another 2 weeks then :( just curious but a rough idea what would be the difference in time when rendering with either the 4930k or the 5960x and then compare those 2 my current amd fx 8350? ive never owned an intel but i know they have always dominated amd for awhile, my previous cpu was the amd 1090t which even though its 6 cores to fx's 8 core there was no difference at all between them 2 when it came to rendering so just curious and exited to see how the 5960x will run

I'd guess the 5960x to be ~30% quicker than the 4930k, at stock clocks. It will however be topped at 3.5ghz on stock to fit in the 140w tdp which means it will overclock by stupid amounts, I'm guessing at least by 50% as opposed to 30% of the 4930k which would bring the spread to ~50% quicker, if you can handle the cooling.

compared to fx8350, the 5960x would beat it by around 2.5 times :x

and yes the xeons are coming at the same day

Sounds like a big premiere without a big flashy name.
Why not i9 ?

I mean Intel always kept the race hot with that marketing loud things.
Now they became way more humble.

dam i was hoping for atleast 50 times as fast as my shitty bulldozer lol, if i want to do a quick small sample render to see how my materials and lighting are looking it takes a long time and very frustrating. the only reason why im going to get the 5960x is because its only an extra 100 then what the 4930k would cost

>>Now they became way more humble.

yeah.. well, it seems that having no competition makes marketing take a back seat. Just pray that AMD picks up the slack at some point because if they also drop out of mainstream market, intel can do whatever the fk they want, sorta like autodesk. "This year, we added new icons to the cpu!"

>> only an extra 100 then what the 4930k would cost

since the 4930 is $550 and the 5960 is $999 its more like extra $450 :p since this time the x version is actually sizably better though, its still a good choice.

well thought id use cinebench as never tried it before and i got 6.47 points yet the 3770k gets 7.62 points and the 5960x gets 13+ points

amd fx 8350 4.0ghz
6.47 pt
time 65 seconds

i7 5960x 4.4ghz
13 pts
time 24 seconds

so ye stabby you was right saying its 2.5 times quicker so 5 hours (18000 seconds) devide by 2.5 = 2 hours (7200 seconds) would you say thats a very good improvement for that kind of cpu?

Hah! It's 2.7083333 times faster! But who's counting anyway.

It turns out my i7 2600K is still pretty decent considering it's from 2011.

But, it's time to build a new machine so.....what should I get, wait for, etc.?

For max and rendering.

These threads always confuse me. (like so many other things)

well my problem is falling into the "i want the latest" category which is not what i want, id rather have something thats perfect for just pure rendering so i dont really care if i have the best :) it will be good to see 8 real cores rather then 8 half of cores for a change

So does mine, thats overclocked though. Also, cinebench is tad biased towards sandy bridge in particular compared to max

All i did was hit the Auto overclock button on the Asus app tbh.. so an easy 13 points :)

I dunno, i guess i expect more. The usual, Intel dragging their heels because they have no competition from AMD and can literally create an entirely new market of chipset and platform every couple of years by spoonfeeding consumers with every little improvement in architecture.

If i was buying a brand new system right now yeah i`d do with the 5930k or even the 5960x but i don`t see the point in putting down the outlay for new cpu, new mobo, new ram, etc etc for a few points worth of x264 encoding and virtually the same single-core performance..

First review i read they couldn`t even get the X past 4.4Ghz either so again what`s the point :/
