X99 - 5960X@4.6 vs z170 - 6700k@4.8 - w/ 1080 Sli - 3440x1440

post #1 of 38
Thread Starter 
I've been increasingly more curious at how a decently overclocked X99 platform stacks up to the latest Z170 Skylake offerings. I've deiced to run some benchmarks over the course of the last few days. There are very few benchmarks available in 3440x1440. There are exactly 0 benchmarks that are available for a z170 platform that are in x16 sli across both GPU's, up until now that is. x8/x8 benchmarks on a z170 platform are next and if it's any indication on the previews I'm seeing it makes a difference.


Test System:
CPU - 6700K @ 4.8 / 5960X @ 4.6
Motherboard - Gigabyte z170 Gaming G1 / Gigabyte x99 UD3P
RAM - G.Skill Trident Z DDR4 3200mhz 4x8GB @ 14-14-14-34
Storage - Intel 750 1.2TB Pcie SSD
GPU - EVGA GTX 1080 Hybrid @ 2050 in sli (Both platforms at x16 across both GPU's thanks to the PLX chip on the z170 board). Using the HB bridge.
Drivers used were the 369.09 available as part of the Win 10 Anniversary update.

All tests ran at 3440x1440 and same settings (max preset including AA) across both platforms. All of the tests have been ran 3 times each and the results have been averaged for consistency. Since I found heaven/valley and ashes so difficult to parse, I've used the last out of three results to make sure that the gpus would be warmed up and at their lowest daily clocks.

I'm posting this fairly late my local time, so there's a good chance I've messed something up or forgot about something. Any constructive criticism is welcome and as I'm not a professional reviewer.

Is the Z170 able to go 16x/16x? The 5960X is 16x/16x.

You own both systems?

It seems to win in min fps compared to the the X99 while the max fps might favor the higher core count cpu.

No, Z170 does not support x16/x16. He's using a PLX chip which grants a x16 slot (usually used for three-way SLI) to use all 16 lanes of the chipset on one card and using SLI on the PLX chip slot. It's got latency issues and shouldn't be as nice an experience as normal SLI would be (which won't show up in benchmark numbers unless frametimes are checked).

Is this running quad channel on X99 and dual channel on Z170? If it's dual channel on the X99 you should get quad channel just to see if it helps. Also, see if you can test Witcher 3.

Nice test, interesting to see these results!

As expected, thanks for sharing your results though!

Interesting. Does it use quad channel memory with x99?

Thanks for the effort, you just set my head straight about my new pc budget.

Awesome results. Definitely proves Intel was upto something good with Z170! My upcoming 6700k should keep me quite happy for a good number of years.

It'd be interesting to see power consumption numbers too... gaming load and prime 95 load....thumb.gif

It shows that like usual games are coded to utilize one or two cores which the 6700K have much faster single threaded performance. If you look at the games that use multithreaded coding in shadows of morder, metro, battlefield games etc it's different. It's possible with DX12/Vulkan your 6700K might date faster than you want it to. We will see how they design to code from here.

We need more people like you on OCN with real world tests and no incentives from the manufacturers!
