supports HyperThreading.
Guru3D reported the full specifications of the new Core i5 and Core i7 processors, based on the new information from Faunder.
