Intel 6950X 6900K 6850K CPU Review

AIDA64

If you want raw horsepower and number crunching ability then the more cores the better, as the i7-6950X clearly proves. If you're expecting to read anything else throughout this review other than the obvious demonstration that there is no replacement for displacement, then we don't know what to say.

The interesting model has to be the i7-6900K though, matching the i7-5960X in hardware terms as it does. In the CPU results the old 5960X shows the young guns a thing or two, although it's clear that as the DDR4 support has matured the newer i7-6850K makes better use of it. Or at least AIDA64 does.

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

It will not stop people from buy them, Cause people like Intel over AMD and it's just the way it is.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
