Intel 6950X 6900K 6850K CPU Review

CineBench

CineBench has always been a fantastic tool for testing the raw number crunching capabilities of your CPU. With CineBench R11.5 being a part of our test suites for a long time it's also a cool way of comparing a huge array of processors. For example, the 6-core Core i7-990X, once a range-topping thousand pound offering, gave us just shy of 12 CPU Pts. A total matched by the Quad-Core i7-6700K and whopped into insignificance by the six cores of the i7-6850K. The pure clock speed and core numbers might be similar, but the reality is anything but. The benefits of modern architecture and the improvements Intel can bring to each generation.

Unsurprisingly the more recent CineBench R15 has fewer CPUs in the graph and thus the latest Broadwell-E models dominate proceedings. The current i7-5960X still makes a great showing though, so if you've only just splashed out the price of a car on that particular offering you shouldn't be too disheartened. Everyone else, get saving.

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
