Will an unlocked multiplier Core i3 7350k the dream budget CPU for Overclockers?
A few early benchmarks of Intel Core i3 7350K have showed up on the Geekbench database demonstrating performance keeping pace with Intel Core i5 and an eight-cores AMD FX-8350. Other Kaby Lake K-series processors have likewise been reviewed by other tech webs before NDA expiry which closes on fifth of January.
i3-7350K is made for Entry Level Overclockers – Expected Price $180 US
It’s uplifting news for the low budget Gamers searching for a chip they can use and overclock as well. With the chip jump starting at 4.2GHz the probability of it having the capacity to hit 5GHz with its improved 14nm lithography must be truly darned high.
Intel Core i3 7350K – The Lowest price CPU Ever:
The price list likewise reveals a retail box cost of $180 against the Core i5 7600K’s price of $252, that could make the far less expensive Core i3 the lowest gaming rig. That doesn’t mean that, Intel are will rip apart their Core i5 deals, they’re hoping to concrete Intel’s place as big cheese in the CPU stakes even with restored rivalry from AMD’s Zen processors in the new year. I truly trust AMD’s Zen should enters into this game with a forcefully lower prices than Intel.
Truly Intel has just made K-series CPU’s only for the Overclocking purpose – in either Core i5 or the costly Core i7 trim. With the price list reported by WCCFTech, between others, it’s currently looking likely that we will get an Overclockable Core i3 7350K CPU when Kaby Lake is available in January.
Intel Core i3-7350K – The Best Core i3 CPU:
Last generations Core i3 6320 was the fastest 53 models we’ve seen thus far clocked at 3.9 Gigahertz. It got along quite well that said at a cost of 160$. One could argue that spending around 20$ more on core i5 6400 was a much smarter investment.
Since the 200 series boards are still under NDA, we decided to test using an updated 170 Motherboard the Asrock Fatal1ty z170 gaming K 6 plus, it’s proudly in our core i7 arcade test machine and with the latest Bass revision supports the 7350k, so we swapped out the 67 arcade and got to it. As you imagine i3 7350k isn’t exactly slow at 4.2 gegahertz but I was keen to see how much higher the chip could be pushed.
Estimated prices are proposed around $150-$180 US which is better for the Gamers who will have loads of fun doing overclocking.
Intel Core i3-7350K – (Battlefield 1) performance Benchmarks:
The i3 7350k didn’t occasionally stutterd in Battlefield 1. This is despite pushing well over 60 FPS at all times, Overclocking the CPU of 4.8 Gegahertz gain 130 FPS.
