Unboxing video of the Intel Core i7-3930K Sandy Bridge-E 3.2GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) LGA 2011 130W Six-Core Processor, towards the end it is also compared with an Intel P166 Processor from 15/16 years ago. As can be seen the overall footprint / surface area hasn’t changed that much and in the case of the i7 3930K I have heard of many people saying that it is quite large in size, especially in comparisson to the 2600K.
