This time we're going to check gaming performance of two LGA 2011 processors. The first CPU is a quad core i7-3820 which runs at 3.60 GHz default and comes with ten megabyte L3 cache. The second CPU is a core i7-3930K which does 3.2 GHz and features twelve megabyte L3 cache. At this point we're quite curious what might be the difference in gaming performance between these quite different CPUs.
