Making motherboards for a specific type of processors was a common practice but have you heard about making a processor for a specific motherboard? Well, that just happened at Intel headquarters where the company has claimed to manufacture a dual-core i3-7360X processor for the X299 platform.

A high-performing processor designed especially with 2 cores. If you are thinking about the alternative processor, you can go for Core i3-7350K. If we make a fair comparison, this processor is only a 100 MHz faster than 7350K with a turbo clock speed of 4.3 GHz and a TDP rating of 112W. Have a look at both the processors placed side by side:

Talking about the percentage, the Core i3-7360X is 1.25% faster than 7350K and will be priced at 220 USD most probably!
