Average Bench: 82.8% - 31st / 934

Based on 2 user benchmarks.  Device: BFEBFBFF000906E9 Model: Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-7350K CPU @ 4.20GHz

The Intel Core i3-7350K is Intel’s first unlocked i3 processor. The base clock of 4.2 GHz on the 7350K is matched only by the flagship i7-7700K. Consequently for desktop applications and the vast majority of tasks that rely primarily on single core performance the 7350K excels. The i3-7350K’s key feature is an unlocked multiplier which should allow a comfortable overclock (on air) to 4.8 GHz. This makes the 7350K far better suited to desktop workloads than any other non-K CPU including more expensive Core i5’s and Core i7’s. The Achilles heel of only having two physical cores means that for tasks that can use more than two cores such as video encoding or software development, the 7350K lags behind its quad core counterparts. For typical desktop computing such as email, browsing with multiple tabs, office documents and playing the vast majority of games the i3-7350K is a superb choice bested only by the far pricier i5-7600K and i7-7700K. [Jan '17 CPUPro]
