Rated 5 out of 5 by manzurfahim One of the fastest i7 Processor out there, also one of the most expensive.
I upgraded from i7-4930K to i7-5960X. This is a new platform, which requires a 2011-v3 socket motherboard and DDR4 RAM. If you are planning to build a new system, this is one of the fastest cpu you can get.
For everyday normal applications, I don't feel any performance benefits over my last system (i7-4930K). But I do a lot of archiving and photo editing, and the extra cores helps in those cases. And add 64GB RAM, and you can run a lot of virtual machines with the 16 available cores.
All in all, recommended CPU if you can afford the price.

I'm using this cpu for 3d rendering and modelling , the cpu itself is expensive but it's worth every pound if you know what to do with it , a good advantage of ddr 4 memory too.
