Intel Core i7-3930K Review
The heavy demands that rendering place upon the CPU are a good test of the pure calculation power of the i7-3930K. At stock it's only .3 Pts behind the i7-3960X and when overclocked only .6 Pts behind. In anyones book that is amazingly close for a processor that's nearly half the price.
Utilising the different rendering philosophy behind the Freeware POV-Ray, the results remain the same with the Core i7-3930K being a very fine performer indeed.
