Average Bench: 73.8% (101st of 1132)

Based on 1,176 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. 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 majority of games the i3-7350K is a viable option, but at current prices it’s bested by both the i5-7600K and i7-7700K which offer far better value for money. [Jan '17 CPUPro]

Excellent for solely office tasks and use, i.e.: no gaming, no rendering, no video and music editing/riping/conversion, etc.,... Used in fully new PC without a discrete GPU (H270 mITX + 8GB DDR4 RAM + 250GB SSD + 1TB HDD)

Too little cores. Not quite the best for gaming either. It will suit other uses like browsing the web, but still not as good as the new Ryzen 3 1300X. And is now surpassed by the newer i3-8350k.
