Intel’s Comet Lake flagship, the i9-10900K, is the fastest gaming and desktop CPU currently available. This ten-core hyperthreaded processor can easily be overclocked so that all twenty threads run at an eye-watering 5.2 GHz. Whilst its stellar performance is second to none, it comes with a premium price tag of $488 USD. The 10900K also requires a new (Z490) LGA1200 motherboard, which Intel has indicated will remain compatible with Rocket Lake CPUs which are due later this year. Whilst AMD’s competing $420 USD Ryzen 3900X and $675 USD Ryzen 3950X do have a greater number of cores, their lower clock speeds and higher memory latency handicap them in non-rendering use cases. Overall, the 10900K has a 16% effective speed advantage over both the 3900X and 3950X. Users that do a lot of rendering should investigate dedicated hardware encoders such as NVENC and Quick Sync as these are far more efficient than CPU based rendering. Comparing the 10900K and 10700K shows that, when paired with a 2060S, the 10700K offers comparable gaming performance for 20% less money. [Jun '20 CPUPro]

The i5-10400F is a six-core hyperthreaded CPU from Intel’s latest Comet Lake series of desktop processors. This 65 W CPU has single core and all core boost frequencies of 4.3 GHz and 4.0 GHz, respectively. Whilst the 10400F will require a new LGA1200 motherboard, such as the Z490, Intel have guaranteed that the next generation of Rocket Lake CPUs will also be compatible with this chipset. The 10400F is aimed at mid-tier gaming PC builds, and as such, ships with a cooler but without integrated graphics. Despite being officially launched in Q2 of 2020, at the time of writing, the 10400F is still not widely available. Compared to the similarly priced Ryzen 5 3600, the 10400F’s lower memory latency gives it the lead in gaming and effective speed benchmarks. Since the Ryzen architecture creates a gaming bottleneck, it is necessary to upgrade to a higher tier, Intel CPU for better gaming performance. On the other hand comparing the i5-10400F and the i3-10100 shows that the 10100 offers comparable gaming performance for 22% less money whilst also including integrated graphics. [Jun '20 CPUPro]
