Core 2 Quad Q8400 vs Core i3-4030U | Hardlimit Benchmark Central

Core 2 Quad Q8400 vs Core i3-4030U

Both Core 2 Quad Q8400 and Core i3-4030U monothread performance are pretty similar although their multithread performance are pretty different. These two models were released in very different times which doesn't explain their performance similarity in monothread performance so we should check if they belong to the same range.
