Handbrake isn't the best optimized application when it comes to multiple threads, which allows Ivy Bridge with it's architectural improvements to place itself above even the Core i7-980X.

|The performance test:||Built-in performance test|
In pass 1 of x264 we once again see a good ranking for the Core i7-3770K, which can almost touch the six core processors territory.
But Core i7-3770K drops significantly in the heavier pass 2 test and lets the old six-core warrior, the Core i7-980X, to run past itself. The result is still the best within the quad-core processor territory though.
