I seriously think why Intel made a big price gap like that is because that chip is for real (intense) processing purpose - meaning if you do a lot of video editing, processing, virtual machines and extreme calculations then you must have that kind of processor in one rig.

I guess that's why Intel called it "Extreme". But if you can afford it and you must be bored with the 920, I'd say go for it.

The only thing noticeable on that chip compared to its predecessors is the heat/power it consumes. Maybe..... maybe a bit more of performance...
