Core i3-9100 vs Core i7-7700

Both Core i3-9100 and Core i7-7700 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.
