much cheaper ryzens are much faster core for core. most benchmark tools favor intel cpus. take benchmark of intel cpu's with a grain of salt.

The Core i9-9820x is kind of like the i7-7820XE (Extreme Edition). As it has 2 more cores and 4 more threads. Comparing the 7820x to the 9820x shows a 2% performance boost. However, the multi-core speed is 23% faster. As to be expected for 2 more cores and 4 more threads. The 9820x is actually 1% slower in the overclocked bench! In my opinion, this should be called a i7-9820 Extreme Edition as it is the first ever i9 ending with 820x. The other 820x's are i7's. So this is more of a Extreme Edition i7 than it is a i9. If i were to be forced to call it a i9, i would probably say it to be the slowest i9 ever (apart from the 9900K). So 7820x users, don't upgrade, it's not worth it. Unless you actually need the extra 2 cores and 4 threads.
