so why would u guys get a 4930k or a 3920k or a 4960x over a 4770k and it seem between them the price is huge but performance is not.
Because a computer does a lot more than just play games and users that run productivity software or work with video editing and encoding for example the 4930K has a noticeable performance advantage over 4 core processors. Also these reviews you're looking at are testing with one or two GPU's at the most, the gaming advantage from the LGA 2011 platform comes from the additional PCI-E lanes and you can't test that without a three or four way setup.
A lot of these 4960x/4930K reviews aren't even worth looking at past one or two benches and the overclocking and power consumption results as most don't test that much real world software, they use a lot of meaningless synthetic tests, and the games they choose are almost entirely GPU bound and typically time demos at that that don't accurately represent real world gameplay.Edited by burningrave101 - 9/3/13 at 11:15am
