Intel Core i7-3930K Review

CineBench R11.5

The heavy demands that rendering place upon the CPU are a good test of the pure calculation power of the i7-3930K. At stock it's only .3 Pts behind the i7-3960X and when overclocked only .6 Pts behind. In anyones book that is amazingly close for a processor that's nearly half the price.

POV-Ray

Utilising the different rendering philosophy behind the Freeware POV-Ray, the results remain the same with the Core i7-3930K being a very fine performer indeed.

3960x to me is just for bragging rights, "oooooo looook, i've got the best 2011 processor in my rig hehe"

The 3960x is not worth it, 3930k is just perfect Quote
