    With my last benchmark being about Ivy Bridge Core i7 HT performance in games, and the future one being Skylake Core i7 HT performance in games, ive decided to run something of the ordinary, and yet refreshing. Time to time a acquire different processors, since i am assembling computers for selling (this is not my job). I've got a Core i3 3240 and Core i5 3570 atm. I've decided to compare these two and see how much of a bottleneck does Core i3 make for high-end gaming when compared to the Core i5.

    TEST SETUP

    Intel Core i3 3250 3.4 GHz
    Intel Core i5 3570 3.4 - 3.8 GHz
    Asus P8Z77-V LX
    Crucial 2X8 GB DDR3 1600 MHz C8
    Crucial M500 120 GB Windows drive
    WD RE4 1 TB game drive
    Gigabyte GeForce GTX980 G1 4 GB

    Core i3 has speedstep and C1E enabled, thermal throttling disabled.
    Core i5 has speedstep, C1E and turbo boost enabled, thermal throttling disabled.

    Windows 7 Pro 64 bit
    NVIDIA Forceware 355.82

    All settings set to max at 1920x1200. No AA is used.

    thanks for your effort, but you aren't to go at math huh?

    for example hitman absolution:
    i5 min fps = 78
    i3 min fps = 58

    i3= base, so 58 fps = 100%
    i5= faster, so 78 fps = 134%
    (58*1,34)

    so the i5 produces 34% higher min fps, not 25% ;)
