Intel 11th Gen Core i5-11600K and Core i9-11900K Review

Storage

With PCI Express 4.0 being very much the headline feature of the new Intel chipset and processor range, we had to test out the storage bandwidth against the X570 to see how successful the Intel implementation of this has been. We're using the ADATA Gammix S70 as it's the fastest drive we've tested and thus best able to stretch the capabilities of PCIe 4.0.

Well, 11600K looks fairly solid for gaming, if power efficiency isn't important. Looks to be as far as the architecture scales reasonably, more cores is pretty awkward thermals wise.


In fact 11600K is probably the go to CPU for gaming builds now, until AMD undercut it with a 5600 non-X. But I don't think they have the fabrication capacity.Quote

The i5 having stock is their only possible power move when AMD stock is quite hard to come by at the momentQuote

There seems to be plenty available in Finland currently, at MSRP. Which is a strange sight nowadays.
But seeing how Intel has their own fabs, not entirely unexpected.


Thanks for the reviews! That's a massive amount of benchmarks.Quote

Makes me feel good about my 5800X purchase a few days ago, Along with this review and a fair others today, Looks like both CPU manufacturers are about equal when it comes to gaming.Quote

Who would have thought Intel would have a Bulldozer moment Quote
