With a whopping 5.3 Ghz max turbo frequency and faster single core performance than the 9900K, this processor could be the world's fastest gaming CPU by a substantial amount. However, having 2 more cores might increase the ring bus latency. Surprisingly for multi-threaded workload, the 10900K is only 3% behind the 3900X even with 2 fewer physical cores.—May '20

This 10 core 20 thread Comet Lake-S CPU, released late April, comes with base clock of 3.7GHz and can boost up to 5.3GHz thanks to Thermal Velocity Boost. This CPU has TDP of 125W which is significantly higher than last-gen i9-9900K, this means that this CPU requires even more powerful cooling and better power delivery (higher wattage and/or quality PSU, and better motherboard VRM) than last-gen i9-9900K. If you're looking for highest FPS as well as consistent FPS for your gaming needs, this CPU's a way to go thanks to high single core and multi core performance, as well as lower latency which helps in some titles.

Comment  cpu.userbenchmark.com/...

Comparison between i9-10900K and i9-9990XE, both of them consumes large amount of power thanks to very high clock and large amount of cores. i9-10900K trails i9-9990XE by slight margin in multithreaded benchmark despite having 4 fewer hyperthreaded cores and slightly lower all-core boost clock but otherwise i9-10900K is ahead of i9-9990XE in most aspects.
