Core i3-3217U vs Core 2 Duo E7400 | Hardlimit Benchmark Central

Core i3-3217U vs Core 2 Duo E7400

Both Core i3-3217U and Core 2 Duo E7400 monothread performance are pretty similar besides their multithread performance are pretty similar. These two models were released four years apart which doesn't explain their performance similarity in monothread performance so we should check if they belong to the same range.
