The Core i9-11900K, THE gaming CPU in 2021?

The Core i9-11900K, THE gaming CPU in 2021?

We have already talked about the testing and leakage of the upcoming Rocket Lake-S processors. Of course, we are like you a little doubtful about this umpteenth 14nm declination at Intel. This processor will thus benefit from the latest optimisation, namely the 14nm +++ process. Obviously, consumption will not be the best aspect of this generation but Intel seems to really want to demonstrate that it keeps the leader chip, especially in the gaming field. Intel-Core i9-11900K

The i9-11900K in front of the Ryzen 5800X?

It seems that on some forums, a copy of the i9-11900K CPU may have been tipped. This copy comes from a pre-production series almost final. This means that the specifications of the latter should not evolve any more and that we are in the presence of the final version as far as frequencies and optimizations are concerned. Through several posts on the Chinese Chiphell forum, we discover that this CPU has reached a score of 710 points in CPU-Z, in Cinebench R20 it would have scored 660 points in mono-core, and still in mono-core, it would have made 1700 points in Cinebench R23. If we have to make a comparison with the current 1090K we would obtain gains of respectively 20.7% / 23.5% / 26.8% (588/534/1340 points) in the same tests. If we want to compare it to the current reference for gaming, aka the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X, we can see that the new Intel product is doing very well (at least in onocore). In these same tests the AMD CPU obtained 663 points in CPU-Z, 626 points in Cinebench R20 and 1596 points in Cinebench R23. In other words, the Intel Core i9-11900K offers superior performance in these benchmarks by 5.5% / 5.4% / 6.5% compared to the 5800X. Of course, more tests will be needed to refine our judgement but single core performance is very regularly a good indicator of the performance brought by a CPU in most games. A place where Intel, until recently, was still spared… Obviously, a (very) aggressive price and availability would do Intel’s business on the subject…But to find out more, we’ll have to wait.
