So I have a question. I know the price on the pentium is a lot cheaper but performance wise something doesn't make any sense. So if this $70 pentium at 3GHz and this $120 i3 at 3.3GHz use the same architecture and the same cache why is the i3 21% faster in tests but has a 9% faster clock?

You are not Intel. Also understand that you NEED to start a sentence with a capital letter! It's so hard to find good toms hardwarers these days.
