Should you be running lots of Perl scripts, the Perl performance was still faster on Intel CPUs.

The Core i9 9900K is also faster with R.

If running a database server on your desktop for development purposes or trying to make a cheap server, the Ryzen 9 3900X did lead in the PostgreSQL benchmarks.

But for those that are fans of Redis, the performance was better on the Intel side.

Also if running Memcached, the Intel performance is better at least for a lightly loaded desktop.

The Nginx web server sided with the 9900K while Apache was faster on Ryzen.

The test where Ryzen won by the widest margin is with ctx-clock, the simple program measuring the time needed to perform a context switch. Due to the various CPU speculative execution mitigations, the Core i9 9900K takes much longer to perform a context switch now with modern systems and their default mitigation settings.
