Average Bench: 57.1% (288th of 1173)

Based on 962 user benchmarks.  Devices: BFEBFBFF000306C3, Model: Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-4360 CPU @ 3.70GHz

The Intel Core i3-4360 is a good value dual-core four threaded Haswell processor. Released in Q2 2014 the i3-4360 is a slightly improved (+100 MHz base clock) version of the Haswell i3-4340. The 4360 is fast - scoring an effective speed of 93. It has 4 MB of cache and a high base frequency of 3.7 GHz which is fast enough to run all but the most demanding multi-threaded applications and games without even breaking a sweat. However, the integrated Intel HD Graphics 4600 will limit the 3D gaming experience. For more intensive multi-core applications, it is worth considering the i5-4690 or i7-4790 (or their respective unlocked "K" versions) which are also refreshed Haswell processors. [Nov '14 CPUPro]
