1) LGA1155 is money saving and i7 3770K is the top processor in it. There will be no new processors for it. Downside is that it is limited to 32GB RAM.
2) LGA2011 is much more expensive. But it is planned to develop new processors for it for another year or so. And it may have 64GB RAM and have better bandwith with it.
Right now I have a budget for 3770K or 3820. They are almost the same cost. But which is better? Or how much faster than 3770K will be 3930K (for future planing)? It is understandable that between one socket the better proccesor will show the better result. But what about different sockets? And is it important to have good bandwith with RAM?
Maybe some LGA2011 users with top CPUs may share a project with benchmark result on there system. And then I may render the same project on other systems for compare.

(no need to scrap my 980X for a while )
APG use the max CPU-power only on parts of the process. Most of the process it relies on RAM/swappping to the pagefile/disk-access etc.
I would rather spend some money on maximum amount of RAM and on SSD-raid/Revodrive then the latest most high-end CPU.
