Intel Sandy Bridge Extreme Core i7-3930K and Core i7-3820 vs AMD FX-8150, Core i7-2700K and Core i7-990X

CPU Performance

First up for our CPU tests we have Cinebench which offers a synthetic approach to testing . This is followed by our own Photoshop benchmark which looks at real world performance within that application.

Looking first to the Cinebench results we see that the i7-3830K offers by far the highest performance, even eclipsing the 990X CPU which cost significantly more less than a year ago. The i7-3820 scores above the fastest AMD chip and exceeds the performance of the i7-2700K too. Moving to Photoshop the I7-3930K retains its lead however in this application the i7-3820 is reasonably close in performance due to the fact Photoshop is often impacted by the speed of a CPU rather than the number of cores. Essentially the extra MHz on the 3820 balance out the extra cores on the 3930 in this test.
