It’s the second time we’ve seen the Core i7-11700K (Rocket Lake) in the Geekbench database and this time we can see it in action under a Z490 motherboard. The discovered and leaked benchmark shows significant performance gains over the current generation Comet Lake).
The Core i7-11700K has the same core configuration as the Core i9-11900K, that is, about 8 cores and 16 threads. The difference would be in the boost clock speeds of 5.0 GHz (one core) and 4.6 GHz (all cores). The CPU will also carry the same amount of cache. The power values are 225-250W (PL2) while the PL1 limit will be the standard 125W.
The Core i7-11700K was tested on Geekbench 4, the previous results seen from this processor were performed on Geekbench 5, so they cannot be bought from each other.
In Geekbench 4 tests, the 11th gen i7 scores 7857 on single-core and 42011 on multi-core. The Intel Core i7-10700K achieves 6200 and 35000 points, respectively, in these tests. In this way, the i7-11700K would be 25% faster than the current i7-10700K with a single core and 20% in multitasking.
The performance gains that we can see are very interesting if they are really confirmed with more tests and a more exhaustive analysis.
The new Rocket Lake-S processors would be announced in the coming weeks to compete with the current Ryzen 5000 from AMD. We will keep you informed.
