Intel Core i9-11900K CPU-Z Benchmark Score Leaks

Intel is preparing to launch their latest generation Rocket Lake-S processors in the coming weeks. We recently saw some leaked Geekbench 5 scores for the eight-core Intel Core i7-11700K showing it beating the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X in single-core performance. We have recently received some new benchmarks for the i9-11900K and i7-11700K this time in CPU-Z showing them once again best AMD in single-core performance.

The Cypress Cove core design found in these upcoming processors is expected to bring double-digit IPC gains over Skylake and this is reflected in these scores. Take all these benchmarks with a healthy dose of skepticism as we have no way of confirming these numbers until we can test the chips ourselves. The Intel Core i9-11900K gets a single thread score of 695.4 and a multi-thread score of 6522.1 which puts it 19% ahead of the i9-10900K and 3% ahead of the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X in single-threaded performance. The processor still falls far behind the Ryzen 9 5950X in multi-threaded performance due to it having half the number of cores.
The Intel Core i7-11700K CPU-Z benchmark results were also leaked however the photo has been edited to hide the exact score. The i7-11700K scores 67X in single-threaded performance, and 63XX in multi-threaded performance. This puts it 18% ahead of the i7-10700K and close to or slightly below the Ryzen 9 5950X in single-core performance.

AMD blew it with 5600X pricing is past tense, and you're comparing it to a future tense hypothetical processor that doesn't yet have a launch date, final specs, or price?

How did you work that one out? As far as I see it, the 5600X is priced against intel 10th Gen and it's sweeping the floor with them.

If you somehow believe that there won't be an AMD answer to Intel's 11400F when it hits the market, then you need to take off your Intel-branded spectacles. AMD and Intel price things as high as they can get away with because they're in the business of making profit first and foremost. If the 11400F is a great gaming CPU for budget gamers, then that's great news but don't expect it to sit far outside the price/performance curve that both AMD and Intel use to extract the maximum profit from each model. Chances are high that AMD will release a vanilla R5 5600 at that point, probably close to the $200 price point, but subject to change based on Intel's pricing of the 11th-gen i5 models.
10400F sells for €138 and 3600 is going for €200, 5600X for €338 here in Germany atm. They both fall in much higher price class atm, but gaming performance is not all that much different, 10400F being faster than 3600 (+6%) and a bit slower than 5600X (-1.5%) at 1080p. Current price premium is just not worth it if you're building PC primarily for gaming especially when 11th gen MBs come out supporting 3200Mhz DDR4, where you will have an option to pair 10400/11400 with budget B or H class motherboard.

And it's not like we don't know what specs and price 11400 will have. Leaked benchmarks are all over the internet. It'll be 6-core/12-thread processor, 2.6GHz base clock and 4.2 (all cores) 4.4GHz (single core) boost clock and 17% singe core IPC gain over 10th gen for €160-180. That sounds much better than €338 option to me.

It's about time brand fanboism dies and people start buying best price to performance ratio or DIY PC gaming will be doomed as normal folks migrate to consoles and only gamers with more money than sense continue with DIY PC hobby. Paying 400 bucks for 6 core CPU in 2021 is pure insanity. That's the price of entire now gen console with 8 cores and 10/12Tflops CPU/GPU in it plus tons of GDDR and large SSD.

Those aren't verifiable, at least not from any reputable site.

Also none of them show performance at fixed clocks ~ which is a basic necessity for IPC numbers.

How about techpowerup? But yeah that's why they're called leaks not reviews.
11900K vs 10900K +19% single core
11700K vs 10700K +18 % single core
Why would 11400 be any different when it comes to IPC gain?

You can find a benchmark of 11900ES clocked at locked 4.4Ghz on the net beating 10900K and you can extrapolate IPC gain from that.

In case you didn't know cache size also affects IPC gains.

From just one benchmark? Nah not doing that.

Not by much when it comes to gaming... 10400F 12 MB cache, 10900K 20 MB, performance difference only 9% at 720p regardless of 10900K running at 19% higher frequency. We have to put things into perspective here. 6 cores in 2021 is a gaming not a workstation CPU. Sure larger cache will help speed up many apps, but 99,9% of ppl buying 12T sub $200 CPU is not interested in workstation loads, but they are interested in what will give them most fps for their hard earned bucks.

Faster in useless benchmarks means it will be MUCH faster in gaming. F to AMD and those who recently bought the extremely overpriced 5800x.

Also, this uses the Icelake architecture from 2017 and the 14nm process node from 2015. AMD’s latest and greatest has, once again, lose to Intel’s older designs. Had they use Tigerlake and 10nm in 2020...

