In this episode of our weekly tech podcast we talk about our review of the Intel Core i3-7350K processor, so much AMD Ryzen information, a great Humble Bundle that is going on and much more!
- CES 2018
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 <a href="http://amzn.to/2kqZD4M" target="_blank">for a modest $168</a>. Could this be the entry level enthusiast part people have been looking for? Read on as we find out!
Intel's first overclockable Core i3 part, the Core i3-7350K, which is part of the upcoming "Kaby Lake" family could turn out to be an interesting option for PC builds. This is the only Core i3 desktop SKU to feature Turbo Boost and unlocked base-clock multiplier so you can easily overclock it. It looks like someone has had access to this chip as benchmarks have been leaked to the web.
Typically when Intel releases a new series of mainstream processors it will feature two overclockable "K" processor SKUs. With "Kaby Lake" we know that Intel is preparing the Core i7-7700K and Core i5-7600K, but it looks like they will be releasing a third "K" overclockable processor as well.
