Intel’s purportedly incoming Core i9 Cascade Lake-X 10-main processor could wrestle to compete with rival chips from AMD, at minimum heading by a freshly leaked benchmark.
The intended Main i9 10000 X Cascade Lake-X, a 10-core superior-end desktop processor, was noticed by prolific leaker @momomo_us in the Geekbench databases of final results.

The chip reveals up with a foundation frequency of 3.4GHz and Turbo to 4.6GHz, in a Dell Precision 5820 workstation Personal computer, recording a solitary-core outcome of 5,019, and multi-core of 37,241.
The product particulars correspond with the the latest 18-core Cascade Lake-X Geekbench leak – and that beefier CPU was also benchmarked in a Dell Precision 5820 – offering the authenticity of the new leak a little bit more body weight.
At any fee, the benefits never glimpse too promising at 1st look, absolutely on the solitary-core front in any case. Multi-core seems considerably superior at 37,241, which would make this theoretical successor to the Main i9-9900X (10-core) on about the exact level – which does not bode properly for a generational successor. Nonetheless, we won’t be able to set too a lot stock in these leaked benchmark outcomes.
Matters get distinctly less spectacular when you think about AMD’s silicon, with the Ryzen Threadripper 2950X is just about as speedy in Geekbench 4 multi-main when we reviewed it, hitting 36,880, only a proportion level off Intel or thereabouts.
Of program, that Threadripper chip is a year old now, and AMD’s new Ryzen 9 3900X (3rd-gen mainstream processor) outdoes each that AMD CPU and this leaked Intel HEDT processor (as we noticed in our assessment where by it blasted way around 40,000 in multi-main). Which is when you have to action back and maybe let out a long and weighty ‘hmmm’…
Our parts editor, Monthly bill Thomas, notes that “the Intel Main i9-9900X will come in all around $989 (£989, AU$1,499). If this rumored stick to-up processor won’t be able to dethrone a mainstream AMD processor that expenditures 50 percent as considerably, Intel could possibly be in trouble.”
Of program, there’s anything of a minefield of caveats right here. This is just a leak and not confirmed to be real, and the benchmark could by some means be awry, or it could be an early (comparatively hobbled) engineering sample of the Cascade Lake-X 10-main processor – and it could just be entirely faux.
So, we obviously have to be careful about evaluating this benchmark to our overview effects, and not get carried absent in this article. Even if this leak is on the funds, it’s nonetheless just a solitary benchmark, and that barely tells the complete story.
All that claimed, this is hinting at a disappointing photo for the 10-core Intel HEDT offering, whilst expectations for Cascade Lake-X have not been established all that higher anyway. Of program, Intel is still hoping to eke as a lot as it can out of 14nm here, and which is most likely getting to be an significantly tough undertaking. So in that mild, what we’re looking at listed here could make sense – but we’d be foolish to attract any real conclusions nevertheless.
