Upgrading Processor on Late 2015 iMac 27

Late 2015 iMac 27 Retina 5k

I have two iMac 27's. One has an an Intel Core i7 processor.

The other one has an Intel Core i5 processor.

The speed difference is noticeable, so I'd like to upgrade the i5 to an i7 processor. Can someone please give me the i7 processor model number?

Can it be swapped plug & play, with no other concerns?

Thanks. I already scanned that process. It's the easy part.

That didn't address my original question.

Here's the guide for doing it: iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display CPU Replacement

UPDATE

The iMac "Core i7" 4.0 27-Inch Aluminum (Retina 5K, Late 2015/Skylake) features a 14-nm "Skylake" Quad Core 4.0 GHz Intel "Core i7" processor (6700K) with four independent processor "cores" on a single chip, an 8 MB shared level 3 cache, 8 GB of 1867 MHz LPDDR3 SDRAM (PC3-14900) installed in pairs (two 4 GB modules)

I am wondering if someone has tried upgrading this model to 7700k (kaby lake). Since the socket connection is the same. I don't see a reason why it wouldn't work (apart from EFI or some other safety checks).

Its more than the socket its also the PCH needs to support it and the systems firmware as you noted needs to handle it.

I'm not sure if given the amount of work and the risks in replacing the chip are worth it given the slight speed bump you would get.

Would this clear this question?
