The 10-core Intel Core i9-10900K performed unexpectedly well in the Geekbench test – at the 12-core Ryzen 9 3900X

The next test of the 10-core Core i9-10900K processor – the flagship of the Comet Lake-S line appeared on the Web: in Geekbench 5 it was pushed foreheads with the predecessor Core i9-9900KS and two top AMD Ryzen 3000 CPUs – Ryzen 9 3900X and Ryzen 9 3950X.

If in previous tests Core i9-10900K. If in previous similar tests the Core i9-10900K did not show much agility, now it performed quite well.

Test data for all four CPUs is below:

Geekbench 5, single-threaded test:

  • Intel Core i9-10900K 10 cores / 20 threads – 1437 points;
  • Intel Core i9-9900KS 8 cores / 16 threads – 1412 points;
  • AMD Ryzen 9 3900X 12 cores / 24 threads – 1279 points;
  • AMD Ryzen 9 3950X 16 cores / 32 threads – 1308 points.

Geekbench 5, multithreaded test:

  • Intel Core i9-10900K 10 cores / 20 threads – 11390 points;
  • Intel Core i9-9900KS 8 cores / 16 threads – 9458 points;
  • AMD Ryzen 9 3900X 12 cores / 24 threads – 12134 points;
  • AMD Ryzen 9 3950X 16 cores / 32 threads – 14313 points.

Due to the high frequency (up to 5.3 GHz when loading a single core and up to 4.9 GHz when loading all cores), the Core i9-10900K looks very confident in a single-threaded test, but in multi-threaded it is not much inferior to the 12-core competitor AMD. At the same time, in terms of power consumption, AMD processors are mostly obvious: according to official data, the TDP Core i9-10900K in PL2 mode (when overclocking all cores) is 250 W, but in reality it exceeds 300. So, in terms of performance per watt CPU AMD is still preferable. And so it will be until Intel has mastered the 7-nanometer process technology.
