[VideoCardz] Intel preps dual-core i3-7360X for X299, but why?

This is a really bizarre processor. A platform that is designed for high-performance computing might soon get a new CPU… with two cores.

The i3-7360X is a HEDT alternative to i3-7350K, which, by the way, will soon be succeeded by 8350K.

The specs of this new processor are not overwhelming. It’s only 100 MHz faster than 7350K. The turbo clock is 4.3 GHz. The TDP though, skyrockets to 112W.

According to the leaker, the i3-7360X is 1.25% faster than 7350K. The price of 7360X is expected around 1699 Yuans (220 USD), so it’s not cheap.

Source.



The i5-7640X is already bizarre; if this one is actually released we need a new word to describe it.

Most mainstream buys would not touch that cpu, really weird it's on X299 thumb.gif

I don't see the point of this when you can get faster i3 8xxx soon

Or just buy a Ryzen 3 CPU and have basically the same features for a fraction of the cost. I really don't understand what Intel is doing with the "low-end" of X299. Why even have a mainstream lineup if they're doing this?

Okay, I still love dual cores, but this makes absolutely no sense at all, lol...

I totally see the point of the i7s as a stepping point or for those of us who prefer lower core counts and higher clock speeds with the ability to upgrade later, but this is definitely strange.

Seems that Intel is just throwing all the crap it can think of at the wall to see what sticks.

Yes, the i7-7740X is still defensible, it has a relevant number of threads for gaming, has the highest IPC, arguably overclocks better than SB (symbolism is important), and can be used to achieve world record overclocks more easily than on the mainstream Z270.

But the i5-7640X? Some games already need more than it can deliver. And overall, this represents Intel going backwards. Never has Intel had an i5 4C/4T CPU on the enthusiast platform before since they created it back in 2008 with the X58 platform. It's taking prestige away from the platform for no good reason.

It's already bad enough that the i7-7740X, unlike all the first gen quad core i7's, SB-E and IB-E quad cores, doesn't have support for the main platform features, such as triple and quad channel RAM and 36 / 40 lanes of PCIe connectivity, but then you go and have an unprecedented quad core i5, no HT and 6 MB of L2 cache? Why? Anybody wanting to reach a world record can surely afford the extra $100 for the i7, and that's if they are not sponsored anyway; besides, the i7 will most likely be better binned and if the absolute highest clockspeed is the goal, one can always disable HT and cores to get the equivalent of the i5 or the i3.

And then we have this i3.

Who are these things for? I could understand limited edition runs of the i5 and this eventual i3 for world record / LN2 events and such, but seeing the i5 on the shelves in stores around the world as if it was normal doesn't make sense. This doesn't even pass as Intel trying to provide more options after years of stalling because of lack of competition; it simply doesn't make logical sense. I can't find an angle where the i5 makes sense and of course the i3 is just bonkers.

That's literally the only thing I can justify as well, overclocking records possibly due to X299's better power delivery.

Otherwise, there's no point to this thing. It would be like Intel bringing back a Netburst Cedar Mill P4 "limited edition nostalgia" CPU for X299 so people can get ridiculous overclocks from it...

Yeah, they could put a meme on the box saying: "Now with over 9000 Mhz".

(The highest overclock if I'm not mistaken was achieved with a Prescott based Celeron, in the 8 Ghz region).
