Intel Core i5-9600KF Rendering Benchmarks

Rendering tests are a long-time favorite of reviewers and benchmarkers, as the code used by rendering packages is usually highly optimized to squeeze every little bit of performance out. Sometimes rendering programs end up being heavily memory dependent as well - when you have that many threads flying about with a ton of data, having low latency memory can be key to everything. Here we take a few of the usual rendering packages under Windows 10, as well as a few new interesting benchmarks.

CineBench R20 SingleThreaded
Core i5-9600KF CineBench R20 SingleThreaded Performance

The Core i5-9600KF sits between Core i3-9350KF and Core i5-11400. It is 0.2% lower than the Core i3-9350KF while being 0.4% higher than the Core i5-11400. In this benchmark, the Core i5-9600KF has an impressive performance, which is way ahead of the last generation Core i5-8600K by 17%. Again, the Core i5-8600K tumbles down the chart, falling behind its Coffee Lake Refresh-based successor. That's a ~17% generational speed-up in this title. The Core i5-8600K clearly shows how significantly the mid-range Coffee Lake-based CPUs fall behind the Coffee Lake Refresh models. The Core i5-9600KF's performance earns it the 34th place. Intel's Core i5-9600KF notches a small win over the Core i5-8600K, but opens up an impressive lead over the stock Ryzen 5 3600X. Overall, the Core i5-9600KF is an average performer with its 6-cores and 6-threads in this benchmark.
