Hardware enthusiast harukaze5719 has shared new benchmarks that give us an idea of how Intel’s flagship Core i9-11900K processor might compare against AMD’s Ryzen 7 5800X and Ryzen 7 5700G alternatives in the gaming department. The metrics, which stem from a recently published video by Chinese YouTuber 二斤自制, suggest that the trio (or, at least, the i9-11900K and 5800X) will perform quite similarly across a range of popular titles such as Cyberpunk 2077, Hitman 3, and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. League of Legends seems to be a major anomaly, however, as the Ryzen 7 5800X is shown blowing past Intel’s Rocket Lake-S flagship by around 30 percent (361 vs. 473 points). The Ryzen 7 5700G also lagged significantly behind both in Riot’s popular multiplayer online battle arena game.

What’s interesting is that Intel’s flagship Core i9-11900K processor is the clear winner in 二斤自制’s other tests. The Rocket Lake-S chip managed to hit a score of 7,035.5 in the CPU-Z benchmark, while AMD’s Ryzen 7 5800X and Ryzen 7 5700G only achieved scores of 6,366 and 6,374, respectively. Intel’s Core i9-11900K also did much better than the competition in the Cinebench R20 and R23 tests.

The Intel Core i9-11900K and AMD Ryzen 7 5700G processors are expected to launch sometime in the first half of 2021. Note that the results below were derived from engineering samples, which means that the final performance of these 8C/16T chips might turn out to be a bit better.
