Intel 7th Generation Core i3 7350K Processor Review


Intel 7th Generation Core i3 7350K Testing:

3DMark: The just-released version of Futuremark's popular 3DMark suite is designed to let a wider range of the user base make a comparative analysis of the gaming prowess of their systems from entry level PCs, to notebooks, and extreme gaming PCs.



  • Default test settings
  • Time Spy Score
  • Physics Test



Hitman (2016):

Hitman (2016) is a stealth action-adventure game played from a third-person perspective. Hitman (2016) is the sixth iteration of this series and acts as a prequel to the entire series, while also taking part after the events in Hitman: Absolution. The game was developed by IO interactive and published by Square Enix, with a release date for PC in March 2016 for the first part of the episodic content. To deliver the visuals, the game uses a modified Glacier 2 game engine. This title takes advantage of the ability to run in DirectX 12 mode for users who have adopted Windows 10.


  • DirectX 12
  • Level Of Detail = Ultra
  • SMAA
  • Texture Quality = High
  • Texture Filter = 16x Anisotropic
  • SSAO = On
  • Shadow Maps = Ultra
  • Shadow Resolution = High





Tom Clancy's The Division:

Tom Clancy's The Division faced an uphill battle to become the highest opening day grossing title in Ubisoft's history. Built as an open-world, third-person shooter video game, Ubisoft Massive developed the game with some assistance from Red Star Entertainment for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, with Ubisoft taking care of the publishing. Ubisoft Massive developed and built the Snowdrop game engine specifically for The Divison due to the need for an intelligent engine to manage the dynamic global illumination, destruction, detail, and visual effects.




  • DirectX 11
  • Ultra Preset
  • Shadow Quality = High
  • Post FX AA = Off
  • Temporal AA = Supersampling
  • Snow = Yes
  • Fog = Ultra
  • Anisotropic Filtering = 16x





When you get to gaming, the video card is going to present another wrinkle to the tests. Traditionally, we see that some games deliver a higher level of FPS than others when you change out the processor. In the Time Spy testing, it's clear that the lower Physics scores impact the overall Time Spy score when compared to other processors. In The Division, we see a smaller FPS swing with the Core i3 7350K than I do in the Hitman (2016) tests, where it looks like the CPU performance and core count are utilized to a greater degree, therefore impacting the FPS delivered by the system. Overall, you can still get a good gaming experience with the Core i3 7350K. When the system becomes GPU bound, the gap will shrink between the processors and not show such a dramatic swing in performance.
