Intel Kaby Lake i3-7350K Review

Introduction

The 7th Generation of Intel CPUs have been pretty good so far. The combination of their reduced nanometre process when compared to their 6th Generation counterparts has lead to better overclocks, and the Z270 chipset is a refined, improved version of the Z170.

For those on a tighter budget the Core i3s have always been a decent choice if you were planning to either solely game or just use it as the basis of an internet browsing machine, but there has always been a cost involved in terms of overclocking - usually none.

With the i3-7350K Intel have sought to bring all the excellent qualities of the 7th Generation - lower power draw, lower temperatures, better overclocking - and stuffed them into a tiny Dual-Core CPU. So here we have the latest in the Intel i3 range, a processor that supports Hyperthreading and, as we'll see on the next page, thinks nothing of 5 GHz. Let's crack on.

A tasty K series hyperthreaded i3 (Pentium) fantastic move forward for Intel but that price though.. I'd be more inclined to look at an older i5 if I'm honest.

Anyways great review as always Guv and also a shout out to JayzTwoCents R.I.P AMD 8320 .Quote

It will be the best chip for those guys who only want to game AAA but 1080p plain and simple.

Now let's see how well AMD slaps intel in the face with the 4core Zens

Actually isn't the particular model of gigabyte model's one of the worst on the 990fx chipset for overclocking? Also who pushes an fx chip beyond 1.5Volts on air (20$ air cooler even) and with maxed out load line calibration.
I don't even let my fx chip hit above 55C on the package to begin with... Also at 1.5+Volts the vrms get super hot but... I digress...Quote

Not a bad cpu for an i3, though like you said in the conclusion the price is a bit too close to the 7600k that I'd consider the extra as a better future investmentQuote

I think you can get similar performance with the Pentium 2 core 4 thread and much cheaperQuote
