Intel’s upcoming Rocket Lake-S desktop CPUs will launch in 2021, and the leaks of these CPUs are all over the internet now. Now, for the first time, the performance of the Rocket Lake-S desktop CPU has been leaked by @TUM_APISAK and we have the Geekbench 5 score.
Here are the two Geekbench scores leaked recently:
As we see, the scores are very impressive as the single-core score rising to 1810 points while the multi-core score reaches to 11304 points. As for now, the leaked specs say that the upcoming 8-core Core i7-11700K will have 3.40 GHz base clock speed and a healthy single-core boost of 4.80 GHz, which is lower than its predecessors & 4.30 GHz (all-core) boost.
However, in the second benchmark, we see the base frequency of 3.60 GHz and 4.99 GHz boost clock speeds. When the score is compared to the previous Core i7-10700K, the Core i7-11700K is 34% faster in single-threaded and 26% faster in multi-thread tests.
When compared with the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X, the CPU is 9% faster in single-threaded and about 9% faster in multi-threaded tests, which means the IPC improvement Intel promised is real. Although it matches AMD in performance, its upcoming CPUs’ price-to-performance ratio will decide Intel’s future in 2021.
