Intel Rocket Lake processors are due to hit the market this quarter, so there are more and more leaks involving them. Today, the flagship Core i9-11900K and Core i7-11700K have appeared on the web. Recall that in the new generation of Intel CPUs there will be no 10-core models, so Core i9 and Core i7 will probably differ only in frequencies.

So, the flagship scored 1892 and 10,934 points in Geekbench in single-threaded and multi-threaded modes, respectively, and the Core i7-11700K – 1551 and 8849 points, that is, the difference is very noticeable. But it is easily explained: the first CPU runs at up to 5.3 GHz, and the second only up to 4.4 GHz. Because of this, the second, for example, noticeably loses to the Ryzen 7 5800X with the same number of cores, but the Core i9-11900K still turns out to be faster than the competitor, although the difference is small in multi-threaded mode.

As you can see from the table, at its very high frequencies, the new Intel flagship shows a very decent single-threaded performance, but if you lower the frequencies, everything is not so interesting. For example, the six-core Ryzen 5 5600X is faster than the eight-core Core i7-11700K in single-threaded mode and is less than 10% behind in multi-threaded mode.
