3D Rendering GPU or CPU?

Is it faster to render on 2x Intel E5-2695 (36 physical cores) or to run a GPU render with 1x Nvidia M6000 ?  

The Nvidia M6000 is very expensive.  The only purpose of this video card for us is the GPU rendering.  With 3DS MAX or Modo the Nvidia M4000 handling the 3D model perfectly.  But it's a little slow to render.

You can render probably just as well with the latest  Titan X... I do know that the M6000 is more made for rendering than maybe the Titan X but from benches I've seen the Titan X runs just as good and sometimes better... Plus side you can probably buy 2 Titan X's maybe 3 for the price of that M6000.

Now I would also think that rending from the GPU would probably be a bit faster than running on your CPUs running with some Titan X's.

Hope this helped :)
