Rarely, Intel would surpass AMD on its Core i7-11700K model. This one would be faster than AMD’s Ryzen 7 5800X, according to early benchmarks. The numbers apply to both single-core and multi-core versions.
The battle continues to rage between Intel and AMD, while the former may well have won a fight against the latter. Indeed, benchmarks of the Core i7-11700K, otherwise called Rocket Lake, having leaked on the web reveals that the latter would be more powerful than its direct rival, the RyzenY 7 5800X. While AMD remains better than the Core i7-1175G7, Intel is reportedly showing resistance on its other models.
Composed of 8 cores, the processor displays a frequency of 3.60 GHz can be boosted up to 5 GHz. The power of the PL1 is 125W, while that of PL2 is 225-250W. Tested on a Gigabyte Z490 AORUS Master with 32 GB of RAM, it registers 1810 points on Geekbench in single core and 11304 points in multicore. It is so 34% faster than its predecessor, the i7-10700K, 26% multicore.

Intel surpasses AMD with its i7-11700K
The benchmarks also claim that Rocket Lake is 9% faster than the Ryzen 7 5800X, but also 9% faster than the Ryzen 9 5950X, thanks in particular to the clock frequency of 5 GHz. Nevertheless, with its 14 nm, we cannot deny that the ratio of much less compared to 7nm of AMD. The 11th generation of Intel processors, which will be launched in early 2021, is therefore, in this sense, a little behind its direct competitors. In addition, it has been reported that the latter present heat concerns quite disturbing.
If the Core i7s are placed directly in front of the Ryzen 7, it will probably be the same for the Core i9 and the Ryzen 9. The latter, composed of 16 hearts against 8 for the Core i9, could well undermine the efforts of Intel. To compete with its historic rival, the firm could lower prices of its processors, which would make the fight between the two companies all the more interesting. See you next year for official information.
