Intel's Rocket Lake-S platform is scheduled to arrive at the beginning of the following year, which is just a few days away. The Rocket Lake lineup of processors is going to be Intel's 11th generation of Core desktop CPUs and the platform is expected to make a debut with Intel's newest Cypress Cove core design. Thanks to the Geekbench 5 submission, we have the latest information about the performance of the upcoming Intel Core i7-11700K 8C/16T processor. Based on the Cypress Cove core, the CPU is allegedly bringing a double-digit IPC increase, according to Intel.

In the single-core result, the CPU has managed to score 1807 points, while the multi-core score is 10673 points. The CPU ran at the base clock of 3.6 GHz, while the boost frequency is fixed at 5.0 GHz. Compared to the previous, 10th generation, Intel Core i7-10700K which scores 1349 single-core score and 8973 points multi-core score, the Rocket Lake CPU has managed to put out 34% higher single-core and 19% higher multi-core score. When it comes to the comparison to AMD offerings, the highest-end Ryzen 9 5950X is about 7.5% slower in single-core result, and of course much faster in multi-core result thanks to double the number of cores.

With how easy it is to game geekbench with simple malloc tricks I have to take this with a heaping helping of salt. Competition is nice regardless.

NO mention of how many chillers are needed to attain this level of Ghz, or what walk in freezer the system was ran in to keep the temps down with I am going to guess over a 300W actual TDP. Intel, you so shit at rating CPUs TDP, 240W for a "95W" rated CPU.......

Wait what

Is this AVX512 or what

I don't think AVX512 helps too much in many Geekbench workloads (maybe the AES workload but a lot of other stuff is INT64 based). But I'll have to double-check to be sure...

Rocket Lake has bigger L1 cache... and also bigger L2 cache. It might also be a wider core, does anyone have the information on the backend of Cyprus Cove?

There goes AMD's brief lead in gaming. :roll:

But it was never a real lead since the Ryzen 5000 launch was a paper launch.

You must be one of these people who ask me about the gas mileage on my cars. :roll: Wild guess: I don't care. :nutkick:
I recently built 10850k, no OC just power limits removed, 320W+. I would have put just as beefy cooling on a Ryzen CPU if I wanted to get the best out of it. And that would be pulling well over 125W rated TDP.

P.s. The owner also didn't care about his electric bill. surprise! surprise!

Ah, yes, Geekbench. Best benchmark that there is.

The big jump is in indeed in the AES-XTS test which does benefit from AVX512 acceleration. The 10700K scores around 3.07GBps in the single-core test, this 11700K around 9.24GBps. There is very little difference in the multi-core AES-XTS test scores which means that the AVX512 reduces the multi-core clock quite significantly, to the point where it is hardly worth it.

That one sub-test on its own lifts the single-core score by 10 percentage points, so the final score is fairly misleading. Rocket Lake is an improvement, but not a 30% improvement.

I'm not really concerned with energy efficiency, more so with how Intel has lied about ratings, and the ability to overclock on a old node and how many cores can maintain that level of performance. We aren't a single threaded world anymore, and it's one benchmark.

If they can make a CPU 20% faster that's great, but if they have to run it with a chiller to do it.....

Oh, my, I'm so excited... Wait, no I'm not.

"The gaming crown" probably also goes with it, when lucky owners can play at 150-200+ FPS at... mighty FHD... Can it run Crysis? Old one?

I have no doubts that the next big thing from Intel since 2015 can be this good, I just find it amusing that this could have been launched years ago, maybe instead of the 9900K. :D
It never happened, because Intel thought 10 nm was worth waiting for.. :slap:

Also, I don't trust g**kbench either.

Not sure why y'all have your undies in a bunch.

Only one (questionable) benchmark score, but I'd take a 34% single thread and 19% multi thread improvement for the same price, or even lower if some rumors are correct.

Obviously if your workload needs more than 8c/16t, Ryzen's still your uncle.

yep I read about two more security issues with Intel just in the last few months, on top of the 50+ that have already been patched.

With both AMD and Intel having good 6-core and 8-core options, we should expect some good deals in the next months, if they manage to make enough of these.

There will probably be many Sandy Bridge and Haswell owners looking for a good upgrade.

I'm not really concerned with energy efficiency, more so with how Intel has lied about ratings, and the ability to overclock on a old node and how many cores can maintain that level of performance. We aren't a single threaded world anymore, and it's one benchmark.
While the rated clock speeds are a bit optimistic, their TDPs are accurate for sustained power consumption at stock.

Screw Intel, they price gouged for years until they were finally defeated and they’re filled with security flaws

Right, sorry misquoted you which is a shame since your comedy famnboi stomping, over an unreleased chips scores on a shit benchmark just got more attention.

@freeagent
It will be(a good year for CPU sales), but they Both could do much better if they had enough manufacturing capacity in the right places and at the right time, like now for example, hence I'm expecting these to be like unicorn tears on release and for they're life.

I wonder if they are going to have as much trouble binning them to hit the clocks like intel did with the 10900k and have to make another 10850.
