After the excellent but ridiculously pricey Core i7 3960X, Intel is back with another high end processor on socket 2011, the Core i7 3820, still an excellent performer but much less expensive.

The Intel Core i7 3820 is the poor relative of the very pricey Core i7 3960X. Both these processors are part of the Sandy Bridge-E family and include the same features (Hyper-threading, Turbo) but differ in their running clocks and, most importantly, number of cores.
