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

Office 2010 Black Scholes model: This test takes a 70.1 MB Microsoft Excel spreadsheet and performs about 28,000 sets of calculations that represent many of the most commonly used calculations in Excel. The measure of this test is the amount of time it takes to refresh the sheet.

 

 

 

POV-Ray 3.7: This program features a built-in benchmark that renders an image using Ray Tracing. The latest versions offer support for SMP (Symmetric Multi-Processing), enabling the workload to be spread across several cores for quicker completion.

 

ProShow Gold: This program is used to take a collection of images and stitch them together in a slide show, using a variety of transitions and effects, to make a compelling show you can share with friends and family. The workload consists of 29 high-resolution images that are stitched into a 3-minute video file.

 

HandBrake .99: HandBrake is an open source application used to transcode multiple video formats to an h.264 output format. The test file size is 128 MB in size and 43 seconds in length.

 

In each of these tests, the additional core count helps drive performance except in ProShow Gold, where the Core i7 6950X does not seem to scale as well as in other tests. However, when you throw the screws to the 14nm Core i7 6950X, it responds quite well and drives performance even higher, thanks to the additional clock speed.
