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

Cinebench R15 is useful for testing your system, CPU, and OpenGL capabilities using the software program, CINEMA 4D. We will be using the default tests for this benchmark.



X.264 Benchmark: This benchmark is used to measure the time it takes to encode a 1080p video file into the x.264 format. The default benchmark is used with an average of all four tests on each pass taken as the result.



PCMark 8.2 is the latest iteration of Futuremark's popular PCMark system performance tool. This latest version is a comprehensive tool that runs through real life scenarios to test the install hardware using a series of real life application to simulate the load.



In the Cinebench testing, the single core scoring is handicapped somewhat by the core clock speed of the processor. Overclocking helps the single core scoring somewhat, while running in Multi-Core mode you get the benefit of the additional cores again. The Core i7 6950X does show similar performance to the Core i7 5775C in this respect. When you lay out the 20 cores to effect, the Core i7 6950X is a beast when you are rendering an image. Encoding video sees a strong boost from the additional core count in the X.264 testing. Overclocking again adds value if you choose to go that route.
