Intel Core i7 5960X Extreme Edition Review

Posted on Friday, August 29 2014 @ 18:19:23 CEST by


"It's good to finally have Intel refresh the Extreme line up and take that step up to an eight core processor to do it. There are distributed computing crunchers just salivating at the performance potential that comes along with the added four threads that can be brought to bare in their crunching farms. But alas that's not the only place you are likely to see massive performance gains. When it comes to content creation and video editing, the Core i7 5960X is going to deliver that next level of performance when it is able to fully utilize all of its cores simultaneously. In my testing I found that when utilized, the eight core 5960X is by far the fastest solution when compared to a Core i7 4960X, Intel's Haswell quad core mainstream offerings, and the best that AMD currently has to offer. When it cannot utilize all that core compute power and run in single thread mode it is hampered by the low clock speed, and does not deliver the impact that I see when pushing all eight cores; this is pretty much the expected outcome."
