8-core Core I9-11900k Vs. 12-core Raider R9 5900x: Pcmark10 Productivity Test Intel Leads By 12%


[Bestbuy618DIY Hardware Channel]As the performance bearer of the 11th generation Core desktop processors, the i9-11900K has snatched the title of “most powerful gaming processor” and turned it into an ace worth having for gaming enthusiasts. However, the 14nm process i9-11900K cores are reduced by two when compared to the previous generation i9-10900K, which does not slow down the gaming experience but ensures productivity, which makes content creators and high performance users concerned, but according to Intel’s data, this concern should be unnecessary. According to the introduction, when compared to the previous generation, the i9-11900K improves video creation workflow performance by up to 88 percent; photo editing performance by up to 8 percent; and office efficiency efficiency by up to 12 percent.

Even when compared to the 12-core, 24-thread AMD Raider R9 5900X, the i9-11900K provides a 35% increase in 4K video editing performance, a 14% increase in photo editing performance, an 8% increase in office productivity, and a 38% increase in AI performance. Furthermore, the i9-11900K supports the new Intel Fast Video Sync technology, which supports 10-bit AV1/12-bit efficient video encoding, decoding, and end-to-end compression, as well as integrated HDMI 2.0, HBR3, Thunderbolt 4 support, and Intel Wi-Fi 6E, among other features that can improve the overall multimedia creation experience. Avoiding hardware limitations on high-end gamers’ operations, for example, while enabling live streaming, material recording, and efficient completion of video and other content creation.

So, how does the i9-11900K ensure productivity, and can it ignore the core-thread gap in real-world applications when compared to the Raider R9 5900X? The answer will be revealed soon. Previously, Intel announced that the 11th generation Core mobile processors will have outstanding single-core performance to make people shine, such as i7-1165G7, H35 processor single-core performance can even compete with the 10th generation Core desktop processors. The new Cypress Cove architecture is used in the 11th generation Core desktop processors, which successfully integrates “the 11th generation Core CPU architecture and graphics architecture of the 10nm process into the 14nm process,” and thus has powerful single-core performance. According to Intel, the Cypress Cove architecture improves IPC (instructions per clock) by up to 19% over its predecessor, while bringing Intel’s Xe graphics architecture to desktop platforms for the first time, providing up to 50% improvement in integrated graphics computing performance.

As a result, the i9-11900K has multi-core performance comparable to a 10-core processor while significantly improving single-core performance. The i9-11900K with 8 cores and 16 threads and the i9-10900K with 10 cores and 20 threads were put to the test.

In addition to rendering scenarios where all cores are easily consumed, the i9-11900K has improved daily office, web browsing, and content creation experiences. For example, when tested using Webxprt 3, the i9-11900K improved its overall score by 8% compared to the i9-10900K and its PCMark 10 test score by 6%. Furthermore, the i9-11900K supports dual-channel DDR4-3200MHz memory and up to 20 PCIe 4.0 lanes (16 4), allowing it to better utilize the performance of next-generation graphics cards and storage, making it smoother and more efficient when launching large files and loading projects For example, in PCMark 10 testing, the i9-11900K overall score is about 2% higher than the Rex R9 5900X, with the productivity test up to 12% higher, though it is 3% lower in terms of digital content creation.

The PCMark 10 application test was carried out to determine the performance of the two platforms in Office Office software and Egde actual load. In terms of overall performance, the i9-11900K and Raider R9 5900X were on par, and the Word and Excel tests were 6 percent and 8 percent behind, respectively; however, the remaining two tests were ahead by 6 percent and 7 percent. Through WebXprt 3 web page load test, the overall performance of the i9-11900K is about 7 percent ahead of the Raptor R9 5900X, of which the online work test is ahead by up to 24 percent.

The i9-11900K outperformed the Raider R9 5900X by about 6% in the PR and AE image creation tests, but was 13% behind in the format conversion test in Lightroom. In Geekbench tests, the i9-11900K outperforms the Raider R9 5900X by 13% in single-core performance, but in multi-core performance, the gap between 8 and 12 cores is difficult to bridge, and the difference between the Raider R9 5900X and the Raider R9 5900X is about 30%. The difference between the R9 5900X and the R9 5900 is approximately 30%.

As a result, the difference in rendering performance between the i9-11900K and the Rex R9 5900X is also visible. The i9-11900K took approximately 30%-40% longer than the Raider R9 5900X in Blender BenchMark testing, but Intel has introduced a new Adaptive Boost Technology for the i9-11900K, which can further improve the multi-core Raid frequency, allowing the i9-11900K to reach 5.1GHz full core frequency without overclocking (cooling configuration allows). As a result, in some application scenarios, enabling ABT can significantly improve performance. For example, PR export video time can be reduced by 8%, AE export video time by 7%, and Lightroom photo format conversion time by about 10%; in Blender BenchMark, time was reduced by 3-4% after enabling ABT.

AI is rapidly increasing in PC applications, such as AI voice noise reduction used in audio and video calls, thanks to Intel’s promotion. This time, Intel’s 11th generation Core desktop processors support deep learning acceleration and vector neural network instruction sets, rounding out Intel’s comprehensive AI feature coverage in notebook and desktop platforms.

More powerful AI features, such as intelligent image filling and processing, image recognition, analysis, and categorization, and AI automatic object recognition tracking in video, can also boost productivity. Thus, the i9-11900K improves AI performance by 38% over the Raider R9 5900X while also empowering productivity and optimizing the image content creation experience. For example, when tagging (image categorizing) the same 500 photos with Nero AI Photo Tagger, the i9-11900K takes about 5% less time than the Raron R9 5900X. It is also worth noting that Intel not only improves AI performance on the chip side, but also works closely with software developers and OEMs to accelerate the development of the AI ecology on the PC side.

As AI is integrated into more software tools and application scenarios, Intel’s AI advantage will become one of the keys to increasing productivity. Intel also invests continuously in promoting software and hardware collaborative innovation and optimization.

Software is one of the “six technology pillars” proposed by Intel, and “hard and soft synergy” is becoming an important driving force for future computing development. To fully optimize the PC experience, Intel has assembled a team of more than 15,000,000 software engineers worldwide and established an open ecosystem with more than 12 million developers, covering a wide range of fields such as games, productivity and professional software, cloud computing, and artificial intelligence (AI).

These inputs, which cannot be seen through parameters, are also a guarantee of the i9-11900K’s high productivity output and an important competitive advantage for Intel. Due to the limited number of cores, the 11th generation Core i9-11900K has a slight performance gap with the 12-core, 24-thread AMD Raider R9 5900X in multi-threaded performance scenarios such as rendering, but the i9-11900K performs even better in daily Office work, web browsing, and gaming Furthermore, with Intel bringing AI to desktop platforms, the i9-11900K can deliver improved performance in content creation, image analysis, and other application scenarios, thanks to a 38% increase in AI performance over competing products.

In the game scenario, the i9-11900K is nearly fully ahead of the sharp R9 5900X, but the gap between the two in the productivity scenario has been significantly reduced, though Intel still outperforms AMD in some scenarios, but the “hard” – the number of cores Productivity is still impacted. So, keep the hardware and software on the basis of collaborative innovation; if Intel can make breakthroughs in process technology, architecture, and the number of cores, its lead over AMD may be extended further. This also contributes to Intel’s smooth progress with the 7nm process and the next generation of processors – to achieve a major breakthrough in x86 architecture Alder Lake, which is something to look forward to!
