Intel X79 Core i7 4960X Review
A fairly inauspicious start for the i7-4960X. At stock it's very similar to the i7-3930K and i7-3960X, and the overclocked results are extremely similar. There is some improvement in the zLib compression test, but so far it's a fairly standard "faster core speed equals higher results" affair.
Even with the higher available memory clock speed we're not seeing a massive improvement in memory bandwidth. The quad-channel is still 33% slower than the dual-channel LGA1155/LGA1150 offerings, although the i7-4960X is a clear improvement over the i7-3960X.
