iMac 2017 27" - i7-7700 possible?
Can I install an Intel Core i7-7700 in an original iMac 5K mid 2017? An i7-7700K would work, but because of the heat I would like a 7700 without K?
According to the data sheet, the processors both have an Intel HD 630 graphics card. The current i5-7500 also has an HD630 card.
Apple uses only the K model in the i7. Is the processor recognized without K in the iMac?
Is dit een goede vraag?
I think you're going at this the wrong way.
How about first figuring out what your issue is. Please run TG Pro and post some output so we can try to see whats really happening.
The performance is not the same with the older CPU: 3.3 GHz Core i5 - 4590 ("Haswell").
Think of it this way... You have two rowers rowing a boat. One is very strong and the other is not. You have each rowing on the different sides the stronger rower will over power the weaker so you end up going in circles instead of a straight line. But if both are matched you get better performance. This is the issue between the two graphic services internal & dedicated.
