Beginners Guide: How To Install / Remove an Intel Socket LGA2011 CPU

Intel Core i7 3930K (LGA 2011) CPU Review - PCSTATS.com Intel Core i7 3930K (LGA 2011) CPU Review
Thu, Nov 24 2011 | 3:06PM | Filed under: CPU / Processors| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

The new Sandy Bridge-E platform from Intel really is a different kind of beast. When you throw it through those CPU intensive benchmarks, the performance of the new i7 3960X is amazing with performance at stock being better at times than when our 2600k is running at 5.2GHz. The issue with the 3960X isn`t the performance, though; it`s the price. At $1,049 US, there`s nothing cheap about the new 3960X and when you start to throw in a new X79 performance motherboard and a Quad Channel RAM kit, the price of a new Sandy Bridge-E system becomes really expensive. In steps the 3930K, 100MHz lower on both the Base and Turbo clocks and 3MB less Cache are only minor differences. Six cores and Twelve threads means that it lines up with the 3960X alongside the Quad Channel 1600MHz DDR3 RAM support and 130W TDP. There`s one big difference between the 3960X and the 3930K, though; the price. At $599 US the 3930K comes in at considerably less than the 3960X, and really, you can see we`ve otherwise got little difference between the two models."
