Intel Core i9-10900K Review
But if you want top value in any task, gaming or content creation, AMD and its line of Zen 2-based Ryzen processors are the way to go. Intel's 10th Generation Core i9-10900K mainstream flagship CPU excels in elite gaming scenarios, but its aging architecture can't quite keep pace with AMD's newer, nimbler 7nm designs on value and multi-threaded performance.

Intel Core i9-10900K CPU Review
The new chip lands the fastest non-AVX512 single-threaded speed in our lineup by a fair margin though. Black Hole 4.2

Intel Core i9-10900K - Review
Given the data we have collected, this processor has little to do with respect to the AMD Ryzen 9 3900X and Ryzen 9 3950X processors. There are more performance issues than performance benefits that these processors bring.

You SHOULDN’T Buy an i9-10900K - Intel i9-10900K Review - TechteamGB
With that said, if you want to do anything else, if you want to do you know, productivity, some work, anything in between, then a risin ship is a better option for you. It's a better value for money, You get more cores, more productivity, performance, and like I said, we do take a slight hit in games this sort of range I don't think it matters all that much With that said, I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments down below. Is this a chip you are impressed by?

Intel Core i9-10900K CPU Review & Benchmarks: Gaming, Overclocking vs. AMD Ryzen 3900X & More
That's it's just a more compelling part for those kinds of workloads for gaming. Technically, the 10900 K is the leadership part. It drops in exactly where the 9900 K was where we recommended the 9900 A where we recommend the 10900 K despite its name and being absolutely horrible, Maybe we should call the Ten 1990 to do is come back and look at this for the 10 600 K and you can check our other video later in the day for that with additional depth on how all of it works

If you liked the video, you guys know what to do

TL;DR:. Tested vs R9 3950X and i9 10900K. At **1080p** - There can be a noticable difference in performance depending on how CPU heavy a game is, but still completely fine to use this combo at this resolution, but recommended to get something better(Ryzen 5000 series CPU for example) for high refresh rate gaming.

As we noted after our Intel testing, **4000MHz or higher RAM only really makes sense for high-end systems, like a Ryzen 9 3950X or Core i9 10900K with an RTX 2080 Ti,** where you're already essentially at the limits of consumer PC gaming. > For all that is holy, don't forget to set your RAM to its XMP speeds in the BIOS.
