Who said all good things come in 3 fold ? Today we introduce Intel`s youngest offering in the SnB-e lineup. The i7-3820 is not a hexacore like it`s two bigger brothers ; the 3930K and 3960X. But a Quadcore version for the socket 2011 platform. This allows Intel to launch it at a far more affordable price then the two previous mentioned socket 2011 models. Thus making the i7-3820 maybe a perfect replacement CPU for the socket 1366 Bloomfield CPU`s. But the competition is fierce, not from AMD, but within Intel`s own lineup. What has this i7-3820 more to offer then eg a similar priced 2600K SnB ? After a brief introduction about this i7-3820 we are continuing straight to the results to spot any noteworthy performance differences. <"
