Core i5-9500 vs Core i7-7700K | Hardlimit Benchmark Central

Core i5-9500 vs Core i7-7700K

Both Core i5-9500 and Core i7-7700K have an identical monothread performance although their multithread performance are slightly different. 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.
