Switching over to the CPU tests, first up was FFTW and was interesting to see its lead over the other tested CPUs. Unfortunately, as mentioned, no access to the i7-6700K but the other CPUs tested remain interesting comparison points. The Core i7 7700K was 11% faster than the Core i5 7600K in this test and 30% over the once-popular Core i7 4770K Haswell.

For those not familiar with the Phoronix Test Suite and our testing methodology, all of our tests are built from source for the given system and thus compared to Windows sites testing binaries, at least here we are able to make use of all available CPU instruction set extensions. With Clear Linux their system packages also make use of function multi-versioning.

The Core i7 7700K comes just a tiny bit ahead of the Core i7 4960X Ivy Bridge Extreme system for John The Ripper. JTR makes use of OpenMP and is highly threaded; the i7-4960X has six physical cores plus Hyper Threading.

TTSIOD is also a highly-threaded test and in this case came out further ahead of the i7-4960X and the other tested CPUs.
