  • i7 4930k Benchmarked

    I did some quick benchmarks of my lightly overclocked 4930k. I plan to upgrade from 12.04 to 13.10 this weekend. We'll see how the numbers change. Its a nice processor, but overkill. I came across some gift cards and money this Xmas so I figured I'd snag one before the x79 platform is depricated. I've also got 32GB RAM in the mail. Woot! I have a Samsung 840 Pro 512GB SSD on my desk here at work. Perhaps I'll see if boss man will let me take it home ;-)

    I also have a 4930K workstation at work. I run 5 VMs continuously and have no speed issues.

    I upped the frequency to 4.5GHz to get a better comparison with the 3960X running at 4.5GHz. The 4930K did nicely!

    Any other suggested test?

      I'm holidng off on my upgrade from 12.04. When the next LTS is released I'll do it. This is my workstation.

      Also, @ 4.5GHz I've been dropping my initial voltage of 1.39V I'm now at 1.33.

      Life is so exciting!
