AMD has readjusted the price of its Ryzen 9 3900X to welcome the new Intel Comet Lake processors, and specifically, this 12-core 24-wire processor lowered its price across the pond to $ 410 . For reference, the 10-core, 20-wire Intel Core i9-10900K came in at a recommended price of $ 489 , though it actually sells for up to $ 510 , while the 8-core, 16-wire Intel Core i7-10700K is around 410. dollars , meaning that it is worth the same as the Ryzen option.
These really aren’t AMD’s direct rivals, these are the Intel Core i9-10900KF, which should be around $ 469, and the Intel Core i7-10700KF, which should be around $ 380. Hence the price adjustment.
Looking at massive tests, the Intel Core i9-10900K is around 7 percent faster in gaming compared to the Ryzen 9 3900X, but 12 percent slower in multicore tasks . If we add to this that our unit did not consume and warmed up as much as we had seen (a good sample for review), then AMD has preferred to touch up the price of its CPU to ensure the flow of sales, although it must be remembered that this Core i9 -10900K will become ” obsolete ” very quickly , and not only because of the Ryzen 4000 that will arrive in February, that under the role a Ryzen 4900X could be at least 29% faster in multicore , and that is that the rumors indicate that, probably , Intel could overtake Rocket Lake-S at the end of the year, which while still stagnant at 14nm, will use the Willow Cove architecture.
