Initial testing of the processor Intel Core i9-9900K, which showed a significant superiority of the new product over the competing AMD Ryzen 7 2700X, caused discontent on the network due to the questionable test methodology. In this regard, Principled Technologies had to re-test the chip in benchmarks, and this time the result was completely different.
According to the updated data, in games Intel, the Core i9-9900K on average bypasses the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X by only 12%. In many applications, the difference in performance between the two processors is measured by only a few percent in favor of the product Intel.
Despite the slight superiority in performance, the new flagship Intel is much more expensive than its AMD counterpart. While the latter can be purchased for $ 320, the Intel Core i9-9900K costs between $ 530 and € 840.
