Intel announced the 10th generation of Comet Lake processors in late April – the company will release 24 new 14nm chips, ranging from dual core Celeron to ten core Core i9. Their first reviews will only be available online in a few days, and so far one of them has been published earlier.
We are talking about a review of the top Core i9-10900K, which Intel calls “the fastest processor for video games in the world”. It is a model with 10 cores (20 computing threads) that runs at 3.7-5.3 GHz and can consume up to 250 Watts of power. Also, the Core i9-10900K has a 20 MB level 3 cache
For comparison, the author of the test chose the flagship Ryzen – Ryzen 9 3900X and Ryzen 9 3950X. All other components in the systems were the same (except the motherboard).
In most of the tests these processors act approximately the same. Thus, the Intel chip wins in wPrime, WinRAR, Photoshop and After Effects, while AMD chips work faster in SuperPi and Cinebench and when encoding x265-video. Ryzen also consumes considerably less power. Intel games really do have a slight advantage.
