How good is Kaby Lake really
Not bad, but not 10nm according to PC World.
PC World has done a comparison test on Intelís 14nm Kaby Lake to see how it stacks up with earlier versions.
The magazine took three Dell XPS laptops that are nearly identical, save for their choice of CPU.
The conclusion was that Kaby Lake delivers a noticeable performance improvement to both CPU and graphics workloads. The Core i5-7200U (2.5GHz base, 3.1GHz Turbo) is roughly 10 per cent faster than the Core i5-6200U (2.3GHz base, 2.8GHz Turbo). Battery life has improved by roughly 14 per cent in hardware-accelerated video workloads ó unless you test using the 10-bit HEVC 4K workloads that Skylake couldnít fully decode in hardware. In that case, battery life is 3.5x better.
