So are 3930k is identical to the top Xeon just with 2 cores disabled?

Somewhat (same size, same socket, die photo looks pretty similiar etc), they are all on the same LGA2011 Sandy-E chip, but all the top end chips would be made into Sandy E Xeons, rejects become 3960X(or now the higher binned 3970X)

Here is a 3960X die picture from techreport, Xeon Sandy-E are the same except the two blank core slot are enabled.




Here is a Xeon E5-2600(8 core Sandy-E Xeon) picture from Tom's hardware, see the similarity?

Common Misconception.

Super car 0-60 in around 3.5 seconds

Normal Sports car 0-60 in around 4.5 seconds

Is it worth the extra $200,000? No it's not.

3820 uses it's own die I think. Xeons also have dual QPI. IMO

Close to it. Some caches are disabled, dual QPi is probably cut, lower binned. Basically, yep. IMO

Although, if I had the cash, I would probably get a xeon just for the sake of it. I personally prefer a full die even when a 3930k/3960x can OC and probably have the same or more performance. IMO
