Yeah I wonder this too, Intel keep making stuff appear later, they only made Kaby because Cannon isn't ready and Kaby is still massively behind. I'll stop complaining if the mainstream i7 6 core 12 threads :D

With Coffee Lake apparently, i might just wait until Ice Lake myself since it will be a new architecture. I think my 5820k will easily go strong until then.

Yeah if you have a 5820k I wouldn't be looking to upgrade for another 3 years easily. I'm on a rather weak i5 though. :(

Does anyone know if it's true that the 7700k will be locked to windows 10?

Kabylake runs fine on Windows 7, confirmed by multiple engineering sample owners.

That said, Windows 10 performance > Windows 7 performance, just disable the privacy settings via the multiple one click programs out there, and GG.
