Intel Core i7-7820HK vs Core i7-7700HQ – best high-end CPU?

We’re back with another comparison, this time taking a step away from GPUs and moving the focus on processors. When it comes to gaming, you usually have three option – the mid-range Core i5-7300HQ, the most common Core i7-7700HQ, and the high-end Core i7-7820HK.
