(Higher is better)
A great third outing from AMDAMD has pretty much knocked it out of the park with its third-generation Ryzen products. The Ryzen 9 3900X clearly delivers excellent multi-threaded performance and very competitive gaming results.
Intel may be a bit late when it comes to joining in the industry with their very first mainstream octa core processor, but their i9-9900K is seriously a very remarkable debut. The intense enhancement in the processing power of this i9-9900K from Intel.
Though we have used an identical GPU across the benchmark, the Core-i9-9900K offer slightly better performance in almost all scenarios, in some cases, the difference in the performance (compared to the 9th Gen Core i7-9700K) might be negligible.
