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

Core i7-4790K vs Core i3-8100

Both Core i7-4790K and Core i3-8100 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.
