So as I understand it, the lithography of the two CPUs -- "tik" and "toc" -- are the same 14nm. The base and turbo frequencies at stock settings are higher for the Kaby Lake.

For the Skylake, someone had published accurately-measured VCORE values to the 2nd or 3rd decimal place that matched a range of corresponding speed settings in Ghz.

Can anyone point me to a similar graph and data set for the Kaby?

The pairs of numbers are average values which mostly guarantee a stable BIOS configuration, even as tweaks to eliminate error correction might be needed. I would think the same party -- might even have been Anandtech -- would've posted a graph for Kaby.
