Early Benchmarks Of The Intel Core i7 7700K On Linux

Those crazy alternative OS gurus over at Phoronix have posted early benchmarks of the Intel Core i7 7700K running on Linux.

For those curious how Intel's flagship Core i7 7700K "Kabylake" processor is performing under Linux, my sample arrived yesterday and I've begun putting the CPU through its paces. The Core i7 7700K has four physical cores plus Hyper Threading, 4.2GHz base frequency, 4.5GHz turbo frequency, and 8MB smart cache. This CPU has HD Graphics 630 that clock up to 1.15GHz.
