Intel 6950X 6900K 6850K CPU Review

Passmark

Passmark seems to suffer from the same issue that PC Mark does, namely that it doesn't really matter what CPU you have as the score relies upon clock speed more than pure thread count. How else do you explain the i7-6950X at the foot of the graph? Even looking through the scores there doesn't appear to be that much between the three CPUs in terms of sub-scores, just that the headline Passmark one loves a 4+ GHz processor.

total fail intel looking other sites test review shows 6800-6950 +2% sometimes -1-2% performance vs 3930-5930K and this after 4 years , and the 6950X would be good for 1000-1100$ max. Meaning you getting the same performance that was in 2012 =)Quote

Nice review, although I'm quite happy with my 5930K boosting to 4.0 GHz on 1.017 volts Quote

I think i'd just rather get something like the the E5 2680v4 for about £100 more, as that is effectively its closest price competitor. Anyone buying the Broadwell E for anything other than compute reasons is clearly doing it for exorbitant e-peen reasons, not logical reasoning.Quote
