The single core score looks basically identical to an 8700K, Multi is only just about 2000 points higher from the 2 extra cores, Guessing it'll be the same story with the 9900K but maybe 1-2K higher on the multi part due to hyperthreading.

EDIT

I should really read before commenting in future

Yeah, pretty predictable really.

I've got a major gaming PC overhaul due as soon as the 9900K is available and I'm a bit confused about something, perhaps you guys can help. I bought an existing Asus Z370 mobo that already had a firmware update available to support the 9th-gen parts but my current setup is based on an 1150 part, not 1151. Almost certainly the new mobo will have an older, non-9th-gen-supporting, firmware on it. I'm a bit worried about how I go about applying the newer firmware to the mobo with only the future 9900k available to me. I have vague memories about mobo makers helping out with this by shipping out a heavily-crippled cpu to allow for the update to happen - is this a thing still or does anyone know how I can deal with this 'catch-22' situation? My only 'plan-b' is to buy a Celeron 4900 (about £30 plus shipping) as that would definitely work but I wondered if you guys may have any thoughts or experiences. Cheers.

The Asus Z370 mobo may have a bios flashback button on the I/O, Simply put the bios file on a USB drive, Put the drive into the correct rear USB slot and press and hold the bios flashback button, If it doesn't have that then the only option would be to buy a cheap 1151 CPU like a Pentium G4900 which can be had for around 30 quid used from amazon.

I'm somewhat surprised that the 9700K single core perf is no better than of the 8700K. I would have expected more performance pr clock after one generation. But perhaps I/we should just be happy that the 9700K score is without OC. That is something, but more pr clock should really be there also.



Or? What am I missing here?

If you follow the link back to our stock i7 8700K testing it gets 6083 points, so the i7 9700k is better with its 6297 points.

Remember that the results quoted in the article are from a 5GHz i7 8700K. The i7-9700K boosts up to 4.9GHz, assuming the rumours are correct. The question now is how much well the 9700K overclocks. 5GHz should be relatively easy, but will it get much higher? It would be awesome if the average chip could get higher than 5GHz.

So this is soldered right? That alone makes this generation a decent update, even if 200MHz clock boost isn't much to write home about.

The 9900K and 9700K are soldered yes, the i5 version still uses jam or whatever they've been using for a while.
