Intel Core i5-9600K tested again

This time by Chinese video streaming portal

Another set of benchmarks on Intel's Coffee Lake CPUs has surfaced. This time it looks like the six-core Intel Core i5-9600K, which is supposed to make it to market later this week, has been put through its paces running Cinebench R15 and CPU-Z.


This time the leak comes from a Chinese video streaming portal. In the past those guys revealed Cinebench scores from upcoming CPUs as well and therefore it doesn’t come as too much of a surprise that they’ve done the same in the case of the Intel Core i5-9600K. The CPU has been tested in both stock and overclocked modes. In overclock mode, the Core i5-9600K has been pushed up to 5.2GHz with a voltage of 1.507 Volt which is quite high.

At the moment isn't clear if this was a manual overclock or an auto overclock using the built-in BIOS tuner. As you might know, the Core i5-9600K sports the new STIM (Soldered Thermal Interface Material) and even still, the temperatures were going past 90C at full load across all cores. We believe that the high temperature is linked to the high voltage.

Performance wise, the upcoming Core i5-9600K can hit in Cinebench R15 up to 1034 points with stock frequency and 1207 points at 5.2GHz. Compared to our Core i5-8600K, the difference in both scenarios is very tiny and around 1%. Furthermore the Core i5-9600K has been tested with CPU-Z multi-thread benchmark hitting 2919 points at stock frequency and 3579 points in overclock mode. In both cases the score look pretty low and we hope to see more benchmarks during next days.
