    Does the CPU benchmark score means the real power?7700K v.s. E5 1650 v2

      Hi ,

         I'm doing Pro-Audio.  I'm deciding between a 7700 K PC v.s. a E5 1650 V2 mac pro.

      What got me confused is E5 1650 V2 is very very old (2013, 4th gen CPU) while 7700K is the newest 7th i7, BUT:

       

      PassMark Intel vs AMD CPU Benchmarks - High End

       

         the benchmarks showing the E5 1650 V2 is even slightly more powerful. Wouldn't the 7th gen 7700k CPU is much newer than the 4th gen cpu? I didn't get it

       

      Thank you
