The 10-core 20-thread Core i9-10850K has landed in our lab, bringing with it nearly identical specifications as Intel’s halo Core i9-10900K that holds the crown as the world’s fastest gaming processor (albeit by a slim margin). We’re sharing the results of our most relevant tests now, like gaming, application performance, and power testing, as they tell the pretty simple story behind the chip. We’ll post the full review with a bit more testing in the coming days. In many respects, the Core i9-10850K feels like a price cut that comes in disguise as a new product. A scant 100 MHz of frequency separates it from the $488 Core i9-10900K, but the 10850K’s recommended price of $453 represents a 7% savings. Given the price gouging we’ve seen on the 10900K due to its spotty availability, we expect the price deltas to be even larger at retail. That makes the 10850K a contender for our list of Best Gaming CPUs.As you’ll see below, the Core i9-10850K offers nearly the same level of performance as the 10900K in the majority of our tests and even ekes out a few wins throughout our benchmarks.The slight difference between the two chips raises the question: Why… Read full this story
