According to PC Perspective, “This set of real-world tests form SYSmark is our first indication that something good is happening with the Core i9-7900X. The Office Productivity score of the new CPU is actually slightly ahead of the Core i7-7700K and it is 16% higher than the Core i7-6950X. The higher base and Turbo clocks of the new SKL-X parts looks to have a significant impact on single threaded workload performance. Total power consumption during the test on the 7900X is lower than the 6950X, despite the power draw on the Skylake-X platform being higher (as we’ll show later), indicate that work was done faster, allowing the CPU to get to idle power more quickly.”
