The Xeon will still destroy the i3 in heavily threaded workloads like video rendering, but in everything that can't make use of at least 8 threads it will be slower.

So the Xeon is the better choice, but if you upgraded the i3 to an i7-7700K, you'd beat the Xeon again while getting a lower power consumption. So it depends on whether you'd be willing to upgrade the i3 platform in the near future or not.

thanks for the quick response i got my eye on ryzen 7 1700 but for the next three months more or less i'll be using one and then sell it also so i think i keep the Xeon.

The Ryzen will in turn be a lot better, than an i7-7700K at multithreaded workloads, so if you plan on getting a completely new system anyway, that's what you should do, and then keeping the Xeon until then instead of the i3 makes more sense.

I recommended the i3 -> i7 upgrade because I thought you wouldn't want to spend much - if anything at all - on upgrading, the i7 would be the most cost-effective way, but weaker than the Ryzen.

Thank you very much ZRace, i'll do that.

 
As a person who owns a x5690 (work computer on it right now) I would take the i3 and sell the older xeon and use that money to upgrade to the 7700k.

Running my x5690 at 4.28Ghz a i5 6600k and i7 7700k both beat it at the same speed.
