Intel Core i9-9900K Cinebench R15 score leaks

Lau Kin Lam from HKEPC had the opportunity to test the new LGA1151 processor from Intel. The one that is supposedly launching next month (I guess no wants to wait).

Intel Core i9-9900K scores 2166 points in Cinebench

The Core i9-9900K is the upcoming 8-core and 16-thread CPU based on Coffee Lake Refresh architecture. New processors (9900K, 9700K and 9600K) are all meant to be supported by existing 300-series motherboards. In order to get the most out of the new flagship CPU, the Z370 or Z390 motherboard is required (for overclocking obviously). We are still weeks away from official reviews, but the engineering samples can be seen almost everywhere. Here’s the score from Lau Kin Lam.

So what does it mean? It means that i9-9900K will be faster than Ryzen 7 2700X, at least in this very specific benchmark. Lau did not test the CPU with a single-threaded benchmark, so I guess we need to wait a little bit longer for that.

This isn’t the only score that was leaked. Yesterday ‘yearsoldangus’ published the following photograph. It shows a different, ~8% lower score than Lau’s. It is still above 2000 points though, and the CPU was also running at 5 GHz.
