Leaked Intel Core i9 9900K Review Praises CPU – Claims It Intel’s Hidden Trump Card

Easy Overclocking With The Gigabyte Z390 AORUS Master Motherboard

An Intel Core i9 9900K review was posted online ahead of time but something that I have learned over the years is that once something is posted, it is pretty hard to get rid of it. The Intel Core i9 9900K review praised the CPU and claims that the processor is pretty easy to overclock. The following system was used for testing:

The Intel Core i9 9900K review is much like the one that Principle Technologies did but the AMD Ryzen 2700 has been used in this case instead of the 2700X. That changes things a bit as the 2700X has a higher clock speed and features XFR2.

The Tech Revolutionist was able to overclock the CPU to 5.225 GHz on all cores, which is pretty impressive keeping in mind that no exotic cooling was used. To give you a reference the Intel Core i9 9900K has a base clock of 3.6 GHz and it can boost to 5 GHz, but not on all cores.

The Intel Core i9 9900K review reveals that the chip was able to beat the AMD Ryzen 2700 in all the tests except for Deus Ex Mankind Divided, which is kind of an odd one out. You can check out all the numbers here.  The Tech Revolutionist Intel Core i9 9900K review concluded as follows:

The Core i9 brings about significant speed bumps which can be directly felt by the users in different usage scenarios. The updated architecture also has brought an even more optimized and power efficient processor onto the table, showing us the true potential of Intel, rather than just small controlled updates for the sake of releasing new products.

The Intel Core i9 9900K review calls the CPU the hidden trump card for 2018. I for one do not agree. For the price, this is the kind of performance that you expect to get out of the box. I still think that the CPU is priced too high and that it is going to be a tough sell.
