Intel Core i7-5960X Extreme CPU Review

The crew at Benchmark Reviews has posted a review of the Intel Core i7-5960X Extreme processor this morning. For comparison purposes, you can see our evaluation here.

Benchmark Reviews has now completed performance testing of our Intel Core i7-5960X Haswell-E processor. As this is Intel’s first 8-core consumer processor, we have high expectations for this top-end iteration of the new Haswell-E architecture. Equipped with Intel’s 22nm, "3D" transistors, 20 megabytes of on-chip cache, and a new DDR4 memory controller, the 5960X is unlike anything Intel’s ever done before.
