Core i7-11700K: MindFactory’s hamburger

Core i7-11700K: MindFactory’s hamburger

While we are still under embargo regarding the press and commercial launch of Intel’s 11th generation, German reseller Mind Factory has sold its entire stock of 120 Intel Corei7-11700K to its customers before the official launch at the end of March.

120 Core i7-11700K delivered by mistake…


It is obviously this error that may have allowed some benchmarks to flourish on this processor. According to reports, MindFactory ‘s inventory management staff would have been informed by sales representatives that these Rocket Lake processors were available for sale. A surprising explanation from a player regularly cited as a reference by the German market. Some of the happy buyers were able to enrich the Hardwareluxx forum with the data acquired from their tests. For example, many users who have this processor in hand report that they can reach 5 GHz on all cores.

What conclusions can be drawn from this leak?

First of all, Mindfactory will feel the wind of the ball because we can’t talk about a small leak since the “problem” would have lasted for 3 days. On the processor itself, the price (469 ) raises questions. According to buyers’ tests, the Core i7-11700K is about 4% slower than the Ryzen 7 5800X but about 13% faster than its predecessor, the 10700K, in single-thread benchmarks. In multi-threaded benchmarks, the Core i7-11700K is about 5% slower than the 5800X but about 16% faster than the 10700K. Many users of the 11700K report that they can reach 5 GHz on all cores. Finally, while the stability feedback on the Z590 platform is good, it is highly likely that a bios update will be available in the coming days with an impact on performance.
