Intel Core i3-7350K "Kaby Lake" CPU Review (Page 2)

Intel Core i7-7350K


There is nothing really to mention about the CPU's size or shape; it's pretty much identical to every other Kaby Lake CPU. I should mention that Intel sent us an engineering sample, but retail samples will have identical performance.


Side by side with the 7700K, the two CPUs look identical. I had to double check which CPU was which since they have the same base clock speed.


There are some minor differences on the underside. The 7700K's gold pads have a deeper color, but that might be just because of when they were made and what fab they came from (or maybe it has more gold, but I can't say for sure). There are more SMD components on the 7700K, but then again the 7350K has a TDP of 60W while the 7700K has a TDP of 91W, two extra cores, and double the L3 cache.

Test Setup


All the overclocking was done with the Noctua NH-D15 and only a single fan.
