You are wrong on that one. It is a different die.
From AnandTech's review
Quote:
The Core i7 3820 is the first (and only) quad-core Sandy Bridge E CPU. It's so new that the chip isn't even available for sale nor will it be until early 2012. Unlike the relationship between the 3960X and 3930K, the 3820 is an entirely new die.

The chip features four Sandy Bridge cores and is paired with a 10MB L3 cache, giving it a slight advantage over the highest end LGA-1155 Sandy Bridge CPUs on the market today. The result is a die that's bigger than a regular SNB but significantly smaller than a 6-core SNB-E:

It's either wait 5 days for the 3930k and get a 7970. or no graphics card with just a 3960x
Choice is clear to me

I hear ya on that one! The 3960X is terrible value for money but I have plenty to spare. I'll be getting two 7970 DCUII's as soon as anybody gets stock...

"Unlike the relationship between the 3960X and 3930K, the 3820 is an entirely new die." Source

"Interestingly, this quad-core SNB-E part is not simply a chip with more cores disabled but instead is a completely new die built on the same 32nm process. While the Core i7-3960X and i7-3930K have a transistor count of 2.27 billion and a die size of about 435 mm2, the Core i7-3820 is based around 1.27 billion transistors and a 294 mm2 die - a significant reduction.

I'm going after the same cards for my pure Corsair and Asus build. 1st priority is to to beat the world record of F5 pushes/min on newegg for that 3930k bruce.gif

3930k was already in stock this morning at Newegg around 10 am CST. Sold out within <5-10 minutes

I've got my account set up for auto notification and I haven't heard a word from the Egg so far....

Newegg auto notification is useless for items that sell out within a few minutes. Unless the item stays in stock for a while you'll never get it.

For benching I'd go with 3930k.
