    Why would an I3 bottleneck a 980m mobility GPU?

    People have mentioned an I3 would bottleneck it. I am confused why people are so content about getting I5s and I7s. Does it have something to do with the cache size in the CPU unit? Also, can you speed up that cache? Is it done by overclocking the whole CPU unit Cheers.
