Intel had teased that its 11th Gen Core “Rocket Lake-S” processors would boast a significant IPC uplift thanks to improvements in the Cypress Cove architecture. A new CPU-Z screenshot shared on BiliBili (via HXL) suggests that the company wasn’t exaggerating, as the Core i9-11900K can evidently perform well enough to score 695.4 in the popular benchmark’s single-thread test.

That score happens to be quite a bit faster than what its predecessor can muster. Intel’s Core i9-10900K is currently listed with a single-thread score of 584, which is around 19 percent slower than its Rocket Lake-S sibling. The Core i9-11900K also appears to eek out a narrow victory against the competition in terms of single-core performance based on comparisons published by Guru3D that list AMD’s Ryzen 9 5950X with a score of 677.

Intel’s Core i9-11900K is an 8-core, 16-thread processor with a rumored base clock of 3.5 GHz, single-core boost clock of 5.3 GHz, and all-core boost clock of 4.8 GHz. The 125-watt CPU also features 16 MB of L3 Cache and an Xe-based iGPU with 32 Execution Units (256 Cores). Intel is expected to announce its Rocket Lake-S lineup during January’s all-virtual CES 2021 event, with a potential release sometime in the spring.
