Core i3-8100 vs Core i7-4790K | Hardlimit Benchmark Central

Core i3-8100 vs Core i7-4790K

Both Core i3-8100 and Core i7-4790K monothread performance are pretty similar besides their multithread performance are pretty similar. These two models were released three years apart which doesn't explain their performance similarity in monothread performance so we should check if they belong to the same range.
