System Builder Marathon, Q3 2013: $2550 Performance PC

Results: Productivity

Our entire productivity suite is optimized for multi-core processors, so the system I'm presenting takes the top position up and down the charts. Scaling is a little better in Visual Studio 2010 compared to ABBYY FineReader, but the Core i7-3930K really needed a better overclock to build upon its dominance.
