Yet more scores for Intel’s planned 9000 series of processors have leaked onto Geekbench, this time showcasing the company’s i9-9900K, the new flagship of Intel’s desktop lineup on their 300-series motherboard platform.  

The i9-9900K is designed to offer users eight cores and sixteen threads, matching AMD’s Ryzen offerings while also delivering higher clock speeds and a maximum single-core frequency of 5.0GHz, promising high levels of single-threaded and multi-threaded performance. 

On Geekebench, the i9-9900K is shown to offer a single-threaded score of 6248 and a multi-threaded score of 33037, surpassing our stock i7-8700K results by a considerable margin (link). However, it is also worth noting that this result offers a lower single-threaded score than previously leaked i7-9700K Geekbench results, with the benchmark’s results rundown hinting at the use of a slower memory clock speed, which may hamper the CPU’s final benchmark score. 

The test below uses an ASUS Z370 ROG Maximus X Hero motherboard, with 16GB of DDR4 memory running at an unknown speed.

At this time, it is unknown when Intel plans to release their new 9000 series CPU lineup or how much the new series will cost, though rumours of a 14nm production shortage at Intel suggests that the company will have difficulty keeping these new SKUs in stock.