This CPU will need to come in at 5800x's price to be competitive as long as there's stock of 5800x's to be had by the time the 11900k releases.
I hope it will be like that but knowing intel, it won't.
But then AMD just have to cut their prices... and I believe they have the margins to do it.

This explains the Ryzen 5000 paper launch. AMD knew 11th gen Core processors would take back the gaming crown.

No it doesn't? I mean, this is easily disprovable by simply taking a look at AMD's latest CPUs - They're faster than Intel's in both ST and MT benchmarks but you're not seeing this "MUCH faster in gaming" performance increase. Other than blatant and unnecessary fanboyism, how did even you come to that conclusion? I'll wait for a source backing up that claim, but somehow I doubt I'll see one because It's bullshit.


Happy New Year.

LoL AMD is wet for you. But has possibilities in near future overprices to be turned to it's normal size.

Never going to happen. The fact that Intel are pushing this as the replacement SKU for their 10-core part proves how truly delusional they really are. Their bean-counter CEOs last interview that I saw talked about growing margins on these dinosaur trash-tier products -- that's just how dumb he is. At least when AMD struggled against Intel, they were competing on price super-aggressively and not penny-pinching the few potential customers they had left -- at this point, Intel might as well not bother releasing this trash. Give it to the OEMs to flog this dead horse of a product, because nobody with a brain in the enthusiast market is going to buy it -- not even compared to their current offering, which is going to fall even further in price.

I suspect these will OC quite nicely, 5.6ghz one core and upwards, with rest being 5.5/5.4/5.3.

That's one thing I like about intel chips, you can do per core OC, to have best of both worlds Single and Multi OC.
That's like saying your favorite thing about Bulldozer was that you could oc past 5 Ghz.

Geekbench never reports proper boost speed so this whole article means nothing.

So many many salty AMD fanboys in the comment section, lol. This is just the beginning of 2021 guys. Be ready for the many Intel releases coming this year including their gaming GPUs. From now and onward, AMD will no longer be relevant. Ice Lake-SP is coming early this year, the little Rocket Lake Core i5-11600K will humiliate the entire Zen 3 lineup in gaming and single threaded tasks and the 8 core Tiger Lake-H will beat the crap out of Cezanne-H.
AMD has poor stock availability and will have ZERO answer to Rocket Lake-S, Tiger Lake-H and Alder Lake-S in 2021. Zen 3+ on 6nm won't come before 2022 videocardz.com/newz/amd-mobile-apus-for-2021-2022-detailed-first-navi2-igpu-coming-with-vangogh and Zen 4 will be a Q2/Q3 2022 product thanks to Apple wccftech.com/apple-secured-80-tsmc-5nm-production-capacity-2021/ wccftech.com/apple-secures-3nm-tsmc-chip-production/

How some people think that AMD is going bankrupt at every single Intel launch, or vice versa is... puzzling. :wtf:

These companies do NOT depend on making 1% better products than the other one. There's so much more to market competition than that!

This almost reads like a satirical comment. Imagine shilling so hard for any single corporation, none of which give a single F about you... how do you personally benefit from doing that? Most of us are just enjoying the increased competition but you're out here propping up Intel like your life depends on it lol. I never realized how bad the fanboyism I kept hearing about was until I came into this forum. Yikes.

And when was the last time that AMD was relevant to you? Their marketshare has doubled YoY while Intel's has decreased by 20%... Lastly, Zen 4's release date on AMD's own CPU roadmap was slated for late 2022 LONG before we saw announcements of Apple securing 80% of TSMC's 5nm production capacity. Intel doesn't need to worry about that since they're still stuck with their 14nm++++++++++++++:laugh:.

No, this is not a joke but a true reality that will strike in your face in 2021. NVidia RTX 3000 mobile chips are still shipping with Intel 10th gen CPUs. NVidia will need AMD more than ever for their CPU supply as Intel will keep most of their own 8 core Tiger Lake-H chips for their own Xe-HPG gaming GPUs on the laptop market.

Okay & why is that a bad thing? Zen3 based APUs are looking stellar & probably will dominate TGL-H in some/most cases including gaming!

Not a bad thing at all. Just a warning to those who think the PC gaming landscape in 2021 will still be the same as it was 2020 and prior. The 8 core Tiger Lake-H CPUs paired with Intel own Xe-HPG GPUs will outperform any Zen 3 APUs. AMD has a huge stock availability issue that they need to fix first. Whatever product AMD announces during CES 2021 I won't believe it until I see it on shelves.

Okay, so Intel will storm the market with their far superior 11th gen Core CPUs and top of the line gaming GPUs that will wipe AMD and nvidia off the face of the Earth. The End.

My questions are:
1. What makes you believe that the gaming (laptop) market is the only place where Intel, AMD and nvidia sell their products?
2. If the scenario above really happens, how will YOU personally benefit from it?
