Intel i3 Kaby Lake 7350K CPU benchmarks have leaked

 
 
With Intel's upcoming Kaby Lake series of CPUs, it looks like the company will be selling their first ever K-series unlocked i3 processor, which will feature overclocking support and a high base clock of 4.0GHz. 
 
This CPU has already been listed online by retailers, but now some benchmark data for this CPU has become available from the Geekbench benchmarking utility. This data confirms that the GPU will have a boost clock of 4.2GHz and be a dual-core, quad-thread CPU and will feature some surprisingly high levels of CPU performance when compared to current generation i5 CPUs.

When compared to Geekbench results of the Intel's quad-core, quad-threaded i5 6400 (2.7GHz base/3.3GHz boost) and i5 4670K (3.4GHz base/3.8GHz boost) the i3 7350K seems to offer similar multi-threaded performance and much higher single-threaded CPU performance.  

This boost in single threaded performance is due to this CPU's high base and boost clock speeds, with multi-threaded performance being boosted by both the CPU's high clock speeds and hyperthreading capabilities. If this kind of performance can hold true for other CPU heavy applications, the i3 7350K may just the bargain chip that budget gamers will flock to in 2017.

Right now, Intel has not officially confirmed that they will be releasing an overclockable core i3 7350K, but it certainly would be an interesting move from the company. It is likely that this overclockable i3 CPU will be launched in response to AMD's upcoming Zen-based CPUs, solidifying the companies grip on the lower end market before AMD can release more competitive offerings.

I do now for most of the time. My CPU is quite good too, managing 4.5ghz bench stable and 4.4 fully stable with 1.29v. However, it's not the CPU I don't trust, it's the boards.

I've had two go on me leaving me with a CPU that only fits boards that have been discontinued and thus eye wateringly expensive. A RIVE for example now costs around £300.

"back in the day" companies would carry on smashing out boards for years after the CPU was not the best any more (775 for example and even AM3) but other stuff like X79? Intel release them so quickly now that they die out just as quickly.

And that's an issue for me when I have spent a king's ransom on DDR4 and so on. So yeah, just keep it stock now.Quote
