With the second generation AMD Ryzen processors leaving a trail of dust, Intel has a lot to do in order to catch up with team red. It looks like they have pulled out all the stops and managed to get their Core i9-9900K processor to the front yet again.

Based on some rumours, the Core i9-9900K has managed to score an overall of 9,862 on the Time Spy benchmark with a break down of 9,725 for the graphics score and 10,719 for the CPU score. The test was done using an Asus z370-F Strix Gaming motherboard which is backwards compatible with existing Z370 boards as well as a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. To put the scores into perspective, the chip has managed to beat the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X by more than 1,500 points. The rumours also state that the processor will come with 8-cores and 16-threads, boost clock speeds of 5GHz out-of-the-box but it will only be across two cores and 4.7GHz will be the max across all cores.

This could indicate that the chip that was tested could be an engineering sample or a processor that was overclocked before the test was performed.
