Today we have first leaked benchmarks of Intel Core-i3 7350K, based on Intel Kaby Lake architecture. As you can see below in the image of synthetic benchmarks, this humble processor equipped with 2 cores and 4 threads with 4.2 GHz turbo Boost frequency and outperforms Core-i5 CPUs i5-4670k and 6400, the sixth and fourth generation respectively. In addition, the Core-i3 7350K is the first chip of its kind to provide access to an unlocked multiplier for Overclocking enthusiasts.
Intel Core-i3 7350k Performs Faster Than Core-i5 6400 and Core i5-4670k
The Core-i3 7350K is rated with a TDP of 91W with 4MB L3 Cache and also a Dual Core CPU with Hyperthreading, so essentially it can run up to four threads simultaneously. This is precisely because this small chip has a 4.2 GHZ boost in stock. The unlocked multiplier will help to increase the frequency and it is designed for the players who don’t want to spend more money for single-core performance.
The i3 7350k gets a score of 5137 in Geekbench, noticeably faster than the i5 chips. However the impressive figures don’t stop and despite having only two cores the i3 7350K manages to deliver a multi-core score of 10048.
