Intel’s Comet Lake S series is nearing its launch. With almost the whole lineup being leaked by multiple sources in the industry, it is just about time it is launched. The Comet Lake S will be the last family based on the archaic 14nm Skylake architecture, hopefully.
Today, a popular and credible leaker, TUM APISAK has revealed another set of benchmarks for the upcoming GPUs. Here are the benchmarks:-
Geekbench 5 Single-Core CPU Tests:
- Intel Core i9-10900K – 1437 Points
- Intel Core i9-9900KS – 1412 Points
- AMD Ryzen 9 3950X – 1308 Points
- AMD Ryzen 9 3900X – 1279 Points
Geekbench 5 Multi-Core CPU Tests:
- AMD Ryzen 9 3950X – 14313 Points
- AMD Ryzen 9 3900X – 12134 Points
- Intel Core i9-10900K – 11390 Points
- Intel Core i9-9900KS – 9458 Points
So here is the thing. As far as single-core performance is concerned, the processor does have an edge over the existing Ryzen lineup and the top of the line i9-9900KS. However, there are a few important things to note. First of all, the Ryzen CPUs aren’t that far behind. Not to forget, the Ryzen 4000 CPUs can actually be almost at par with these numbers. Secondly, the multi-core performance of the CPUs is significantly behind the Ryzen counterparts.
Last but not least, power consumption. The Comet Lake S is a really power-hungry CPU. The upcoming Z490 motherboards are designed to withstand the high power input of the processors. It is said that the chips break the 300W barrier. All this aside, Zen 3 is also slated to release this year. So these numbers will obviously shift towards AMD’s side once the CPUs hit the market.
