Reasons to consider the
Intel Core i7 4960X

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 22 nm vs 180 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much higher clock speed 3.6 GHz vs 1.1 GHz More than 3.2x higher clock speed
Much more l2 cache 2 MB vs 0.25 MB 8x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.49 GHz vs 1.33 GHz More than 3.2x better overclocked clock speed (Air)
More cores 6 vs 1 5 more cores; run more applications at once
More threads 12 vs 1 11 more threads
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.33 GHz vs 1.1 GHz Around 4x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
More l2 cache per core 0.33 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core Around 35% more l2 cache per core
