The Intel 9900K benchmarks from PT crippled the performance of the AMD Ryzen 2700X and publications caught on to what has happened. It was pretty silly that AMD did not say anything about the matter but now we have the official response and it is safe to say that AMD is not pleased.
The Intel 9900K vs AMD Ryzen 7 2700X tests were done again by PT and it is safe to say that even those were not complete. AMD pointed out the issues with both tests and showed the difference in performance in both tests. AMD also pointed out that the tests did not mention the performance of the Intel 9900K with the new Z390 motherboards. The images included here are courtesy of TPU.
Furthermore, AMD revealed some best practices of running benchmarks and there is a whole list of that. The response from AMD is very comprehensive indeed and I guess it was worth the wait, so to speak.
The Intel 9900K benchmarks are just the tip of the iceberg. Intel is not doing so well in the CPU market. The company is already having issues with the 10nm process. We heard that that chips based on the 10nm process would be coming out next year but that does not seem to be the case according to some reports.
From what we have heard, Intel will continue to ship chips based on the 14nm process next year as well. AMD, on the other hand, has already released chips based on the 12nm process and will release 7nm chips next year. Talking about which process is better is debatable but Intel is lagging behind to say the very least.
Until there is a clear announcement we are not sure what to expect. You should take this information with a grain of salt as there might be a 10nm surprise around the corner.
Furthermore, we have also heard that 14nm yields are not that great and that the B360 motherboards are going to be in short supply as well. If the Intel 9900K benchmarks controversy was not enough, add all this up and you get a major blunder by Intel. AMD is slowly but surely gaining ground.
