AMD may want to be concerned. Based on alleged Time Spy benchmark results shared by hardware leaker @_rogame, the AMD Ryzen 9 3900X will have a strong rival in the upcoming Intel Core i9-10900KF.
The i9-10900KF is one of Intel’s forthcoming Comet Lake desktop chips and will compete with AMD’s recently launched Ryzen 3000-series CPUs. More specifically, the i9-10900KF will be trading blows with the Ryzen 9 3900X, which makes today’s fight so interesting.
As a quick summary, the i9-10900KF is on Intel’s 14nm node and will feature 10 cores, 20 threads and 20MB of L3 cache. The chip reportedly has a 3.7 GHz base clock and, thanks to Intel’s Thermal Velocity Boost (TVB) feature, boost to 5.3 GHz. As dictated by the “F” suffix, the i9-10900KF is part of the breed of Comet Lake CPUs that lack integrated graphics.
