The Intel Core i9-11900K beats the Ryzen 9 5950X in new Ashes of the Singularity benchmarks
Earlier this month, the Core i9-11900K appeared on the Ashes of the Singularity benchmark database paired with a GeForce RTX 3080 GPU. Now, the processor has been benchmarked with a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, allowing further comparisons to be drawn between it and other recent desktop processors. According to the new entries, the Core i9-11900K scores around 6,075 points with a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and 32 GB of RAM. The processor also achieved a framerate of 61.9 FPS on the Crazy_1080p preset running the DirectX 12 preset.
By contrast, a similar Core i9-10900K system scored 5,700 points, even though it has two more cores than the Core-11900K. Based on past information, the Core i9-11900K will feature eight cores, a single-core boost clock of 5.3 GHz and an all-core boost of 4.8 GHz. The Rocket Lake-S processor will have 4 MB less L3 cache than its Comet Lake-S predecessor.
Nonetheless, the Core i9-11900K still managed to outscore the Ryzen 9 5950X by a healthy margin. As the screenshot below shows, the Ryzen 9 5950X loses out by nearly 500 points and 5 FPS in the same preset, although it has the disadvantage of 16 GB of RAM, rather than 32 GB. The two processors were benchmarked on the same API and with the same GPU, for reference. The additional cores of the Ryzen 9 5950X will help it overpower the Core i9-11900K in most benchmarks though, as we have already seen on Geekbench.
