10th Gen Intel Core i5-10600K Cinebench R20 Score Leaks Out: Beats the Ryzen 5 3600 and the Core i7-9700K

The Cinebench R20 score of the 10th Gen Intel Core i5-10600K has surfaced and it’s better than we had initially anticipated. The 10600K is going to be Intel’s next midrange CPU for gamers and mainstream consumers, and this is undoubtedly excellent news.


The 10th Gen i5 scores a healthy 3,716 points in Cinebench R20 multi-threaded beating the Ryzen 5 3600 as well as the Core i7-9700K. It’s more than 40% faster than its predecessor, the Core i5-9600K. The Comet Lake chip gets an upgrade in the form of hyperthreading and a higher boost clock. Considering how well CB utilizes multi-threaded CPU, this result seems quite legit.

Ryzen 5 3600X4923895
Core i7-9700K4663656
Ryzen 7 3700X4944856

The single-core score sees less of an improvement, but then again, the Coffee Lake chips already perform well enough in single-threaded workloads, thanks to their high boost clocks. Nevertheless, 10600K still manages to edge past the Core i7-9700K and the Ryzen 5 3600 in the single-core test as well.

Earlier today, a well-known leaker had shared the pricing of the entire 10th Gen Comet Lake-S lineup. The source claimed that the figures were from a particular score and excluded the VAT. While it’s hard to say whether the leak was legit, it did paint an expected picture.

If these leaked prices were indeed correct, then Intel’s next-gen desktop CPUs will be priced similar to the present 9th Gen lineup. While they will continue to lag behind the Ryzen 3000 chips in multi-threaded workloads, gaming and single-threaded tasks will see a decent uplift.
