3DMark Firestrike shows us similar scaling while the pack tightens up in the ultra test, anything below that 4K test has an expanding gap separating the 9900K from the leading Ryzen parts.
Time Spy being a DX12 benchmark makes for some interesting results as the 9900K comes back to life on the CPU test and does a good job of pulling a decent lead over the 3700X but with no hope of catching the 3900X. It’s nice to see the 9900K wake up finally but I am admittedly disappointed as I expected more fight than this from the flagship mainstream Intel CPU.

PCMark shows more of the same with Ryzen leading and the 9900K picking up the rear. The only test which the 9900K pulled ahead of the 3700X is in the digital content creation test, otherwise, it is utterly outpaced in these tests.
