it's Core i7 7700, not 7700K .. successor for 6700 3.4/4.0Ghz, so basically +200Mhz (3.6/4.2Ghz) for 7700.
7700K should have turbo up to 4.4Ghz

It's great that you escaped from that underground prison.

The way you say "Kaby," though. The way you said "Ti" is cool since it starts-off "titanium."
Yet, how you say Kaby...more like "cabby."

Yeah, "cabby" is how I think it should be pronounced, but also "Ti", me thinks should be "Tea-Eye", not "Thai"

Kaby was the reason I skipped Skylake all together. I very much enjoyed the Devils canyon.

Nope it is i7 7700k, and I agree it should turbo to 4.4GHz, but the info out now is 4.2GHz. Seems odd.

One f the biggest hardware weeks in a long time.

I never knew how to pronounce 980ti before this video.
I always though "980 tee eye" and not "980 tie" :p

It could be "Tee eye"! I've heard logan on Teksyndicate pronounce it "tie" and was rather fond of it.

source ? because it's NOT... there is no exact SKU mentioned in the leaked benchmark... so WHY not ? i7 7700 fits perfectly with this clocks... I bet 7700K will have 4.4Ghz turbo

I agree, "Thai" sounds retarded, like they don't know what they are talking about, a 2 year old reading phonetically might say it that way.

Ti comes from Titanium.
Pronunciation:
/taɪˈteɪniəm/
ty-TAY-nee-əm

...and some of you guys are so called "native speakers". Pfff! lol
I'm aware of where it came from, as are most people, that doesn't change the pronunciation. Try saying GTX as a word, you can't because it isn't, Ti is no different.
