Intel Core i7-11700K PassMark Score Surfaces: Trades Blows with Ryzen 7 5800X

Hot on the heels of its Geekbench score leak, we have PassMark numbers for the upcoming Core i7-11700K "Rocket Lake-S" desktop processor, leaked to the web. The PassMark online score database lists performance obtained from a single i7-11700K sample, where it's shown to be trading blows with the Ryzen 7 5800X (score averaged from over 600 samples). The Intel chip scores 3548 points single-thread rating, compared to 3509 (average) of the 5800X, while its multi-threaded score of 54255 points falls short of the 54458 points of the 5800X (average). Both these chips are 8-core/16-thread.

The Core i7-11700K has the same core configuration as the top i9-11900K part, but with lower rumored clock speeds. The Core i7 ticks at 3.60 GHz base, with up to 5.00 GHz boost, and the same 125 W TDP rating as its 10th Gen predecessor. The "Rocket Lake-S" desktop processor family sees Intel's first IPC uplift to the client-desktop platform in 5 years, on the backs of new "Cypress Cove" CPU cores. While we haven't seen evidence of core-counts above 8 for these processors, Intel's play will be to restore gaming performance leadership that it lost to AMD's Ryzen 5000 "Zen 3" processors. Plagued by scalping and limited availability to genuine customers, AMD stares at its performance leadership not translating into brand equity before Intel's next-gen parts flood the market.

PS5 and XB SX deals kinda screwed AMD over on the PC DIY market, basically no stock of CPU nor GPU.

And I am betting with Intel's superior supply chain availability will be better. Intel also provides more compelling options than the 5000 series hated middle child 800x.

The logical option with the lack of stock and ridiculous price gouging is to go Intel these days. You have the 9700K at 200-250USD, the 10850K sometimes at 400!

With 400watt power consumption.... no thanks.

I was going to create a thread over this but hoping to get some solid answers here.
I am not an amd or intel fan but its a fact i have been using intel and recommending intel to my clients for obvious reasons. I admit that amd has proven to be over intel yet this is a never ending fight for both.

If this benchmark is true when will these cpu's will be available for us ? and what about z590 chipsets and what is the major difference between z490 and z590 ?

there is a rumour of amd working on a new hybrid cpu socket to narrow the cpu to gpu vise versa gap. I dont know how it will benefit end user in daily driving tasks.

sooo we are suppose to be thrilled about this?

I mean if the price is lower then the 5800x sure, but I doubt it will be sooo who cares?
I guess being able to get one in the first place would be a win.

I can't see the 11700k being over 400€. Most likely it'll just replace the 10700k's pricepoint so it'll be significantly cheaper than the 5800x. Don't forget the 5800x is overpriced as hell. The 11700k will probably compete with the 5700x which AMD will have to release at some point.

I don’t understand why I keep seeing this

I doubt there is that much of a stock issue

on just Amazon Alone I’ve seen the 5800X and 5600X go listed almost every other day
B&H and Microcenter also being getting weekly drops

You just gotta pay attention. I
Remember seeing a post from AMD even stating they are sending out Zen 3 processors daily

Hmmm doesnt add up as the 5950X has a higher single core clock speed then the 5800x but has a lower score? That doesnt make much sense.

And if we go by these "numbers" the Intel is clocked around 200mhz higher then the 5800x to score around the same in performance? Not that I know if 40 points is classed as a big difference or within margin of error?

Yeah right I have been waiting 2 months for 5900X or 5950X, which have no stock and the shop said they have no idea when stock will come. I don't care about 5600X nor 5800X as those are sidegrade from 8700K @ 5.1Ghz at best.
Suck that I have everything ready for the new AM4 rig (full custom watercool) but not the CPU ~_~.

Or wait till AMD prices drop and delay upgrade until that point.

Compounded with far from ideal situation in GPU market, advice to wait is just solid in general anyways.

You didn’t specify 5900X or 5950X. You clearly just stated AMD had no cpu stock

just an FYI

I’ve seen the 5900X go up on B&H just recently.

Intel has a wonderful supply chain on it's chipsets.

Performance without care for power consumption in an era where climate change is accelerating is a disgrace. Just scrap this node and wait for Alder Lake at leaast.
