Reasons to consider the
Intel Core i7 3930K

Report a correction
Is unlocked Yes vs No Somewhat common; An unlocked multiplier allows for easier overclocking
Much newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 65 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Higher clock speed 3.2 GHz vs 2.5 GHz Around 30% higher clock speed
Significantly more l3 cache 12 MB vs 2 MB 6x more l3 cache; more data can be stored in the l3 cache for quick access later
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.67 GHz vs 2.56 GHz More than 80% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Much more l3 cache per core 2 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 4x more l3 cache per core
More threads 12 vs 4 Three times as many threads
More cores 6 vs 4 2 more cores; run more applications at once
Newer Nov, 2011 vs Apr, 2008 Release date over 3 years later
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.67 GHz vs 2.5 GHz More than 85% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
