I was talking about all of the Hexa cores that have released. Even if we go by the generation using the same architecture then it's still clear that the Quads out perform the Hexa cores in single core test by a decent margin.
Well, it would be more fair to put a 6800k against a 6700k, at the same clocks they will yield very similar single threaded performance (I know Broadwell-e vs Skylake, Skylake may still have a slight advantage).
For example a 4930k at say 4.8ghz is going to have almost identical single threaded performance as a 3770k at 4.8ghz.
Quads do tend to take extreme clocks better, but reasonable 24/7 clocks tend to fall around the same speed depending how lucky you get at the silicon lottery.Here's a spreadsheet
with a few single threaded Cinebench results.Edited by tbob22 - 6/22/16 at 1:31pm
