[quote="Milos"][quote="Rein Halbersma"]Why not a E5-1650v4 or E5-1660v4? Less cores but much higher perf per core?[/quote] E5-1650v4, i7-6800k and i7-6850k are all physically identical on wafer level its just classification of dies based on frequency.

Re: A sign of the times - 40 years old is still strong

The reason I think that is that there are probably truly correct values for evaluation terms and eventually these will be found.
