As much as I love AMD, this CPU should still be better for gaming. It is factory overclocked to 5GHz so you don't have to worry about silicone lottery.

And the leaked benchmarks are usually cherry picked. I'd be interested in having third party reviewers seeing how it actually performs.

Ultimately for a small performance difference in games AMD is still the better alternative because of cheaper packaging with mitherboards.

Don't get me wrong here, I'm a big intel fan, 5Ghz is no silicone lottery if you know anything about oc lol, anyway but that 5-10fps gaming at 200-300fps 1080P gaming is not going to make any different here (the higher resolution and settings you go the less gap), and If you look up benchmarks on Youtube, current Gen Ryzen use lot less CPU usage in most games, that mean you have a lot more headroom for other stuff, ppl like me like to open multiple things at the same time, and yes, I leave 2 or more games open at the same time + browser and whatever I need, my 5Ghz 8600k is just not enough.

3800x should have similar performance to the 9900k for multitask, they have the same cores and threads. And the 3000 series is the first generation where it catches up to Intel for IPC. Ryzen 9 3900x would be the direct competitor in this case.

In the end, I think software optimization would be the biggest difference maker in the competition. AMD chips were known to have issues with some video editing software. This has more to do with business relationship the companies have with each other.

The pricier and hard-to-find 9900KS is factory overclocked to 5.0 ghz on all cores… In comparison, the 9900KF is the gimpy version with onboard video/ Quick Sync Video (QSV) disabled. QSV assists with H.264 & H.265 processing when video rendering, etc. On my 9900K if I enable QSV along with my AMD Vega 64 I can render H.264 videos 2X as fast vs. having QSV disabled... Like the standard 9900K, there is no guarantee that the 9900KF will overclock all cores to 5.0 ghz just because the video is disabled...

I think you mixed up the Intel line up, the 9900KF is the new release without the GPU. This was released as a result of shortage of 9900K. A professional OC'er at Tom's hardware binned 200 9900K samples and bought a 9900KF and the 9900KF easily kept up with the top 20 9900K for watercooled OC. During the LN2 OC the KF ran 75Hz faster than the best K he had. It could be a fluke that he hit the lottery but the odds are pretty low.
