More benchmarks disclosed for Intel Core i9-10900K have surfaced online, showing the new superior processor reaching an impressive 5.4 GHz.
The Intel Core i9-10900K was announced last week as the flagship CPU for Intel's 10th generation Comet Lake-S family. Improving the Core i9-9900K before it, the new processor contains 10 cores, 20 threads and a TDP of 125 W, a huge jump compared to the previous 95 W, as well as boost clocks up to 5.3 GHz on two cores .
However, as reported VideoCardz, an article now deleted on Baidu, showed that the Core i9-10900K was overclocked to 5.4 GHz on the 10 cores. This apparently allowed the 10900K to score 3002 points in the Cinebench R15 multicore test, well ahead of the Intel Core i9-9900K which scored 2184 and even surpassed Intel's Intel Xeon W-2195 processor, which managed 2,949 points.
However, not surprisingly, Intel's new flagship still fails to match AMD's new processors, behind the Ryzen 9 3900X and 3950X which score 3,168 and 4,070 points respectively.
Either way, it means the Core i9-10900K should give AMD's Ryzen 3900X a run for its money, and although we haven't yet seen how the chip worked in single-core tests, it Intel's flagship product is likely to stand out when it comes to gaming. Either way, we'll find out exactly how these chips will line up when we can test them for ourselves.
