Ehhh I'm not feeling the money spent on a Xeon when I won't see the gains. Nice to see Intel sticking with true 8 cores though. AMD dreams they can say that

You made the point jona2125. All depends what you'll do w/ it, because at the contrary of most people here, there some that use their computers for other things than gaming (yeah that's possible).
I want the 3930K for 3d/dev mainly, but i want to see the bench before, because to see a 2600K beat a 990x even on multithreaded apps is a pain. Of course not on all, especially on number crunching the 990x kills it.
So in clear if it's not for purely gaming, go for it. There's many multithreaded apps for this beast
And if you keep all the rest of the stuff it's an $950 upgrade (if you don't take a RE4), the cost of a custom loop for some.
