Benchmark Results


Product image

3DMark performance was reasonably tightly packed but when we move to real world gaming there is a different result. When moving from CPU to CPU the performance is varied and interestingly we see a similar trend to some of the earlier results in this article. The i7-3820 for example performs around the same level as the 2700K with the i7-3930K offering comparable performance to the (previously) more expensive 990X.
