The Core i7-4960X is clocked slightly higher than the i7-4770K so it isn’t surprising to find both delivering similar performance. Thanks to a 300MHz frequency bump the i7-4960X was slightly faster than the i7-3960X.
Again we see that the Core i7-4960X and i7-4770K delivered virtually the same results, making them slightly faster than the lower clocked i7-3960X.
Finally we have Battlefield 3 and here the Core i7-4960X pulled 1fps ahead of the i7-4770K, making it 2fps faster than the i7-3960X.
