Hi forum,

I am trying to build a new super powerful PC, and I was wondering what is the most powerful desktop CPU in the market at the moment (Please, Let's ignore the budget matters)?

I have been thinking about getting: Intel Core i7-3930K - What do you think about it?

I read that Intel Core i7-3960X is great, But it is too rich for my blood and I really cannot afford it.

So apart from (i7-3960X), I want to ask you, Is there anything else Intel in the market at the moment that is stronger and faster than (i7-3930K) ?

I would greatly and sincerely appreciate your inputs !

Yeah, the 3930K should be second fastest in multithreaded loads. In single threaded however the i7-3770K is faster.

It depends what you want to use it for

3960X fastest in applications that can use all 12 threads. EG video editing, video transcoding, modelling, simulation. A 3930K is not far behind.

3770K faster than 3960X in applications that can't use more than 8 threads.

3570K just as fast as 3770K in applications that can't use more than 4 threads.

The Intel Xeon E5-2687w which is supported by some workstation boards has 8 cores 16 threads for almost $2000 usd. The 3930K is a great processor if you can afford to compromise a few cores and some threads.

For gaming, the 3570K is the best option.

For heavy workloads, the 3930K is the best option.

For uber workloads, the 3960X is the best option.

For balls to the walls performance (and you DID say to ignore budget constraints...), get this motherboard: http://www.amazon.com/Supermicro-X8QB6-F-Motherboard-LG...
And four of these: http://ark.intel.com/products/53580/Intel-Xeon-Processo...(30M-Cache-2_40-GHz-6_40-GTs-Intel-QPI) - 10 core powa!


You might as well call it 40 core powa in this case.
