If you are curious about how well Intel's future Core i9-9900K flagship 9th generation processor will perform, then a new omitted reference point will definitely be interesting as it shows a very nippy CPU indeed.
Bearing in mind the usual warning that this may potentially be fake – something that is always an opportunity for such kinds of rumors before the start. The result of 3DMark (as highlighted by TUM APISAK ) shows Core i9-9900K that hits a total score of 9,862 in Time Spy reference. The chip recorded a graphics score of 9,725 and a CPU score of 10,719.
For reference, the processor was placed in an Asus Z370-F Strix Gaming motherboard ̵
The result represents an impressive swing speed, and as Wccftech.com, who discovered this leak, points out, it turns out AMD's Ryzen 7 2700X with more than 1500 points.
This leak also confirms the specification – to a large extent – and as the Ryzen 7 2700X, Intel's flagship is an eight-core (16-wire) processor. It also suggests that the Core i9-9900K can increase to 5GHz out of the box, although apparently it will only be over two cores (4.7GHz will probably be the maximum booster over all kernels by default).
What is different with this leakage is the base clock not 3.6GHz as previously rumored but 3.1GHz. There may be some doubt about the validity of the reference for some people, but since this early leak is probably from a process process by the CPU, it is not very surprising to see such a small figure for the base bell.
What It also emphasizes that the final production chip becomes even faster when it comes to benchmarking. Exciting things, especially when considering all of this, comes in a pack of an alleged TDP of 95W (again turning off the Ryzen 7 2700X, weighing at 105W).
If all this speculation pans out, it is. We keep our fingers crossed.
