Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If you are looking to put this processor into an existing system, there is no real way to tell. We don’t know the other components and system configuration. If you are looking to purchase an entire system with this processor, then ask the manufacturer what the system speed is and test it yourself when you get it.  Also ask if it can be returned if it does not meet the speed they quoted you because that is like false advertising.

    The question doesn't make sense. First, you mention two fairly different CPUs with different clock rates. But second, "computer speed" doesn't make much sense with multi-core/multi-thread CPUs.

    Speed of what? What graphics subsystem is used and for what kind of work?

    To get any useful sense of "speed", representative workloads must be specified and bench-marked. Clock rates can be given; but if multi-core programming runs vs. single-core, rates can get shredded.

    Expensive processor... Here are the specs: 18 Cores, 36 Threads @2.60 GHz, Skylake. AS for speed there are bench mark site that can compare processors. Not knowing all the other components, we can tell what is good or bad speed wise. Do you have SSD or HD. Video card memory, make and model, Amount of RAM and ram speed all play a factor in determining speed. Check out this bench marking site .. More users preferred the Ryzen processor

    CPU speed depends on OS type also. You did not mention what OS is there? Either it is Windows/Mac/Linux? Whatever it is almost all OS has a built-in tool to measure speed. Assuming this is Windows based, you can check speed by pressing the Windows Key & Pause Key at the same time. It opens a screen, where you can check the System Section. In this section look for Processor: here you can see the CPU speed.

    You can also use third party tool for the same job. There are plenty of tools that can use free. For your information. you can download/install CPU Speed Professional (free to use) and check if that helps.

    I have not this CPUs. I want to know the maximum speed before the purchase, not after.

    Before purchase it depends on shopkeeper / dealer from where you will purchase the same. If they agree, they can show you the speed of the system before purchase. But in general, it is not like that. You can check total configurations of the system by linking the manufacturer's official website.

    I want to know the maximum speed...

    Maximum speed? Of what? Drawing lines? Macros in a spreadsheet? Database updates? Upload/download? Encryption/decryption?

    Graphics speed? Do you want integrated graphics speed or via dedicated graphics card?

    Do you want speed of a single thread? A single core? Multiple cores? Running what kind of workload under what OS?

    What motherboard? Far too many questions because there are many different "maximum speeds" that a CPU can achieve.

    If overclocking is important, do you need to consider costs of power and cooling? Is cost important at all? (If not, the Core i9 might be the better choice. The AMD might be better, though, in terms of future-proof.)

    Too many questions.

    @Genchev: it's 2.60 GHz. I have not see any article on overclocking this processor. With out knowing the rest of the configuration and what background apps will be running all any of us ca do is guess.

    Moreover, is it branded new system or assembled one? If it is assembled, you can choose according to your choice, but of course as per system's configurations or matching parts. Why are you not asking the vendor/dealer for more help. Obviously a good businessman helps to select right one, that will be suitable for you.
