This is strange to me, how could it be that the 10900k performs worse than the 10900x?

It's a different micro-architecture and the X299 chipset is sitting somewhere between the server range than the consumer range, so whilst they are all closely related there are differences in the silicon. You've also got double the memory bandwidth to work with, one of the reasons we're going to look at RAM overclocking again and how spreading the load affects it.

Very interesting. One other question, would Ryzen still hold the lead like in these results when you have fx like Ozone on the masterbus, or recording live tracks? I only ask because of the difference in single thread performance.
