Obviously we only have a couple of cores to play with, so the two little Core i3's wont stand a chance in our graphs against the full-fat Skylake Core i7 CPUs. This is all about whether they still have enough performance to make them worth your investment, and if they can crunch the numbers fast enough to keep a hungry nVidia 980 satisfied.

Low power figures might be a good headline grabbing tool, and indeed if you look solely at the Core i3 then obviously they draw less power than a processor with more cores. However, stick them in our Skylake test rig and measure the power draw at the wall and you can see that things are much closer than you might think. All the modern Intel CPUs barely sip at your electricity, it's everything else that does the damage.
