Intel Core i3 7350K review: dual-core overclocking monster

Overclockable budget CPU

By


Test system

In the graphs, the Intel Core i3 7350K is represented by red bars, whereas the other CPUs are represented by blue bars.

All dual channel CPUs were equipped with 8 GB of memory, set at the maximum speed supported officially by the processors. For the high-end platform of Intel we used 16 GB of quad channel memory. The majority of benchmarks was run with the integrated GPU. Processors without an integrated GPU were used with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Ti GPU. Furthermore, we also ran a couple of game benchmarks on all processors, in combination with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 and GTX 980. All test systems featured an OCZ Arc 100 240 GB SSD and a Corsair CX750M 750W power supply. The power measurements were done with the professional EMU 1.X4 power meter. All tests were performed under Windows 10 Pro 64-bit.

The exact specifications of the used test systems can be found in the table below. Please refer to the specific reviews of the other processors, if you want to know the exact test systems we used with them.
