Default Intel Releases First Sandy Bridge-E Quad-Core: i7-3820

When Intel released its first Sandy Bridge-E processors this past November, it was expected that we'd see the first quad-core variant appear in February. Lo and behold, that has held true. The Core i7-3820 is a 3.6GHz offering that lobs off two cores and four threads. It shares its max Turbo frequency with the i7-3960X at 3.90GHz, and despite the drop of cores, it also shares the same TDP of 130W.

Read the rest of our post and then discuss it here!
Intel Core i7-3960X, GIGABYTE G1.Assassin 2, Kingston 16GB DDR3-2133, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 2GB
Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB SSD (OS, Apps), WD VR 1TB (Games), Corsair 1000HX, Corsair H70 Cooler
Corsair 800D, Dell 2408WFP 24", ASUS Xonar Essence STX, Gentoo (KDE 4.11. 3.12 Kernel)
