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

Why you can trust Tom's Hardware Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out more about how we test.

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.
