Intel "Broadwell-E" Core i7-6950X 10-Core Extreme Edition CPU Review

Clock for Clock: AIDA64 EE and Handbrake


AIDA64 Engineer Edition AES and Hash Tests





AIDA64 Engineer Edition FPU Tests




AIDA64 Engineer Edition Memory Bandwidth Test








I should mention that although AIDA64 was updated and all benchmarks have been rerun just for this review, AIDA64 still notified me that it wasn't optimized for the Broadwell-E CPU. Nevertheless, performance increases are noticeable because of the extra cores. The 6950X is fully stable at 4GHz, and seeing the Handbrake numbers go up is always nice.
