The incoming Intel Core i7-11700K Rocket Lake-S desktop CPU has fell flat in early efficiency benchmarks shared by Russian tech website Lab501.
The benchmarks are primarily based on engineering pattern that’s near the retail unit, in keeping with the report, and has been in contrast towards a number of present Intel Core and AMD Ryzen CPUs.
The preview reveals that the Intel Core i7-11700K will characteristic the identical 8-core configuration because the flagship Core i9-11900K, however will characteristic decreased clock speeds. The chip, which can be primarily based on a 14nm course of node, will characteristic a base clock of three.6GHz, and single and multi-core enhance clocks of 5GHz and 4.6GHz respectively.
Lab501 examined the Rocket Lake CPU in a system comprising a Z590 motherboard with 16GB of DDR4-3200MHz reminiscence and an Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti graphics card.
Nonetheless, regardless of Intel’s promise that its new Cypress Cove structure will make for double-digital IPC beneficial properties, the Intel Core i7-11700K fails to compete with its primary competitor, the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X.
Particulars, particulars, particulars
Within the Fireplace Strike Excessive physics take a look at, for instance, the Intel Core i7-11800K scored simply 25,984, whereas the Ryzen 7 5800X managed a rating of 30,670 in the identical take a look at. The CPU additionally falls in need of the Intel Core i9-10900K, which scored 29,743.
The Intel Core i7-11700K falls quick in the case of gaming efficiency too, with the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X beating the chip in most titles.
The report additionally exhibits that Intel’s Rocket Lake-S CPU consumes way more energy than its AMD rival. The Intel Core i7-17700K consumed 286W, which is 64W larger than the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X configured setup and 76W larger than the Core i7-10700K. That is possible as a result of CPU’s 14nm course of node, as AMD is utilising a way more superior 7nm course of.
Nonetheless, it’s value noting that the Intel processor runs cooler at round 71C, whereas the Ryzen 7 5800X operates at round 89C.
In fact, these efficiency outcomes are primarily based on an engineering pattern on non-final firmware, so it’s possible these outcomes are removed from ultimate.
