Intel Core i7 7700K CPU 0.5GHz faster than Skylake for faster CAD and BIM
5.0GHz is a full 0.5GHz over the standard ‘Turbo’ clock speed of the ‘Kaby Lake’ Intel Core i7 7700K CPU and also a 0.5GHz increase over its previous generation ‘Skylake’ workstation. On paper, this should bring a significant performance benefit to single threaded applications, including 3D CAD and BIM software.
The WS-X143 is available with 8 to 64GB DDR4 2666MHz Memory, one or two Nvidia Quadro or AMD Radeon Pro GPUs and over 30TB of storage.
The Derby-based manufacturer explains that the improved power efficiency of Intel’s 7th Generation CPUs will also benefit workstation users, adding that the battery life of its new WS-M mobile range (coming soon), which will take advantage of these CPUs, is also expected to increase.
