Intel Core i5-9600K Coffee Lake tested

More benchmarks soon

We can finally show some of our own results regarding the Core i5-9600K. A few months ago we have started testing all the recent CPUs regarding a variety of programs and benchmarks and meanwhile we’re starting to add Coffee Lake Refresh chips. The CPU looks very close to the Core i5-8600K, however in some tests the previous chip looks a bit faster probably due to some BIOS optimization.

Our tests confirm what we've already seen with all the other leaks. At standard clock speeds and in the applications we've tested, the Core i5-9600K fast like the Core i7-5820K which sports six threads more. If we set all the CPUs to 4.2 GHz then the Core i5-9600K is on average 2% slower than the Core i5-8600K probably due some BIOS optimization. Both models should be on the same level since the Core i5-9600K is just a refresh of the previous version.

In single-threaded applications with same clock speed, like for instance in "Black Hole", we can see that the Core i5-9600K at default is about 10% faster than the Core i5-8600K and 35% faster than the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X processors.

In addition we also ran a couple of benchmarks with our test sample pushed to 5 GHz at 1.26 volts on all cores. The benchmarks have been conducted on an ASRock Z390 Phantom Gaming-ITX/ac motherboard with Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO 16GB DDR4-3600 C18 memory. In combination with a Corsair H150i PRO RGB 360 CPU cooler the CPU reached 80°C quite quickly running Cinebench R15 and scoring 2'148 points. During the next days we will test the Core i7-9700K as well and we will continue with our Intel Z390 motherboards as well.

If you want see some specific comparison or benchmark just let us know and we will give a shot!
