The main reason is,When will you need 6 Cores in Games? and 12 with HT, Really? The intel cores are so much stronger than Amd cores. ofc the 4930K is a better cpu, But is far from worth it, In my country it cost about 700$, And a I7 350$, I woud rather save those money, Or buy a awesome Case, With good fans, Just my opinion,But your money ;) or getting the Classified edt of the 780/ti

This is an Ivy Bridge based CPU, not Haswell so it has the same socket as Sandy Bridge CPUs.

But it's an extreme (Ivy Bridge E) so if it has the same socket it should be 2011
