Intel Core i9-9900K 3DMark benchmark spotted and beats Ryzen 7 2700X

The first benchmark numbers of Intel’s upcoming Core i9-9900K 8-core/16-thread socket LGA1151 processor from a Thai professional overclocker TUM APISAK. On a 3DMark database submission, we can see the new Core i9-9900K scored 10,719 points in the CPU tests, with an overall score of 9,862 points with a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics card.

According to WCCFTech, the CPU score is about 2,500 points higher than the 6-core/12-thread Core i7-8700K, and about 1,500 points higher than the 8-core/16-thread AMD Ryzen 7 2700X. The tested processor features 8 cores, 16 threads, a nominal clock of 3.10 GHz, and a boost frequency of 5.00 GHz, as measured by 3DMark’s internal System Info module. Intel is expected to launch the Core i9-9900K on 1st August, 2018.

In addition to the performance leak, is alleging that both, the Core i9-9900K and Core i7-9700K will be using a soldered IHS instead of a TIM solution. This will only be valid for the two unlocked 8 core processors while the rest of the lineup is likely to use a TIM solution again.
