Intel boldly claims that Core i9-11900K will offer 11% faster storage performance than Ryzen 9 5950X

Instead of raw compute performance, Intel has taken a new approach of comparison against its biggest rival AMD. Ryan Shrout has recently shared some storage performance results that show Core i9-11900K’s PCIe Gen 4 storage performance is up to 11% faster than Ryzen 9 5950X on PCMark 10 Quick System Drive Benchmark.

The performance slide teased by Intel’s Ryan Shrout shows the Samsung 980 PRO 1 TB PCI-Express 4.0 x4 M.2 NVMe SSD performance when powered by a Core i9-11900K processor, compared to the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X.

As TechPowerUP says, the PCMark 10 Quick System Drive Benchmark is used to evaluate storage performance on both machines. As there was a separate drive for boot, the Samsung 980 PRO is used as a dedicated test drive.

When asked whether the Samsung 980 PRO was installed on the CPU-attached M.2 slot on the AMD machine or not, Shrout clarified the drives were tested on CPU-attached M.2 slots on both platforms.

The test is said to be done via the x16 slot with a riser card to make sure it was CPU attached on both platforms. The tweet shows Intel is promising to provide good PCIe Gen 4 storage performance over AMD and it will be interesting to see if those claims are correct for everyone or not.
