Core i5-3210M vs Core i7-4720HQ | Hardlimit Benchmark Central

Core i5-3210M vs Core i7-4720HQ

Both Core i5-3210M and Core i7-4720HQ 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.
