As expected, given its spec, the Core i7-3930K makes the Core i7-3960X entirely dispensable. Why spend an extra €350 or €400 for such a small gain in performance (between 4 and 5%)?The Core i7-3930K is therefore a choice cut for anyone looking for a...

Core i7-3960X is undeniably fast. But at more than £800, it’s hardly an option for most enthusiasts. We got our hands on the Core i7-3930K and Core i7-3820 to gauge their overclocked performance and determine if they’re able to best the flagship part....

The Intel Core i7 3930K is the cheaper alternative to the top-end Sandy Bridge E processor. But then many second hand cars are cheaper than the top-end Sandy Bridge E processor. At nearly £500 it's still an expensive CPU, but currently it's the only...

In 2011, we expected to see three major events: Intel LGA 1155 in the beginning, AMD Bulldozer in the middle and Intel LGA 2011 closer to the end. The first happened as planned (quad-core processors for LGA 1155 arrived in January, with dual-core...
