Intel offers the Core i3-7360X processor for the X299 platform

If you thought there wasn’t more information for Intel’s X299 platform, you’d be wrong. It seems that Intel will provide the Core i3-7360X processor with 2 cores and 4 threads for its new platform. After introducing the first Core i5 processor for this platform (Intel used lower-end processors for the first time in its X-series chipsets Now a processor from the Core i3 family has been introduced with a very small gap for Intel’s high-end platform.

The Intel Core i3-7360X processor is about to enter the market at a strange time. Intel is launching its 14-, 16-, and 18-core processors in the next few weeks, while the Coffee Lake family of desktop processors is also set to launch early this month. It is October. In the meantime, offering the Core i3-7360X processor with 2 cores and 4 cores, while the new Core i3 processors are supposed to have more cores and cores. (8th generation desktop processors) seems pointless.

  • The possibility of the release of Cannon Lake Intel chips will be delayed until the end of 2018
  • Intel 8-core processor to Z390 motherboard will be released in the second half of 2018

Core i3-7360X processor from The Kaby Lake X family uses 14nm manufacturing technology. The structure of this processor consists of two cores and 4 threads and is similar to the Core i3-7350K processor specific to the 200 series platform. The difference between Core i3-7360X processor and Core i3-7350K is in working frequency and power consumption. This processor will enter the market with a base frequency of 4 and a boost frequency of 4.3 GHz. Intel’s new product uses 4 MB of level 3 cache memory and 16 lanes of PCIe. This processor consumes 112 watts of power output; While the power consumption of the Core i3-7350K processor is about 60 watts. This power consumption seems reasonable compared to other Kaby Lake X chips.

In terms of price and performance, rumors indicate that the Core i3-7360X processor will be sold at a price of $229. This price is much higher than the Core i3-7350K processor, which costs around $170. In terms of performance, this chip will be only 1.25% faster than the 7350K processor, so in terms of functionality, we can say that this processor is the same as the 7350K, but for a different platform. In the table below, you can see the comparison of the 7360X processor with the 7350K:

This work of Intel seems completely confusing and strange; But you should know that Intel chips with low core counts on high-end platforms are good at overclocking memory and liquid nitrogen overclocking. Considering that memory manufacturers will introduce new modules with a frequency of 4600 MHz; The KB Lake X platform is a suitable platform for reaching maximum speed using these modules. Therefore, it can be said that the presentation of these chips is not completely without purpose; But their sales market will be very limited. For those who can wait a little, the next generation of Core i3 processors for the desktop category will benefit from more cores, higher operating frequency and lower power consumption.
