Hey all, I don't know much about recent Intel CPUs but I just got a i3-10105F to replace my old i7 3770, all the benchmarks I saw seemed to indicate it'd be similar performance to an i7 7700. But when I did my own gaming benchmarks my new i3-10105F seems slower than my old i7 3770 overall.

Old system specs are: i7 3770 CPU R9 290x GPU Asrock Z68 motherboard 16GB DDR3 1600MHz New system specs are: i3 10105F R9 290x MSI B460 motherboard 16GB DDR4 2666MHz - motherboard won't allow RAM to run faster Looking at the CPUs compared: https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/compare.html?productIds=65719,203474 The new CPU is also 4 cores, 8 threads, 3.7GHz vs 3.4GHz base, 4.4GHz vs 3.9GHz turbo, 14nm vs 22nm and 7 generations newer. The only drawback is 6MB cache vs 8MB cache. Can anyone think of anything I should look for?
