AGree! Now seriously... Gnight for now! Riiiight. Its core dependent. Look at the Physics score... so is vantage, and 06. Oof not really...http://www.anandtech.com/show/5276/intel-core-i7-3820-review-285-quadcore-sandy-bridge-e 3820 also has a 200 mhz clockspeed ADVANTAGE, NO? Perhaps, or it could be ~5% faster than Sbe clock for clock like IB was to SB... though with how long its taking to release, it damn well better be a lot faster than that! 50 points is negligible at best.. margin of error easily there.. same shhhhhhhhhhhhhh different piles with slight more cache ok for reals.. night!
