I was looking to build my wife a system and thinking maybe going Intel (I've always been an AMD guy because I am cheap ha ha) and I was looking at the Intel Core i3-7100 Kaby Lake Dual-Core 3.9 GHz and checked it Passmark score and it was 6038. I then checked the Passmark on my AMD FX-6300 and it was 6341. Is the dual core Intel really almost as fast as my six core AMD? I know the i3 has four threads but still I am surprised. The power consumption is so much lower on the i3 also. Is the i3 really just as good as the 6-core AMD with multi threaded tasks?
