I wish Intel would seed retailers with plenty of stock before launch, even if it causes a week of delay. Scalpers and such are very annoying.

You would think they would have it, but it's the one CPU where every single bundle is "Out of Stock" -- also I've already pre-ordered the RV Ed10, so getting a bundle wouldn't really work out. Crazy how fast these went if they were ever really in stock...

Unfortunately I live in a state that doesn't have a Microcenter, otherwise I would have definitely gone there.

Oh well, it's not like the RV Ed10 will be here this week anyways. I hope they stock them before it gets here though. Literally wasting the warranty away if it sits here. (Not that ASUS is great on warranty claims but that's for another discussion.)

It seems there is very low stock on this new set of processors, the 6850 and 6900 I have never seen in stock other than third party sellers anywhere.

well apparently the asus strix has a weird unorthodox spacing between the pcie lanes so you are pretty much stuck with flexible sli bridges until asus makes their own that fits their board. I see microcenter has the gigabyte x99 phoenix boards. I was wondering if anyone knows how they will do for overclocking? I think I will get the broadwell-e with one of the newer motherboards with some of those new features for future proofing. My current motherboard's second pcie slot is broken so sli right now isn't working. I am now looking for those motherboards with metal pcie slots.

Linus put it best, there is literally no spot in the market for the 6950x. If you need more clockspeed you are better off getting a 6700k, need more cores you are better off with a xeon...heck a dual socket motherboard and two lower clocked xeons are even cheaper lol.\

No one should be buying that CPU and you should feel bad if you did. Intel is really getting cocky this generation, you need to vote with your wallet and not buy this processor.

Well, it's only die hard bench markers that will pick it up for a small gain in score. I certainly won't be getting one, since Skylake-E is next year anyway.

I hope no one buys the 6950x..it is so badly priced to rip off consumers. I hope most reviews have the balls to call out intel about this. Make me sick some sites still gave it gold award and such

Trouble is these ridiculously expensive products always sell very well surprisingly. Intel is clearly cashing in on enthusiasts deep pockets, they must have got the inspiration from Nvidia as their $1000+ GPU's always sold like hot cakes. We all originally thought Titan was crazy money, but a lot of people bought into them...myself included biggrin.gif

The 6950X is just there for people that want the ultimate e-peen. Although it'll have the worst depreciation when a 10 core Skylake E comes along for a third of the cost.

Feel bad? You're joking right? The thing about the i7-6950X is that it helps bridge the gap between single threaded needs AND multi threaded needs. This chip can do BOTH when overclocked. Why force someone to choose between a single threaded machine and a multi threaded one?? I personally want both...in the same machine! Intel isn't charging more for the 6 and 8 core processors, but has simply made a premium SKU avsilable to those who want/need/can afford one and is charging a premium price for it.

I think the i7-6950X is a great SKU...good single threaded performance and the rough equivalent multi threaded performance of a 16-core Xeon....all under one roof. It's a sorely needed ultra premium SKU for those that want it. Worth $1700?? Most definitely...wink.gif Intel isn't going to (nor should it) give away 16-core Xeon caliber performance for $1K. Those who don't need such a chip have many K SKUs from which to choose at many different price points.

If Xeons weren't hard locked, it wouldn't matter...one could negate the single threaded performance penalty by overclocking. But the i7-6950X offers the best available multi threaded performance that doesn't force you to make the huge single threaded compromise that a locked Xeon does.

Why? The 6 and 8 cores haven't changed in price. If Intel had jacked their price up, I could understand your "rip off consumers" argument, but all they are offering here is an ultra premium SKU for those that want it that sits higher on the SKU stack. I commend them for this SKU. Many people have been begging them for such a SKU for a very long time.

As I've said before, the i7-6950X is there to provide the best of both worlds...excellent single AND multi threaded performance. If you don't need the multi threaded performance it offers, buy a K SKU! They are largely unchanged in price. The reason why these chips sell is...that people want and need them!! I want top notch single threaded performance without being forced to give up multi threaded potential and I'm willing to pay a premium to get that ability. I'm happy the i7-6950X is here and hope it sells well so Intel continues to release premium performance parts in the future. My only wish is that they maintain the useful Xeon features like ECC and dual CPU capability in the future...for the price, they should be enabled.

Can someone run the WinRAR benchmark.

Its in the Tools menu / Benchmark.

Needs to run until it displays the highlighted KB/s result.

 

7zip benchmark would be good to see too.
