Intel Core i9-9900KS Is No. 1 Fastest Processor In The World According To Userbenchmark

Finally, some people got their hands-on by brief testing the last fastest Intel’ Coffee Lake Core i9-9900KS as know as “Special” edition CPU for gamers boasting with 4.0 GHz Base Clock and effective overclocking capacity of up to 5.0 GHz stable frequency across all cores. Obviously, it’s a 14nm++ refresh technology running on 8 Cores and 16 Threads with 16 MB L3 Cache. According to Intel, this particular i9-9900K Special edition is the best gaming processor that will edge out any existing consumer CPU lineup from AMD and Intel itself.

Amazingly, this time around momomo_us from twitter has spotted this incredible number ONE rating out of 1183 chips given to i9-9900KS from Userbenchmark website public database. At a time of writing, just 48 minutes had passed since anonymous user submitted these results. Stunningly, average score is 4% faster than recent previous i9-9900KF number ONE champion. Userbenchmark’s custom CPU name ratings are also given in terms of Gaming, Desktop and Workstation. Staggeringly, the highest UFO rating name taken by Gaming with 104%, Desktop gets 106% and Workstation takes 111%. Officially, i9-9900KS is the world’s fastest consumer CPU according to userbenchmark website.

This site’s processor requirements for gaming and casual productivity is somehow unpopular for many Techtubers like Hardware Unboxed, Linus Tech Tips, Bitwit and Paul’s Hardware. Officially, userbenchmark has claimed that single core and quad core performance of nowaday’s CPUs are more favorable to them rather than multicore of up to 8 or 16 Cores. Exactly, this statement came out right after AMD’s Ryzen 3000 series launch where 16 Core 32 Thread Ryzen 3950X was announced. As a result, Steve from Hardware Unboxed called this statement some kind of “suspicious” and he said that latest games like Assassin’s Creed Odyssey fully utilizes 6 or more available cores to run smoothly. In fact, you may see userbenchmark’s “Best User Rated CPU” and “Best Value For Money CPU” ratings where Intel takes all three top spots. Yes, it looks suspicious since Intel is having 14nm shortages and really not selling as fast as Ryzen value for money CPUs like Ryzen 5 2600 and 3600 according Mindfactory sales in European market.

All Intel flagship processors take top four spots in ” Fastest Average Effective Speed CPU” category in userbenchmark database. Currently, i9-9900KF is officially fastest one but enthusiasts must wait little bit to see real-world benchmarks from independent reviewers on i9-9900KS results.

Here, you might say i5-9400F is totally irrelevant CPU for value for money top spot since it can’t overclock and has only 6 threads compared to Ryzen 5 3600 which possesses 12 threads and overclocking capability for just under $200. Also, i5-9600K is ridiculously expensive processor without stock cooler and performs 20-30% slower than Ryzen 5 3600 in V-Ray, Video Editing and CAD applications. This above graph is in fact suspicious where Steve from Hardware Unboxed was right.

Hopefully, userbenchmark team realize their mistake and take multicore benchmarks into strong consideration. Common guys, it’s 2019 already. Quad cores are no longer relevant today’s triple A gaming.

I need this! Waiting, have the money, looking several times a day. Have seen many people talking about listings for it but can’t find it anywhere!! Hurry up Intel! Two defective 9900k’s in a row! Time for you to make it right!

Well.. they are right.. tons of cores do nothing for gaming still.. a few games prefer 6-8 cores, but no games prefer 16 or 32 cores… clock speeds per core is thus the winning factor in ALL games… show me a single game that runs 16 or 32 core at low clock better than 8 core 16 threads at a higher clock.. spoiler: there is none 🙂

Turn On any 6 Core processor by running Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and at the same time you should be running spotify, steam, 10 chrome tabs, 4k video encoding for youtube, MS Word & Powerpoint for some assignments, streaming on twitch. Then, Ryzen 9 3900X is for you to multitask, just like Linus Sebastian from LTT has recently upgraded to 12 core 24 thread beast. It’s all about REAL-WORLD situation of average PC user. Soon, Intel will also follow AMD’s footsteps next 2 years, eventually dragging whole PC Game developers to create triple A games optimized for more than 8 cores.… Read more »

Would you say it’s not a good idea to upgrade to a 9900k(s)? I know it’s the last of the 1151 but it seems to be more stable since it’s been refined for a while. With Ryzen there are still some issues to sort out I feel. How future proof would a 9900k(s) build be? Currently I have a i5 3570k OC’d, but am thinking it might be time for an upgrade.

Certainly, I would recommend you to wait for Comet Lake Desktop Processors since upcoming 14nm Comet Lake Core i9 might be coming with up to 10 core 20 threads, another sweet juice may be produced from Intel’s 14nm+++ technology
