Why is the 9900KS using a older version of Geekbench? I would think that whomever tested it would have done a fresh install of the OS and would have downloaded the latest version.

I'm not sure what was fixed as far as Intel goes?

Geekbench 5.0.3 includes the following changes:

  • Improve compatibility with macOS 10.15 Catalina.
  • Add more devices to the built-in comparison charts.
  • Fix a validation error with the ORB/Vulkan workload on Intel GPUs.
Are results comparable from one version to another? Viewing recent results it looks like it's really popular with Apple's herd.

I mean, there's nothing revelatory here. Even the 3900x is a few % lessor versus the 9900 single threaded and an absolute monster in multithreads.

Adding 4C/8T at the same speeds just improves the multithreading. *shocking*

I just ignore anything nowadays that is not independent. For reasons exactly like this.

IMO a more fitting comparison is this:
18 core Core i9-9980XE vs 16 core Ryzen 9 3950X
ST Score: 1200 vs 1363
MT Scores 15895 vs 16722

Intels Highest-end HEDT chip loses to AMDs Highest-end Mainstream chip in both ST and MT. Intel has nothing to compete against Threadripper 3. AMD HEDT starts where Intel HEDT ends
