or people who do multithreaded stuff, where the 990x destroys the 2600k.
Destroy is serious hyperbole in this case if we're being honest about it.

990x will pwn 2600k at everything but comes close to 2600k at gaming.

Price aside, there's no way in hell I wouldn't choose a 990x over the 2600k at stock as the OP indicated.

Oh and you are completely and 100% correct about using multiple SB systems to "destroy" the 990x if you can run parallel processes.

I do high end digital animation work and visual effects at home and recently decided to splurge some money on a rendering solution. After a lot of math and a lot of sorting through benchmarks, the 2600k was simply by far the most obvious choice.

Will it render an image as fast as a 990x? Nope. But, will I be able to afford to build two SB rigs for a similar price as I'd get one 990x rig for? Yes. Will 2 SB rigs in parallel out perform a single 990x rig? Hell yes.

I would love to compare notes with anyone here who has a 990x and is running Maya 2011 and VRay. Trade a couple scene files and compare render times.

For the price of a dirt simple SB rig for rendering and other applications, you will literally NEVER beat it.

Fixed costs (mobo, PSU, HDD, 16GB Ram, case, Windows 7) are roughly $530 per machine. You can then either drop in a $300 SB chip and overclock to 4.5ghz on air...or drop in a $1100 990x and probably be more limited in your OC due to temps which further bridges the performance gap with the SB chip.

$830 for a barebones 2600k rig.
$1630 for a barebones 990x rig.

My 2600k boxes can pull 9.7 in Cinebench CPU rendering. Unless the 990x is capable of 18+, it's not really a discussion.

And if you were truly looking to cram as much multi threaded power into one box as humanly possible, just get a dual Xeon over the 990x and be done with it. It will cost you only $1,300 more to do that (more expensive mobo + 2nd $1k+ proc). In a high end system with SSD drive(s), multiple RAID HDDs, multiple GPUs, an expensive PSU and a nice case (let's figure a $4,500 990x machine)...$1,300 isn't THAT much more to throw at it considering you will double your CPU power over a 990x rig.

That's only if you need the best Xeons too, you could drop down a few notches on each proc and still come out WAY on top for maybe only $500-$800 more. Seeing 24 threads in the task menu is pretty cool too.

990x, but if price is a factor the 970? cheap hex with hyperthreading that overclocks generally just as well as the 990x with the right board.

I'd like to see your cinebench score at 4Ghz, if you don't mind.

In my humble opinion, the price point of the 990x is high enough that I would simply switch to dual Xeons rather than a single 990x and probably blow it away.

The options in my eyes would go something like this:

1) 2600k. Super cheap, extremely powerful.
2) I honestly have no idea what, if anything, I would get as an intermediate system. MAYBE a 970, but even with 6 cores it seems to be completely on par with the 2600k due to slower cores.
3) Dual Xeons. If you're going balls to the wall, do it right and overkill correctly.

We need some 990x users to post Cinebench scores. Until that happens, this entire thread is basically monkeys flinging poop. Run the test as OC'd as you want as long as the clocks would be stable to run on 24/7 or at least for several hours.

My 2600k machines score somewhere between 9.5 and 10.0.

I see an i7 980x benchmark on the Maxon website here...they ran it at 5.3ghz on liquid nitrogen and it only posted a score of 13.33.

All the other 980x machines are around 11.7; a 20% improvement over the 2600k. Nothing to scoff at, that's a significant increase, but not for the price increase. Two 2600k machines on a network = 19.4 CPU score. The only systems I see pulling numbers higher than that are OC'd, dual Xeon X5680 machines which put numbers up around 22...but again, for that price, I could have five 2600k boxes running.

I'm still trying to find where the OP said anything about price/value or multiple cpu setups. All I read from him/her was what was the fastest at stock.
