Comprehensive Core i9-10900K Review Leaked: Suggests Intel Option Formidable

A comprehensive review of the Intel Core i9-10900K 10-core/20-thread processor by Chinese tech publication TecLab leaked to the web on video sharing site bilibili. Its testing data reveals that Intel has a fighting chance against the Ryzen 9 3900X both in gaming- and non-gaming tasks despite a deficit of 2 cores; whereas the much pricier Ryzen 9 3950X only enjoys leads in multi-threaded synthetic- or productivity benchmarks.

Much of Intel's performance leads are attributed to a fairly high core-count, significantly higher clock speeds than the AMD chips, and improved boosting algorithms, such as Thermal Velocity Boost helping the chip out in gaming tests. Where Intel loses hard to AMD is power-draw and energy-efficiency. TecLab tested the three chips with comparable memory- and identical graphics setups.

More charts follow.

The games above are Assassin's Creed Odyssey, Metro: Exodus, and Tomb Raider.

Im hoping the second hand market is flooded by 9900k peeps ditching to AMD/new platform.
I have an i9-9900K here and was intrigued by Ryzen 3800X when it came out.
So I bought the Ryzen 3800X CPU, board, and RAM for it. But I just couldn't bring myself to sell the i9-9900K. It's pretty damn nice and it's a keeper.

Are we looking at the same charts? I see at max a 6 fps difference...you cant even notice that unless you actively switch between the two....
I mean if you play on low settings on 1080p or below, basically if are a "pro" high fps player in CSGO sure go intel.

But if you are a more mainstream? or average gamer, they tend to prefere high resolutions and all the settings cranked, meaning you wont benefit from that Intel cpu at all, you would just be buying an aged cpu in a new suit.
I'm not sure if you've seen the ones I've seen.

Gaming: Intel kills AMD.

AMD only wins in those workstation style benchmarks I don't care about.

But if you don't know - now ya know...

go ahead then, link those that you have seen where it "kills" AMD

Buy ryzen 4000 this year and you're looking at the exact same thing the next time you want to upgrade. At least with the 1200 Socket and 10900k you have atleast 1 generation more of upgrades (rocket lake). Can't say that if you go 4000 series and x570 (it's EOL). AM4 will be replaced after this year.
Hmmm you are a bit handicapped i see. If you buy 4000 its because you are already on the platform. If you want 10900k you have to buy the platform. AM4 sure will be replaced after this year, just like 1200 in 2 years (wow access to rocket lake yet another 5 year old orverpriced architecture). Atleast am4 lasted 4 years or 5?

Boring.

Are an adult that just plays games all day?

Working? got a woman? somethings are more important than getting 10 extra fps at 1080p while using 200watts of power.

There won't any proof its the typical fan boy post void of any reasoning or logic.

Thanks for the drama.

When Intel launched Sandy Bridge while AMD was struggling with their outdated CPU's, now that was a KILL if anything. Or Intel in 2006. This is nothing compared to that.

A reminder of how much AMD is getting killed during the last year:


:D
