Intel Corp’s (NASDAQ:INTC) Rocket Lake Core i9-11900K is running at 5.3 GHz in PassMark and Geekbench 5 according to a leaked benchmark. Interestingly the chip beats all AMD’s Zen 3 parts in single-threaded tests.
I9-11900K can produce speeds of 5.3 GHz
The Geekbench result shows that the 11900K can produce speeds of 5.3 GHz matching what was leaked during the CES 2021. Intel demonstrates the 11900K beating Ryzen 9 5900X by around 5% in pure single-threaded workloads which portends to change the CPU benchmark Hierarchy. The i9-11900K scored 3764 points in PassMark with Ryzen 7 5800X scoring 3511 points. On the Geekbench 5 results, the i9-11900k had a higher single-threaded performance compared to 5950x by 12%.
The core i9-11900K reported a single-core result of 1,892 and a multi-core result of 10,934 but just like other leaked benchmarks, this should be treated carefully. Nevertheless, these are serious figures especially the single-core in which 11900K outperforms the 10900K Comet Lake by 35% according to the benchmarks comparisons. It is important to note that these Intel chips are pegging in multi-core which is impressive as the 10900K is considered a 10-core product.
11900K to launch in March
Notably, with leaks, it is not advisable to read too much into a single benchmark more so a pre-release one because it could be possible that the 11900K’s performance could be better. Generally, in terms of the overall picture, there is a lot to consider regarding whether Intel will pitch the new Rocket lake CPUs in pricing. The CPUs are expected to launch in March and the latest speculation on that front seems positive. There is the likelihood that the 11900K will be cheaper relative to the Comet Lake flagship which will make competition strong against AMD.
Equally, VidoeCardz pointed on the Geekbench leak for the Core i&-11700 that according to the will be running with 8-cores. It achieved a single-core result of 1,551 and a multicore tally of 8,849. This is 8% and 18% slower respectively comported to the Ryzen 5800X.
