Core i7-4790K vs Core i5-7300U | Hardlimit Benchmark Central

Core i7-4790K vs Core i5-7300U

Both Core i7-4790K and Core i5-7300U monothread performance are pretty similar although their multithread performance are pretty 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.
