AMD Ryzen 7 3800X in X570 motherboard surpassed by unhindered Intel Core i9-9900KS in latest Geekbench reveal
Tum Apisak’s diligent scouring of Geekbench has delivered another comparison between the Intel Core i9-9900KS and AMD Ryzen 7 3800X CPUs. We recently reported how the chip from Intel had surprisingly failed to dominate the processor from AMD in the multi-core test. However, it seems the i9-9900KS had been hamstrung in the previous record, as a new comparison makes for more positive reading for the engineers at Intel.
This time around, both the AMD-powered system and the Intel-powered system have basically the same memory specifications to utilize, whereas the former test was weighted in AMD’s favor. Interestingly, in the latest comparison the Ryzen 7 3800X can be found in a newer Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master motherboard, which is still not sufficient enough to prevent the i9-9900KS from taking the spoils on this occasion.
The Intel Core i9-9900KS scores a very healthy 6,450 points in the single-core test compared to the Ryzen 7 3800X’s 5,919 points. The unhindered Intel Coffee Lake chip also defeats the Matisse processor in the multi-core benchmark, with the former scoring 38,301 versus the latter’s 36,933. This is likely the kind of performance potential buyers will expect from the Intel chip, especially if it ends up being even pricier than its i9-9900K stable-mate.
