Let's have a look at some newly leaked performance benchmarks of Intel's 10-core Broadwell-E i7 6950K CPU, which has been compared to Intel's current X99 flagship CPU, the i7 5960X at the same clock speeds.

When moving from the i7 5960X to the i7 6950X the single core CPU performance decreases from 160 points to 151 points in Cinebench R15, but the total CPU performance increases from 1592 points to 1904 points. 

With both CPUs running at 4.0GHz this shows a decrease in IPC with Broadwell-E, but an increase in total performance thanks to the CPUs high core count.

Using the Intel Extreme Tuning Utility, which has a built-in benchmarking tool, the 4.0GHz 5960X achieves a score of 2001 points and the 4.0GHz i7 6950X achieves a score of 2354 points.

In AIDA 64's Cache and memory test the newer i7 6950X is shown to have faster L1, L2, and L3 Cache, with the i7 6950X also showing some slightly faster read and write memory performance. 

These benchmarks show that Broadwell-E may not deliver much in the way of IPC improvements compared to existing Haswell-E CPUs, but there are improvements in memory performance and overall performance thanks to a higher core count of the i7 6950X. 

Hopefully, Intel will release their Broadwell-E CPUs soon as I would love to test one of them for myself. I wonder how well these new 10 core processors will overclock, as the 4.0GHz overclock shown here is rather low compared to what we are used to seeing.

depend on whether or not you need the extra performance and cores.

Wait until reviews are up and people can advise you better.Quote

Until we have done our own confirmed testing it would be wrong of us to advise you to purchase a product that isnt even out yet.Quote
