Core i7-4790K vs Core i5-8500T | Hardlimit Benchmark Central

Core i7-4790K vs Core i5-8500T

Both Core i7-4790K and Core i5-8500T monothread performance are pretty similar besides their multithread performance are pretty similar. These two models were released four years apart which doesn't explain their performance similarity in monothread performance so we should check if they belong to the same range.
