The competition in the CPU space has certainly intensified with Intel having released its first unlocked Core i3 processor under the 7th Gen lineup earlier this year and AMD joining in the fray with its Ryzen 3 series. Frankly speaking, the Intel Core i3 7350K was launched way earlier and thus was not intended to compete with any of AMD’s CPUs since Intel had since long gone ahead with its power efficiency and better performance. AMD’s Zen architecture yanked it back into the race and the Ryzen 3 1300X makes for a great budget PC CPU. Having seen what the Ryzen 3 1300X can do, we await with bated breath to see how Intel will respond to it with the 8th Gen desktop CPUs that are to be launched later this year. As of now there is no confirmation but the Intel Core i3 8350K had its specifications leaked last month and it’s reportedly shaping up quite well as a quad core, non-HyperThreaded Coffee Lake-S CPU clocked at 4.0 GHz. These numbers are purely based on rumours but should it turn out to be true, then it’ll be right in line with the Core i7 CPUs based on certain benchmarks. Obviously, the Core i7 with its HyperThreading has a significant advantage across the board, but an i3 CPU equalling i7 CPUs from a couple of years back is big news.
