PC Mark 8 and CineBench R15

Intel Core i7-5820K Review

PC Mark 8

Thankfully PC Mark 8 has been overhauled to the point we can put it back into our benchmark suite, and the results for the Intel Core i7-5920K are encouraging.

CineBench r15

Our CineBench r15 results are thin, so it's no surprise to discover the extra cores of the i7-5960X capable of beating out the six cored i7-5820K. Disappointing that the overclock can't bridge some of that gap, especially with the 1GHz improvement on the i7-5960X, coupled to the two extra cores, more than doubles the i7-5820K.

Pretty underwhelming considering it is Intel's first six core CPU in the low end of the "extreme" series of CPUs.

It is pretty much the same story as it was between the 3820K vs 3770K as it is now with the 5820K vs the 4770/90K, except the 5820K has two more physical cores so you would of expected there to be even more of a gap in performance than there is.Quote

Wow that is really surprising, I chose to invest in the 5930K sadly the rig isn't assembled yet. But if I remember correctly other reviewers had the 5820 outperform the 5930, of course it wasn't Tom who did the testing :-P but I don't hope it's the case cause I'd feel like I have wasted a lot of money .Quote

Excellent vid guv, I hope Intel are listening... "sort ya damn speed binning out!", I do see the need for it, but there is a limit surely, this chip seems very underwhelming indeed. They could have chopped a couple of cores off kept the pci lanes and released their first x99 introduction quad core at a friendlier price, I think it would have been better rather than a slightly watered down 5930K..

Kudos on the out takes, made my day. Quote

It's very expensive for what it is really.

I was kind of disappointed with this tbh; I was hoping for a high clocked Quad Core like the 4820k for cheaper than the hex cores, but that 3.3GHz stock clock speed is a bit on the low side. Quote
