Recently as part of my learning and development, I decided to pick up the "skillset" and learn the way of how to build a desktop from scratch. As part of the configuration, I have gone ahead with the Intel Core i9-9900KF processor.
There are a few reasons why I have gone ahead with this processor instead:
1) I am a fan of Intel.
2) Since a desktop PC should serve me at the bare minimum of 3-5 years, I should go for the highest available specifications that are within my budget range.
3) Positive reviews are seen online.
After four (4) weeks of using this newly built desktop, I have to admit that I am impressed and happy with the performance thus far! I know that the overall performance has to be complemented with other hardware peripherals and can't be solely based on the CPU unit. Below is some statistics pulled using CPU-Z.
As per the statistics produced above, the performance benchmark that I derived through the software tool is pretty amazing!
Diving deeper into the comparison with other submitted benchmark.
In the scenario during single-thread processing, my CPU unit is a marginally not performing well comparing with Intel Core i9-9900K
However, in the scenario during multi-thread processing, my CPU unit comes in 2nd place just below the Intel Core i9-9900KS series.
There are still a few scenarios that I am going to try out in terms of putting this desktop to a magnitude of testing. Some of the situations are: such as running an AI model, bench-marking the speed of compiling a relatively large project solution using Visual Studio, or even running a full cluster of Virtual Machines (VMs). I will undoubtedly share more results in future posts.
