I'm running a Intel Pentium j2900 @ 2.41ghz from 2014 and that's the best intel can do in 6 years 0.5 more ghz?

That is just the base clock. It boosts quite a bit.

I have an i5-9400f with a base clock of 2.9 ghz but it runs mostly at 3.9 ghz all cores and while sitting on the desktop or just browsing it can go upto 4.1 ghz (single core) which is the boost clock. Anyway, the clock speed is not everything. There is a big architectural difference and that is where the increase in performance comes from. Don't just always look at the clock speeds.

You're neglecting the extra 4 cores, HT and IPC improvements from a newer architecture, but sure let's go with that...
