New "proper" Intel Core i9 9900K vs AMD Ryzen 7 2700X benchmarks released across 19 games

DSOGaming writes: "A few days ago, Principled Technologies released some inaccurate benchmarks between the upcoming Intel Core i9 9900K CPU and the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X. Principled Technologies used the Game Mode for AMD’s CPU which basically halved its available CPU cores, resulting in some really underwhelming and “fake” results. And after a huge backlash, the company went ahead and re-tested the games without this mode."

How people are still buying products from this "industry leader". I hope AMD cleans up for years to come.

That makes two of us. Especially when amd is competing and in some cases surpassing intel at a fraction of the cost. It's why I've been team amd for awhile now cant wait to see they're next gen gpus

Depends on your purpose of I purely gamed on my pc I'd honestly just get the 8700 at a steep discount especially when next gen 10nm processors from Intel will potentially be out this year.

But I often create a fair few virtualised server environments outside of games my machine is a workhorse so I'd take the i9 with its hyoerthreading any day of the week

@Profchaos The 10nm chips are already confirmed to NOT be coming out this year.

Because of gaming and rendering? No matter what AMD does, it can't beat Intel in single-thread performance.

Not yet. But it will get so close in 2019 it won't even matter, Zen 2 will close the gap to nothing. As multi core becomes more important AMD will hopefully be selling you more cores for less.

Expect to obtain an AMD 8 core in 2019 a match for the i9 9900k, but costing a lot less.

You act like they are so far behind which they aren't. My 1700x @3.9 is as fast as a 6700k and I have 4 more cores and 8 mores threads.

Game mode hurts performance in games?

Weeblordbad100d ago

It's a feature intended for their Threadripper processors, not the mainstream Ryzen processors.

Gahl1k100d ago

This mode cuts the processor's cores in half (meaning if it has 8 cores, this mode will only utilise 4 cores), which hits the processor's performance, especially in gaming when using Ryzen processors. It is meant for Threadripper, and it actually enhances their gaming performance.

This is still somewhat ironic, I love it

i did bought a ryzan 5 2600x and for its price i am happy
