Ryan Shrout at PC Perspective reviews the ”Intel Core i9-7980XE and 7960X: Skylake-X at $1999 and 18-cores” using BAPCo’s SYSmark 2014 SE benchmark.
According to PC Perspective, “Both the 7980XE and the 7960X take over the top spots in our SYSmark performance scores. While you might assume that is an easy task for Intel because of the high core count, SYSmark has a strong emphasis on single core performance which means we need high clock speeds to get scores at this level. Intel has a great balance of single threaded clock and high core count that creates great overall system capability.”
