          Best thing you can do is run the Intel Processor Diagnostics tool. It can be downloaded from here: Download Intel® Processor Diagnostic Tool.

           

          Hope this helps,

            Thanks for reply .

            I already installed without problem  IPDT- Version: 4.0.0.29 on following platform with Windows 10x64  -

            Motherboards  ASUS Z170-A

            Intel Core i7 -7700K @ 4,20 Ghz

            MSI -Nvidia GTX 970 

            HyperX Fury DDR4, 2x8GB, 2133MHz, CL14 (HX421C14FB2/8)

            Test passed with success  only small freezing on screen for few seconds during test  - so I could presume good first step on mu new procesor .

            The same IPDT- Version: 4.0.0.29 on other  platform 3 years old  (Laptop) with Windows 10x64 as well same compilation (1703) -

            Motherboards Micro-Star International Co. Ltd.- MS-1763  (Motherboard Chipset INTEL HM87 (Lynx Point)

            Intel Core i7 -4800MQ @  2,70Ghz

            MSI -Nvidia GTX 880M  ,

            Kingston DDR3 SDRAM, 2x8GB, 1600MHz, /PC3-12800)

            all passed well without any visible malfunction  as well.

            And what wondering me to compare results on both of them that on  old platform MSI compare  with new Asus  reults for grafics are extremely different  taking in account FPS.

             

            What could be possible sources or reason such differences  between. I could confirm that all supposed to fine but I ask Your opinion

            Regards

              I am not completely sure that I understand what you are asking. Are you concerned because of the difference in frame rates? This can be caused by something as simple as having a larger, higher (pixel) density monitor (for example, a 720p monitor in the first case and a 1080p monitor in the second).

               

              Hope this helps,

                Looks that   pixels density monitor's are  same (1080p ) but  on board of the  laptop are 2 grafic cards : one of that grafic cards Intel(R) HD Graphics 4600 connected with monitor laptop working with NVIDIA GTX 880M

                They work alternately depending on the graphics requirements - this is missing from the Asus Z170A. You can connect to the HDMI integrated graphics processor - Intel® HD Graphics support graphics support the processor to support acceleration but need to make settings on the motherboard bios and reset the HDMI-W cables. In laptops this can be avoided.

                Let me know if I'm wrong or there is something else ? - and thanks for Guide me regarding first Steps for Test I7 7700K!
