Sorry I just realised what I should have said is:

Performance gains across generations aren't only achieved through increasing clock speed.
The problem with Intel is that they've operated without real competition for so long that they've been able to release successive generations of processors with only minor incremental improvements.

That being said, on paper the 7700K should be a decent upgrade in overall performance, combined with moving to faster DDR4 memory.
Your CPU is around 5 years old at this point, but I'd imagine it still does more than well enough in gaming.
It just depends if the performance and added features (m.2 etc) are worth the financial outlay to you.

It's probably also worth bearing in mind that LGA1151 will probably be superseded in less than a year.

Ryzen 5 2600X -- EVGA GTX 1070 SC -- 16GB TeamGroup Dark Pro 3200mhz DDR4
MSI B450 Gaming Pro Carbon -- Corsair Force MP300 240GB
Seasonic Focus Gold 750 -- Phanteks P350X
