Intel i7 11700K Performance Leaks - Zen 3 Beating Single-Threaded Performance

Intel i7 11700K Performance Leaks - Zen 3 Beating Single-Threaded Performance 

Thanks to Leakbench, we are able to see our first Geekbench 5 results for Intel's Rocket Lake i7-11700K processor, an 8-core 16-thread processor with Cypress Cove cores on a Gigabyte Aorus Z490 Master motherboard.

Intel's Rocket Lake processors are due to launch in Q1 2021, boasting PCIe 4.0 support and increased single-threaded performance. In Geekbench 5, this early i7-11700K sample delivers a single-threaded score of 1807 points and a multi-threaded score of 10673. For context, Intel's Comet Lake i9-10900K, which features 10 cores and 20 threads, delivers a single-threaded score of 1405 and a multi-threaded score of 10967. 

If this score is legitimate, Intel's Rocket Lake processors are going to be single-threaded performance monsters, though their lower core counts will place them behind AMD's Ryzen 9 series products in multi-threaded workloads. 

When compared to AMD's Ryzen 9 5950X, which offers users 16 cores and 32 threads, Intel's i7-10700K offers more single-threaded performance and less multi-threaded performance. In Geekbench 5, AMD's Ryzen 9 5950X offers single-threaded scores of 1672 and multi-threaded scores of 16515. 

With Rocket Lake, Intel will regain performance leadership in many single-threaded workloads. That said, Intel's lower core count and rumoured power consumption figures will place them behind AMD in many product categories.

On the surface looks to be a gaming winner, but I wonder what the power requirements and yields are for the units. Might well be pretty difficult to keep cool with an all-core OC.Quote

Will be interesting to see how this and Zen 4 compete considering Zen 4 is meant to be another pretty big leap over Zen 3.Quote

Also seen rumours of a Zen 3+ refresh with higher clock speeds. I can imagine AMD will not want to rush in with Zen 4 when Zen 3 is still struggling to find footing due to supply issues. Intel won't be competitive for another few months and even then won't be competitive in multithreaded work loads. And releasing Zen 4 too soon could mean AMD's progress will start to appear to slow down, even though it's moving fast. In other words, I can imagine AMD will want to slow down their pace when they're already so far ahead. I can see them getting as many sales as possible with current and previous gen CPUs before moving to Zen 4.Quote
