Ivy Bridge is a great chip and actually out-performs the Sandy Bridge-E Core i7-3820 by roughly 9 % due to a more efficient architecture, clock for clock Ivy wins. However, a quad core will not outperform a hexa-core such as the 3930k when it comes to content creation jobs that can stress more than four cores (video editing, encoding, etc). If you compute for a living, a hexa core is worth it.
