The first result of the Intel Core i9-11900K (Rocket Lake-S) processor has appeared on the network. This eight-core processor is based on the Cypress Cove microarchitecture, which is expected to deliver double-digit IPC gains over Skylake processors. The CPU-Z score in question confirms these expectations.
According to the leak, the Core i9-11900K scores 695.4 points in the single-threaded CPU-Z test, which is 19% more than the Core i9-10900K shows in the same test. The yet-to-be-released processor is 13% faster at 6522 points versus 5765 in a multi-threaded test despite fewer cores.
Comparing the Intel Core i9-11900K results with the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X, the fastest Vermeer series processor (Zen3), the Intel processor performs almost 3% faster than a single-threaded test. In multi-threaded testing, AMD’s flagship 16-core processor is 90% faster.
The 11th Gen Intel Core is expected to be announced at CES 2021, and these processors will be available for sale in March or April.
