A single 10-core Xeon, or even an 18-core for that matter are no match for the i7-5960X. Xeon is far more costly and performs less.
I believe cc_merchant forgot one little Item that is the i7-5960X has to be somewhat overclocked to achieve that superiority. But yes that is the way to go.
what now? ... better: Xeon?
or better: i7?
and whether it will be a big difference?
compared to my equipment...?
Read the links I gave you. It is all answered there.
Thx a response .. i buy 5960X and others!! Thx for all!
The 14 Core Xeon chip offers greater realtime load capability for many 4K codecs. The 8 Core I7 due to clock speed advantages for CPU and ram would offer the best combination of realtime playback with render performance. 1080 media in general would work ideally on the i7 for both. So the only real considerations are what 4K codecs you work with and whether the focus is realtime editing capability alone for complex projects or performance for realtime playback and render.
