PCMark 8 is a benchmarking software that uses real-world applications to measure the computer performance. We ran three tests: Home, which includes web browsing, writing, light gaming, photo editing, and video chat tests; Creative, that includes web surfing, video editing, group video chat, video conversion, and gaming; and Work, which runs tasks such as writing documents, web browsing, spreadsheets, editing, and video chatting. Let’s see the results.
The Core i7-6950X obtained a score that is 4% superior to the Core i7-5960X on the Home benchmark.
On the Creative benchmark, the Core i7-6950X was 5% faster than the Core i7-5960X.
On the Work benchmark, the Core i7-6950X obtained the same performance of the Core i7-5960X.
