Intel Core i7-3820 Processor Review - Quad-Core Sandy Bridge-E under $300 - Processors 15
All of the SNB-E parts and the i7-2600K come right in at about the same performance level with a single thread at work but the i7-3820 keeps a moderate lead over the Core i7-2600K with all cores in action.

POV-Ray 3.7 Beta

POV-Ray has long been the poster child for multi-threaded processing and rendering.


The Core i7-3820 has about a 5% edge of the 2600K and a nearly 10% edge over the FX-8150.


Blender is a free open source 3D engine that is a popular choice amongst college students and small developers.

The performance of the Core i7-3820 and i7-2600K are again matching up pretty evenly.
