Some potential Rocket Lake leaks have surfaced with benchmarks featuring the Core i7 11700K pitted against today’s best processors in a variety of games and tests.
In PCMark10, the Core i7 11700K is marked as having reached 7927 and is sandwiched between the company’s Core i9 10900K (with 7904) and AMD’s Ryzen 5600X (with 8018). And in the Fire Strike Extreme tests, the 11th generation chip scores 16572 for the graphics test and 15844 for the general test. Either way, it beats the Ryzen 7 5800X by a hair’s breadth and falls just short of the Ryzen 5 5600X – although it fights well.
In terms of being able to handle physics, while chips like the Ryzen 9 5950X and even the Ryzen 7 5800X score over 30,000 points, the Core i7 appears to lag far behind, barely beating the score of the Ryzen 5 5600Xs. of 25,853 with a relatively meager 25,984.
Also, given the somewhat poor scores above, CPU power consumption is something to be seen – and not in a good way. At 286W, the Core i7 11700K consumes more power than the 10980XE and is second only to the monster Core i9 10900K of 354W in terms of gross power consumption.
These power consumption figures would indicate that the 11th gen chips are running pretty hot, but with maximum CPU temperature readings of 71C, it looks like the Noctua NH-D15 cooling from the test bench did its job. impressively.
The chip has also been tested for its relative gaming performance at 4K, 1440p, and 1080p. With the overall results rounded off by the following declaration:
“It’s clear that the Intel Core i7 11700K is the most powerful Intel processor in the game, but slightly behind the new AMD monsters in the Ryzen 5000 series.”
He continues “In GTA V, Shadow of War, Batman AK and Ashes of the Singularity, Intel Core i7 11700K achieves similar results with 10900K, or better, surpassed by AMD Ryzen 5000 series processors. In Metro Exodus, processors obtain similar results, Intel Core i7 11700K compatible with AMD processors. “
In fact, in several other games listed, the Intel Core i7 11700K processor “outperforms all processors”, completely exceeding the criteria for half of the game tests listed.
So there you go, the Core i7 11700K – or at least that engineering sample – looks like a real beast, even if AMD still takes the crown. And remember, while the source article can be extremely detailed, we still warn that while it is accurate now (which may not be the case), things certainly have the potential to change before they happen. on the market towards the end of March.
