AMD Ryzen 9 3900X Beats Intel’s Core i9-10900K (@ 5.3GHz) in Corona Render Test

Intel’s 10th Gen Comet Lake-S processors are an attempt from Intel to bring thread parity between its high-end offerings and AMD’s competing parts. The introduction of the Core i9-10900K, the company’s first 10-core chip is a major part of this plan. However, preliminary benchmarks show that although the Comet Lake-S flagship offers the best gaming performance, AMD’s Ryzen 9 chips are still a much better option for content creation and pretty much every non-gaming workload.

As you can see, the same sentiment is once again highlighted in the Corona Render Test (results in the image above). The Ryzen 9 3900X is 3 seconds or 13% faster than the Core i9-10900K in the rendering benchmark despite costing less. At present, the latter is up for pre-order well above its MSRP of $500, while the former costs just over $400. You’d be better off option for the 16-core Ryzen 9 3950X that costs nearly the same as the 10900K ($699 at MC) which offers not only considerably better performance but is also more efficient.
