Core i7-5960X vs. Core i7-5930K - Content Creation performance analysis
     Mon, Dec 21 2015 | 3:39P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There is a variety of customer groups, which demand as much power as possible from their computers in order to accelerate processes in order to become more efficient and in the end increase revenue or add additional value to their projects. Especially in the field of content creation, which includes editing pictures and videos or even rendering a complex scenery with beautiful effects, will benefit largely from fast processors as well as a powerful underlying system architecture. With this series of articles we're going to compare two processors with every single article. The CPUs tested are being run at stock clocks as well as overclocked and apart from that we will also vary the memory frequency. It is our goal to show in depth which CPU is how much faster or slower than another one.
