Intel Core i7-3930K Sandy Bridge-E Processor Review
Gaming Related Tests
These tests aren't really GAME testing but are more synthetic gaming-related tests. For that reason these benchmarks are done using the GeForce GTX 285 graphics card installed and are meant to continue testing the x86 CPU performance of the benchmarked platforms.
A reliable and popular benchmark, 3DMark Vantage can provide a good insight into overall gaming performance of a system.
The CPU results from our 3DMark Vantage test are showing the Core i7-3930K to again be just slightly behind the Core i7-3960X.
Valve Source Particle Simulation
Valve released this particle simulation test a while back for benchmarking platforms and CPUs.
Valve Source Map Compilation
More of a developer test than gamer test, this benchmark is indicative of how long it takes a system to compile a map.
More of the same here, though the original Sandy Bridge processsors are able to hold there own.
