Intel Core i9-9900KS to be Faster than Ryzen 7 3800X, Compete with Ryzen 9 3900X @ $499 (Estimate)

A while back, we saw the first Geekbench scores of the Intel Core i9-9900KS where it seemed to perform worse than its non-S variant, the 9900K. The Ryzen 7 3800X was also able to beat it in the multi-threaded bench with a marginal delta in the SC test. As I expected, that CPU wasn’t tested under proper conditions, hence the dismal performance. Yesterday, another benchmark surfaced where the 9900KS is faster than both the 9900K as well as the Ryzen 7 in the single-threaded as well as the multi-threaded workloads.

The KS part is just 2-3% faster than the existing i9 flagship in the SC bench, but the multi-threaded score is a good 10%+ higher. This makes sense considering that the 9900KS runs at an all-core boost of 5GHz, same as the SC peak of the 9900K. In comparison, the Ryzen 7 3800X maxes out at 4.5Ghz and the 3900X has a boost clock of 4.6GHz (not all core).

The Core i9-9900KS is slightly faster than the 3800X in the multi-threaded test but still lags behind the similarly priced Ryzen 9 3900X by a significant margin. Considering that the vanilla i9 costs north of $450, the 9900KS will cost around $500, the same as the present AMD flagship, with Intel justifying the high pricing with its better single-core performance in “real-world” benchmarks.

I love computer hardware and RPGs, and those two things are what drove me to start TechQuila. Other than that most of my time goes into reading psychology, writing (and reading) dark poetry and playing games.
