Intel Core i7 5960X Extreme Edition Review

Intel Core i7 5960X Extreme Edition Testing:

SiSoft Sandra is a diagnostic utility and synthetic benchmarking program. Sandra allows you to view your hardware at a higher level to be more helpful. For this benchmark, I will be running a broad spectrum of tests to gauge the performance of key functions of the CPUs.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Processor Arithmetic

  
  

Multi-Core Efficiency

  
  

 

Memory Bandwidth

  
  

 

Cache and Memory

  

 

 

AIDA64 Extreme Edition is a software utility designed for hardware diagnosis and benchmarking. I will be using the CPU Queen test that looks for the solution to the "Queens" problem on a 10x10 chessboard. This tests the branch prediction capabilities of the processor. The FPU Mandel test measures double precision floating point performance through the computation of several frames of the "Mandelbrot" fractal.

  
  

Higher is Better

 

In the Sandra and AIDA64 testing, the 5960X is the highest performing processor in the vast majority of the tests. In the tests where it is not the leading chip it is related to the DDR4 memory and the loose timings associated with the low voltage of the DIMMs.
