Intel Core i9-10900K CPU Review

Application Benchmarks Continued

SiSoft Sandra

We used SiSoftware Sandra version 2020.5.30.41 for all Sandra testing. The processor arithmetic Dhrystone and Whetstone performance results are represented in GFLOPS.

In this test, the results are fairly close across the board. The only CPU that really lags here is the older Core i9-9900K. AMD still manages a slight win here. Regardless, this is an impressive show for Intel given the core deficit.

Again, AMD manages a slight lead over the Intel Core i9-10900K. This is even true when the i9-10900K was overclocked. While impressive, it shows solid performance in this type of test.


Version 2.10 was used. We also ran the 1024m test for each test configuration with the appropriate thread count.

Oddly, the Core i9-9900K is slightly faster than our 10900K test system was at stock speeds. However, when overclocked the 10900K was considerably faster. This is another case where a solid all core overclock makes sense as there are substantial gains to be had. The improvement from overclocking gets the 10900K much closer to the 3900X, which is impressive.

WinRAR Benchmark

WinRAR 5.90 was used. We are looking at the KB/s that each CPU can process.

WinRAR has always been a weird test. It does benefit from additional threads, but it also favors clock speeds. Therefore, it’s not entirely surprising that the 10900K is the fastest configuration tested here. It gains a bit from overclocking as well.
