Intel Core i9-10900K 10-Core, 20-Thread CPU Benchmarked On ASRock Z490 Motherboard
This entry was posted on March 2, 2020.
The Core i9-10900K is equipped with 10 cores and 20 threads of computing muscle. It has a 3.7GHz clock and 5.1GHz single-core boost clock, or 5.3GHz via Thermal Velocity Boost (TVB), which is an extra nudge for setups with burlier cooling solutions to handle the higher clockspeed (and subsequent rise in thermals). It also has 20MB of total cache and a 125W TDP.
Twitter user and prominent leaker @_rogame spotted the chip and motherboard combo in a 3DMark Fire Strike database entry. Have a look...
Unfortunately, we don't have our own collection of 3DMark Fire Strike Physics scores to compare against. However, it's easy enough to search through 3DMark's database. In his Twitter post, _rogame posted a few Ryzen 9 3900X scores in the same test. Have a look...
- Ryzen 9 3900X (32GB DDR4-3200): 30,415
- Ryzen 9 3900X (32GB DDR4-3400): 30,084
- Ryzen 9 3900X (32GB DDR4-3200): 29,955
- Core i9-10900K (64GB DDR4-2666): 28,988
- Core i9-10900K (16GB DDR4-3200): 28,940
Of course, this is just one benchmark (and a leaked on at that). While the Core i9-10900K has a decent showing here, we suspect the Ryzen 9 3900X will best the Core i9-10900K in workloads that are properly optimized to hammer all available cores and threads. We'll know soon enough, as Comet Lake-S will undoubtedly be launching soon.
