Average Bench: 56.7% (186th of 953)

Based on 81 user benchmarks.  Device: BFEBFBFF000306C3 Model: Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-4350 CPU @ 3.60GHz

The Intel Core i3-4350 is a refreshed version of the Haswell i3-4330. The newer i3-4350 has received a 100 MHz increase in clock speed which translates to a performance improvement of 2.8%. With an effective speed of 93.5 the i3-4350 is no slouch and offers performance that's slightly above the average of the ten group leaders. Similar to the G3258, the 4350 has a performance profile which favours single and dual core workloads. Comparing the G3258 and 4350 shows that not only does the G3258 offer far better overclocked performance but it also costs less than half as much as the i3-4350. Although the i3-4350 is not a bad processor, there are relatively few use cases that would justify its price when compared to the stellar G3258. [Jul '14 CPUPro]
