Those are the highlights from the 300+ benchmarks ran on the CPUs. Below is a side-by-side higher level look at all of the tests with a measurable difference between the two processors.

Or if wanting to sum all of this testing up... Here is the geometric mean from all of this system/CPU benchmarking:

The Ryzen 9 3900X in these CPU/system tests turned out to be just under 5% faster than the Core i9 9900K under this plethora of mostly real-world Linux/open-source workloads.

If wondering about the first place finishes, the Ryzen 9 3900X was in "first" (whether a narrow or wide margin) 55% of the time. But what about gaming? Let's move onto that.
