Well it appears we have topped out CPUmark99. The best any CPU will do is 5.60Mhz/CPUmark99. Meaning it requires 5.60 MHz from the CPU core to generate 1 CPUmark99. IPC gains with this benchmark basically flattened out after Haswell (5.8)

I did a test with a 5950X at 5GHz and scored 903... within 1.2% of the same 5.6Mhz/CPUMark99, so close enough to say you seem to be right. Is CPUMark99 x87 heavy?
