Intel's upcoming Kaby Lake CPUs have been pictured, showcasing a new IHS design, enhanced clock speeds and surprisingly low TDPs. 
Kaby Lake will be the first CPU to be part of Intel's new Process-Architecture-Optimization development model, enhancing Intel's existing Skylake architecture with new features and their new 14nm FinFET Plus manufacturing node.  This will allow Intel to create CPUs that offer higher clock speeds and higher levels of power/thermal efficiency, while still using their 14nm manufacturing process.

Below are screenshots of Intel's i5 7600K and i3 7300, with the i3 featuring a base clock speed of 4.0GHz and the i5 models having a turbo clock speeds of 4.2GHz. This is higher than Intel's Skylake series CPUs, giving Kaby Lake higher single threaded performance than Skylake.  

At this time we do not know how well Kaby Lake will overclock, as these higher clock speeds do not necessarily mean that they will offer higher overclocks.

No idea personally, a lot of board manufacturers are adding BIOS support for them ATM though.Quote

If rumours are true, expect Kaby lake next month. But as usual, we will wait and see.Quote

The real question is, will Kaby Lake be compatible with Win7?Quote

No it won't. IF MS stands by to what it said, then no. If they retract, then yes.Quote
