Intel is reportedly releasing a new i3 chip that is believed to have beaten the overclocking speed of current quadcore i5 chipsets. Benchmark results of the upcoming Intel i3 7350K have surfaced and tech enthusiasts got excited about how impressive the chipsets are.

The Intel i3 7350K could be an unlocked overclockable chipset that's a first from the tech giant's Kaby Lake family of chipsets. It was once a rumor but the benchmark listing seemingly confirmed its existence.  The dual-core Intel i3 7350K has 4MB of L3 cache and a TDP of 91W. Being hyperthreaded, the upcoming chipset is capable of executing up to four threads at the same time, noted WCCFTech.

As spotted in the Geekbench testing, the Intel i3 7350K 4.2 Ghz boost clock allows it to deliver a 5137 score for its single-core performance. This score is faster than an i5 stock chipset. But that's just not what makes the i3 7350K an impressive CPU; with only two cores, it had a multi-core rating of 10048. This should make the upcoming chipset at par with the i5 6400. As a reference, the Skylake Core i3-6100 delivers a single-core rating of 4033 and a multi-core rating of 7555.

For now, it is evident that the Intel i3 7350K is as impressive as it gets. But because it has an overclocking potential and belongs to the K-series chip, the chipset is assumed to be even more interesting to tech enthusiasts. The upcoming CPU is expected to be available sometime in January 2017 and only then will people know its capabilities and true potential.

As for the price, an official announcement from the company hasn't been given yet, but according to reports, Intel i3 7350K will be priced around $177. It is already assumed that the chipset will be a popular release from Intel coming from the Kaby Lake lineup. For more updates, check back here on GamenGuide.
