The Intel Core i9 10900K has returned spectacular results on Geekbench 5.
It outputted 11,390 points, thus being far superior to the i9 – 9900KS, who scored only 9,458 points.
Its closest superior from the AMD lineup is the Ryzen 9 3900X, which scored 12,134 points.
Various Combinations And Their Results
Intel is playing it slow with the Comet Lake, but some benchmark scores occasionally pop up online and put the family of processors in decent light.
Tum Apisak discovered that combining an Intel Core i9 – 10900K with an ASRock Z490M Pro4 motherboard results in 11,390 points in a multi-core test and 1,437 points in the single-core test.
Specifications Of The Processor
The Intel Core i9-10900K has impressive features – 10 cores, 3.7 GHz base clock, the boost option to 4.8 GHz for all cores, and 5.3 GHz for a single core.
The estimated TDP is 125W.
When you compare it to the high-end Coffe Lake i9-9900KS, the Comet Lake seems like a fair trade, especially when you consider its two extra cores.
In terms of multi-core performance, the i9-10900K is right behind the AMD Ryzen 9 3900X.
Surprisingly, Intel’s chipset outperforms the AMD processor.
However, the Intel i9-10900K is two cores behind the AMD Ryzen 9 3900X, which also has a lower default TDP of 105W and a somewhat higher base clock of 3.8 GHz.
However, the biggest threat to Intel’s chipset is the upcoming Zen 3 “Vermeer” Ryzen lineup.
Intel and AMD are decade-old rivals in the matter of processors. Once it was believed that Intel was far superior due to their performance and high efficiency, but it looks like the tables might have turned for AMD, whose chipsets are increasingly better with every new generation. AMD processors were always affordable and reliable, but now they also pack a sweet taste of efficiency.
