Intel claim the new i9-9900K CPU will be the best gaming processor around, so let’s compare it to the old king, the i7-8700K and find out what the differences in performance are to help you decide which to pick, or see if it’s worth upgrading from the i7 to i9 CPU.
In these benchmarks I’ll be testing 10 games at 1080p, 1440p and 4K resolutions with all setting levels, as well as productivity workloads and other applications such as video encoding with Adobe Premiere to help you decide which CPU is worth it.
