What's complete madness is the fact that MOST games and applications made today use 6-8 threads, so you'd think with this recent development they would have emphasized quad core more strongly, or perhaps added an 8-core score (unrealistic), either way, the wrong move seems to be exactly what they did.
The i3 9350K beats the i5 9400, R5 3600, and even the i9 9980XE. They had to break their algorithm to put Intel in the top spots..... Shame.
Real-world performance clearly shows that the 9350K is insufficient for most recent games and applications, but yet here it is, in one of the top spots.
Userbenchmark also took a decent metric (30% SC, 60% QC, 10 MC) and turned it into an abominable (40% SC, 58% QC, 2% MC)
If they would have adjusted it to just 40% SC, 55% QC, 5% MC, people probably wouldn't have caught on, but considering this benchmark now puts an i3 ahead of an i9...
Userbenchmark is a complete joke.
