Initially gaming benchmarks surface for Intel Core i9-10980XE slower than the i9 9900K & Ryzen 9 3900X


It seems that the initial gaming benchmarks for the upcoming Cascade Lake-X desktop processor, the Intel Core i9 10980XE. This processor comes with 18 cores, supports 36 threads, and can turbo enhance on all cores at three.8GHz. Nonetheless, it seems that this specific CPU is slower in Computer games than each the AMD Ryzen 9 3900X and the Intel Core i9 9900K.

The games that Lab501 tested have been: Far Cry: New Dawn, Dawn of War three and Metro Exodus. In Metro Exodus, the efficiency distinction was minimal (primarily due to the reality that this is mainly a GPU-bound title). In Dawn of War three, the i9 10980XE was slower by pretty much 20fps than the i9 9900K and the Ryzen 9 3900X.

The massive shocker in the gaming efficiency, even though, comes from Far Cry: New Dawn. As we’ve reported in the previous, Far Cry five and Far Cry: New Dawn primarily use/anxiety 1 CPU core/thread. As such, the Intel i9 10980XE is slower by 31fps than the Intel i9 9900K. It is also slower by 26fps than the AMD Ryzen 9 3900X.

Now definitely, the Intel i9 10980XE does not target Computer gamers. As such, it comes as no surprise that it can’t beat its older i9 higher-finish gaming models. In addition, do retain in thoughts that the i9 9900K can turbo enhance to four.7Ghz (on all cores). In other words, we’re speaking about a 1Ghz difference  – on all cores – amongst these two CPUs, a thing that definitely explains their efficiency distinction.

Prior to closing, it is worth noting that Lab501 initially had some troubles booting the Intel i9 10980XE. Regardless of whether newer BIOS updates – for the motherboards that are at the moment offered on the industry – will strengthen efficiency remains to be noticed.
