Intel Core I7 6950X Extreme Edition Broadwell-E CPU

The crew at Overclockers Club have published a review of Intel's brand new Core I7 6950X Extreme Edition Broadwell-E processor. It looks as though, with the exception of pricing, they really liked this new CPU. Hit the link for the complete run down. Here's a quote from the full review to get you started.

While you have a bit of financial pain moving to the latest and greatest Extreme Edition processors, you are guaranteed a specific performance window for doing so. In my testing, I found there were very few scenarios where the Core i7 6950X did not exceed the performance of the previous generation Haswell-E Core i7 5960X. In just about every test, the additional core count and Turbo Boost speeds helped out performance. From rendering tasks to gaming, the Core i7 6950X does a great job leveraging the core count of the processor.
