Intel Core i9-10900K Overclocked to 5.4GHz, Outperforming the 18-Core Xeon W-2195

The 10-core i9-10900K is the main attraction of Intel’s 10th Gen Comet Lake-S desktop lineup. It is also the only new SKU while the remaining parts are essentially refreshes of Coffee Lake-R with hyperthreading and a slightly higher boost. In a Baidu leak, a user managed to overclock the Core i9-10900K to a whopping 5.4GHz, scoring 3002 points in Cinebench R15 multi-core. That is higher than even the 18-core Skylake based Xeon W-2195. On the down side, Intel’s new flagship still falls behind the Ryzen 9 3900X and the 3950X which score 3,168 and 4,070 points, respectively.

This basically means that the 10900K should be able to compete with AMD’s Ryzen 9 3900X across a diverse range of workloads while finishing well ahead in gaming. The review embargo for Intel’s 10th Gen desktop processors lifts by the third week of May. Only then will we be able to get a definitive idea of where the new Blue chips stand compared to AMD’s Zen 2 offerings.
