While the 5960X is still king with its 8 cores and 16 threads, the 6700K isn't a wimp, and there are minor gains over prior generations at the same clock speeds. ScienceMark is showing that the 6700K loses in cryptography to the previous generation CPUs, and this could be because of the memory latency, because when I "adjust" the memory speed, the scores go back to where one would think they should be.
