For testing the processors everything will be set to auto in the BIOS. The reason we do is because most people will have this setup on their own PC. This is the default mode if you do not go into the BIOS and change anything. For both Intel and AMD systems we did however enable the XMP profile for our memory.

Here are the specifications of all four processors we will be testing today.

Core i9-9900K: 3.6 GHz / 5.0 GHz
Core i7-8700K: 3.7 GHz / 4.7 GHz
Ryzen 9 3900X: 3.8 GHz / 4.6 GHz
Ryzen 7 3700X: 3.6 GHz / 4.4 GHz
Ryzen 7 2700X: 3.7 GHz / 4.3 GHz
Ryzen 7 1700X: 3.4 GHz / 3.8 GHz
