Intel is preparing their new Core i9 range of processors, and while the flagship Core i9-7980XE gets all of the attention, there will be a 16C/32T chip at $1699, the Core i9-7960X.

Now there's some results of the upcoming Core i9-7960X on Geekbench, but the new 16C/32T processor isn't shaping up so well, scoring 5238 in single-core results, while hitting 33,672 in multi-core. Comparing this against Intel's current Core i9-7900X (10C/20T) which has less cores and threads, the single-core performance is superior at 5390, and so is the multi-core score at 33,945.

The upcoming 7960X does beat AMD's upcoming Ryzen ThreadRipper 1950X (16C/32T @ 3.4GHz) with its single-core score of 4074 and multi-core score of 26,768. Both the 7960X engineering sample and early sample of the ThreadRipper 1950X have their CPU clocks much lower than the 3.4GHz on the 7900X (even though it has less cores than the other two processors).
