MediaEspresso

Version and / or Patch Used: v6.5

Intel Core i7 5960X EE (Haswell-E) CPU and X99 Chipset Review 39 | TweakTown.com

Taking a look at MediaEspresso, we see similar results to what we saw under Lightroom. At stock, you can see the i7 4790K manages to beat out the old EE based i7 4960X EE. Moving to the newer i7 5960X EE, you can see it manages to pull out a win against both processors.

MediaEspresso also sees some awesome gains when overclocking is thrown into the mix. Looking above, you can see it's in the sub 11 minute mark for the encode process.

Handbrake

Version and / or Patch Used: v6.5

Intel Core i7 5960X EE (Haswell-E) CPU and X99 Chipset Review 40 | TweakTown.com

Handbrake makes some serious use of the power that is on offer from Intel's Core i7 5960X EE CPU. Looking above, you can see it's significantly faster than our other processors. Compared to the next closest processor, the i7 4960X EE, it's almost 40% faster.

Handbrake already makes awesome use of all the cores and the extra cache that is on offer from the i7 5960X EE. When you throw a 900MHz overclock into the mix, the average FPS during the encode jumps around 30%. Compared to the stock i7 4790K, you can see that performance is almost double here in favor of Intel's newest processor.
