Intel Core i9-9900KF Review: Disabled Graphics and No Discount

Far Cry 5, GTA: V, Hitman, and Project CARS 2

Far Cry 5

The differences between Intel's processors are slight as we encounter a graphics-imposed bottleneck.

Grand Theft Auto V

Grand Theft Auto V favors Intel architectures and, more generally, multi-core designs with high clock rates. This benchmark exposes a slight lead lead for the -9900KF in an overclocked configuration.


Slight differences between the two Core i9s boil down to typical run-to-run variance for this benchmark.

Project CARS 2

Although Project CARS 2 is purportedly optimized for threading, clock rates obviously affect this title's frame rates. Intel's per-core performance advantage pays big dividends in this title.
