Intel 6950X 6900K 6850K CPU Review

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.
