    Purported Intel Kaby Lake Core i3-7350K benchmarks emerge

    Geekbench scores for this 4.2GHz unlocked i3 popped up online last week.

    So you are better with new i3 than old i5? Is that Intel feels Zen heat?
    The more you live, less you die. More you play, more you die. Isn't it great.

    More than likely Intel will price it for its performance rather than its predecessor's price point.

    So we'll end up with i5-priced i3s, K priced non-K i5s, i7 priced i5 Ks, and 28 lane E priced i7s.

    And when the Extreme version comes out the price will be "lol that's not a price that's a phone number"

    I'd still rather have 4 slower cores than 2 faster cores going forward. Games and apps are becoming increasingly multithreaded and its quite computationally slow to swap threads. I expect a real life scenario would show the i5 doing far better!

    The sad thing is that we have already got those prices. I never thought I would see the unlocked i5 at £230+. That is where the i7 4770k launched at and is obscene. I really hope AMD can pull something out of the bag and give Intel some competition that forces prices down. Unfortunately I have a nasty feeling that if Zen is any good that they will be pricing them around Intels prices.

    Never really trusted geekbench if I'm honest....

    Personally I'll wait until I see some cinebench numbers before saying a 2+2 hyperthreaded core i3 is as fast as a pure 4 core i5 cpu when it comes to multithreaded performance.

    Re: Purported Intel Kaby Lake Core i3-7350K benchmarks emerge

    I've read that running on the hyperthreaded (ie. the non-physical core of the pair) only gives about 30% of the performance of running on a real core.

    On the other hand, in any real-world scenarios a hyperthreaded 2-core usually seems to achieve around 90% of the performance of an equivalent chip with 4-cores and no HT.

    Give that that has always been a very good reason not to offer an unlocked i3, it's right to wonder exactly what has changed now. So it looks like it is a bit of interference thrown out now because there must be some nervousness at Intel about the impending Zen release. I wonder what else Intel are holding up their sleeves just in case (other than price drops)?
