Intel’s flagship Comet Lake-S CPU goes against Ryzen 9 series.

Intel Core i9-10900K vs Ryzen 9 3950X

An early review of the Core i9-10900K has been published ahead of the official embargo. The sample tested by TecLab appears to be a retail version, meaning there should be no reason to believe that the sample was cherry-picked by Intel.

Please note that we usually do not provide our commentary based on leaked reviews. Readers are encouraged to drive their own conclusions and wait for more comprehensive reviews to appear.

A summarization by TecLab (machine translation)

  • i9 10900K power consumption and temperature are high again, 360 integrated water cooling is the minimum heat dissipation standard
  • Rely on CPU rendering + transcoding applications, or choose Ryzen 9 is stronger
  • Playing games and daily operations Application, the new i9 at 5GHz + clock speed is indeed faster
  • The overclocking performance comparison test of the three processors has been completed, and it will be launched in the near future
  • Finally, correct the memory parameters in the configuration list, AMD X570 part, the frequency is DDR4 -3600 The timing is 18-22-22-42 1T FCLK = 1800

Testing platform

The testing platform features Z490/X570 motherboard series, although the reviewer has not disclosed the Z490 motherboard model. AMD CPUs are using MEG X570 GODLIKE, the flagship model for the X570 series from MSI. Both systems were using DDR4 memories rated at 4000 MHz (GSKILL Trident Z), but the AMD system with different timings and frequency (see below).

All three CPUs were cooled down by EKWB 360mm AIO cooler. CPUs were paired with GALAX’s HOF RTX 2080 Ti graphics card.
