Intel Core i7 6950X Extreme Edition Broadwell-E Testing:

Part first-person shooter, part survival horror, Metro: Last Light is the follow-up to the extremely popular game Metro 2033. Developed by 4A games and published by Deep Silver, this game uses the 4A game engine. In this game, set a year after the missile strike on the Dark Ones, you continue on as Artyom as he digs deeper into the bowels of the Metro.




  • DirectX 11
  • Global settings = Very High
  • PhysX = Off
  • SSAA = Yes




Metro: Last Light is a graphically intense game that will in most cases see the GPU become the limiting factor in performance rather than the CPU. The Core i7 6950X does deliver FPS performance closer to the top than the bottom of a very defined FPS window at both 1680 x 1050 and 1920 x 1080.


Batman: Arkham Origins is the third installment of the Batman: Arkham series, released in October 2013. This action-adventure game, based on the DC Comics Batman super hero, was developed by Warner Bros. Games Montréal and released by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. Batman: Arkham Origins uses the Unreal 3 game engine just like its predecessors.



  • DirectX 11
  • 8x MSAA
  • 16x AF
  • Global settings = Very High
  • PhysX = Normal




In this game with the eye candy turned up, the FPS delivered by the combination of the GTX 770 and the Core i7 6950X again delivers gaming performance at the top of the FPS window.


3DMark: The just-released version of Futuremark's popular 3DMark suite is designed to let a wider range of the user base make a comparative analysis of the gaming prowess of their systems from entry level PCs, to notebooks, to extreme gaming PCs.



  • Default test settings
  • Cloud Gate
  • Fire Strike
  • Physics 







In this synthetic benchmark, the Core i7 6950X is the highest performing processor/GPU combination. The added CPU processing power helps drive the 3DMark results positively up another notch.
