Glowing CPU-Z benchmarks for Intel’s upcoming 11th Gen Core i9-11900K “Rocket Lake-S” processor continue to leak out. The latest was shared by a user on China’s Chiphell forums, which shows the chip hitting clocks as high as 5.2 GHz on all of its Cypress Cove cores for an impressive single-core score of 706—11 points higher than yesterday’s showing (695.4).

harukaze5719 has compiled all of the recent CPU-Z benchmarks into a single chart so we can see how Intel’s new Core i9-11900K and Core i7-11700 processors might compare to their predecessors and the competition, namely AMD’s own 8C/16T Ryzen 7 5800X. Assuming that these metrics are accurate, the Core i9-11900K is faster than the Zen 3 option in both single-core and multi-core performance.

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.
