The supposed Intel Core i3-7360X is a prototype i3 dual-core processor. The leaked photos shows that the i3-7360X is bigger in size and comes with a thicker PCB compared to the i3-3750K, which is clear enough to know that it is made for the X299 chipset motherboards.

According to the leaker, the i3-7360X will be a HEDT alternative to the i3-7350K. It is stated that it will be 100MHz (1.25%) faster than the i3-7350K, which its turbo clock is expected to be 4.3GHz and a surprisingly high TDP of 112W.

Price wise, the i3-7360X is expected to be priced around 1699 RMB (approximately 220USD).
