Intel Core i3-8350K
The Intel Core i3-8350K has 4 cores and 4 threads. Its base clock is at 4.0 GHz. Its multiplier is unlocked, making it possible to overclock the processor easily.
Based on 16 benchmarks we rate its gaming performance level at 7.42/10. We think it is a reasonable strong processor for games.
For regular application workloads, based on 2 benchmarks we rate its performance level at 4.19/10. It is a rather weak processor for application workloads.

Der Core i3 ist quasi ein alter Core i5-7600K im neuen Gewand, kostet aber nur 15 Euro weniger als der kleinste Sechs-Kerner. Der bietet rundum das modernere Gesamtpaket.
Even still, some games make it difficult to defend the 8350K over Intel’s own i5-8400 – it just depends on whether those applications like frequency or cores. Either way, like the 7350K’s launch price (which did later come down by $30), the 8350K is too expensive for its own good.
This means the choice comes down to whether you prefer higher performance in multi-threaded apps (then you should get the i5-8400); if your workloads don't scale with threads, the i3-8350K is the way to go.
We're aware that we didn't factor in the price of a cooler for the Core i3-8350K in the scatter plots above and that will further reduce its appeal. We don't think we need to get into it too much more, the 8350K is a pretty poor value even if you consider its overclocking capabilities.
