When Intel released their 7th Generation Core “Kaby Lake” processors there was a rather interesting processor in the bunch, it was the Core i3-7350K. This was the first time Intel released a Core i3 series processor that featured HyperThreading technology as well as being a fully unlocked K-SKU. If you remember back in 2014 Intel released the Pentium G3258 Anniversary Edition, which was fully unlocked, but did not feature HyperThreading. With the Core i3-7350K you get a dual-core, 4-thread processor running at 4.20 GHz, with a TDP of only 60W. You get all of this for a modest $168. Could this be the entry level enthusiast part people have been looking for? Read on as we find out!
