I currently have a 6850 @4.3 and it seems to be bottlenecking my 2080Ti, I'm not getting the bump in frames I was expecting, even with a decent OC on it. My question is, would getting my hands on a 6900 or 6950 get rid of my bottleneck and give me more frames or do I need something that will push closer to 5Ghz? I'm not really wanting to start a new build yet, none of the newest hardware is very exciting.With that being said I don't want to get a 6900/6950 if thats not going improve performance either.

I would go for the 9900k setup. I have both 9900k and a 6850k overclocked at 4.2ghz and with similar graphic cards the 9900k 3dmark scores smoke the 6850k by about 30 percent thanks to higher physics and combined scores. The 2080ti is begging for 9900k power.

Hi,
I believe a 6950x would be a lot better compared to 9900k but still price wise it's a sad joke of a purchase

Used dud probably for 5-600.us though.

I also checked out the new 1903 bios last night and saw all my benchmarks increase. Cinebench went up about 10 points and real bench went up about 4000 points.

They've gone up because X99 was one of the best platforms all round that Intel ever released. The amount of PCIe lanes and SATA ports at the time was great for a home server or content creation PC. Even though Ryzen and the newer Intel chipsets may have nearly as many cores, they don't have as much features. Also the fact that everyone on X99 knows the 6950X is the final upgrade to it.

Dont forget to mention, since X99 is quad channel memory capable, even 4 sticks of basic 2133mhz CL14 ram can provide a butt-ton of bandwidth.


I love the capability of my 5930K, I HATE its overclocking ability though. Needs nearly 1.3 volts vcore to fully stabilize 4.25GHz, though I do run it through the ringer to verify that. Could probably game at 1.2 volts, seeing as I accidentally booted it at 1.15v at that speed, but of course, crashed soon after.


Also, depending on which X99 motherboard, you do have access to all those huge core count Xeons!! Some of them are even unlocked, though very rare to come across online for sale for a reasonable price
