Did you remember that our own $2550 System Builder Marathon machine from the third quarter of 2013 had a six-core CPU? Sandra does. The same machine chews through math much faster than the highly-overclocked Chronos.
Lenovo's Erazer has the same six-core Sandy Bridge-E-based CPU. However, a less aggressive overclock puts it within striking distance of Origin PC’s much more-tuned quad-core Chronos.
The six-core machines also have quad-channel memory controllers. Among the machines with two memory channels, the Chronos enjoys the advantage of DDR3-1866 CAS 9.
