We also see almost identical performance to the 7700K in these CPU tests as well. There is one glaring exception, and that is SuperPI, which is also one of the only single threaded CPU benchmarks we run. It could be because of the higher base speed, or motherboard memory latency tuning, or it could just be a margin of error thing.

 

While the performance of the 7740X isn't comparable to that of the higher core count CPUs in multithreaded applications, it's still awesome in games.
