Intel i9-9900K Cinebench Score leaks via YouTube Video

Intel’s i9-9900K, the company’s planned 8-core, 16-thread successor to the Coffee Lake i7-8700K, has been showcased on video by HKEPC’s Lau Kin Lam, who showcased the processor clocked at 5GHz.  

In this video, Intel’s i9-9900K is able to achieve a multi-threaded score of 2166, a score that is extremely similar to a stock i9-7900X processor, a 10-core Skylake-X series processor. 

When compared to AMD’s 8-core, 16-thread Ryzen 7 2700X (which scored 1836 in out internal testing in Cinebench R15), Intel’s i9-9900K delivers a score that is around 330 more points in Cinebench’s Multi-core test, though it is worth noting that Intel’s CPU is overclocked in this instance. Even so, this 5GHz i9-9900K score represents a performance boost of around 18% over a stock AMD Ryzen 7 2700X. 

Sadly, this video doesn’t contain a single-threaded benchmark score, though it is likely that this score would be somewhere in the region of 220 points, as this is what we have achieved with Intel’s i7-8700K at 5GHz. Intel’s i9-9900K is based on Intel’s Coffee Lake architecture, making IPC gains unlikely. 

Intel’s i9-9900K is expected to release sometime within the next few months alongside the company’s new Z390 series motherboard chipset. 9000 series CPUs will also be supported on other 300-series chipsets, including Z370 if they contain an up to date BIOS which supports Intel’ latest processors.
