Intel is one of the largest chip vendors all over the world. We all know the name of Intel for their super powerful semiconductor products – processors. Their processors still rule the processor market largely. Recently, Intel released their 9th gen processors. Don’t forget to check out Intel vs AMD overall comparison.
Today, we’ll have a look at the recently launched Core i9-9900K and Core i7-9700K. The original review is created by Hardware Unboxed – a well-known and reputed YouTube review channel on hardware. Check out the original review on Core i9-9900K and Core i7-9700K. The review is also available on Techspot.
Let’s check out at the summarization of the entire review.
Intel Core-i9 9900K and Core-i9 9700K specs
For running these processors, the Z390 chipset motherboards are extremely recommended for the better power delivery. In the budget Z370 motherboards, the processors seem to choke pretty badly. In the review, MSI Z390 Godlike and Asrock Z390 Taichi Ultimate motherboards were used for consistent results.
All the benchmarks were performed by Hardware Unboxed. Here are all the available benchmark results.
The memory bandwidth is pretty similar with the previous models like the Core i7-8700K.
Next up, the Cinebench R15 results.
The results show that the i9-9900K easily breaks the 2000 points barrier and comes up about 14% faster than the so-called “competitor” Ryzen 7 2700X. i7-9700K is, as expected, slower than i9-9900K at about 26%.
Next up, the Blender result.
In this result, due to heavy hyper-threading requirements, Ryzen 7 2700X reduces the performance gap down to 23%. The Ryzen CPU is faster than the I7-9700K.
Now, the Corona results.
For rendering, Threadripper series makes more sense for the massive core/thread count. In the case of i9-9900K, it took 96 seconds and Ryzen 7 2700X took 120 seconds.
Next up, the V-Ray benchmark.
In this benchmark, the performance gap between i9-9900K and Ryzen 7 2700X reduced by 18%. The i7-9700K falls short in the competition, resulting in slower performance than the i7-8700K.
Now, let’s have a look at the PCMark 10 results.
This synthetic gaming benchmark relies extremely on the core/thread count. That’s why it successfully matched the result of Ryzen 7 2700X. The i7-9700K was able to beat the older Ryzen 7 1800X.
If you’re using a lot of productivity works, then this benchmark section is very important.
Here’s the 7-Zip benchmark result.
In the compression, AMD Ryzen processors fall a bit shorter than Intel counterparts. However, in terms of decompression, AMD Ryzen processors beat the Intel ones easily. Yet, the performance gap between Ryzen 7 2700X and i9-9900K wasn’t that much.
Next up, the Excel 2016 Monte Carlo simulation.
Here, the i9-9900K beats the Ryzen ones easily. The i7-9700K also performed way better here.
Now, the HandBrake results.
The i7-8700K was already better in this benchmarking and the i9-9900K and i7-9700K easily beat the Ryzen 7 2700X.
Now, the Adobe Premiere Pro CC results. This is a hugely popular section for all the productivity lovers.
At the first scene, Intel processors scored very well, beating Ryzen 7 2700X really good. However, with CUDA acceleration, the tide changed completely in the favor of AMD processors.
Intel’s biggest motto for this session of processor lineup is “the best GAMING processors”. Of course, Intel processors have always been a better resultant in terms of gaming. With the latest “Coffee Lake refresh” processors, it’s expected to beat the AMD counterparts.
Here are all the results of gaming benchmarks.
Interestingly, overclocked processors provide nearly no FPS gains!!!
Hopefully, you guys all get a good overview of the new Intel flagship processors. These are obviously the BEST GAMING PROCESSOR, no doubt. Stay tuned for the price vs performance lookup.
