New benchmark results of the upcoming Rocket Lake-S CPUs have emerged today on Geekbench.
The Core i9-11900K the flagship of the 11th Gen Core series that have not yet been officially released by Intel, has been spotted by @leakbench on Geekbench for the first time with a clock boost frequency over 5.28 GHz. This 8-core and 16-thread processor will be Intel’s next top SKU in the upcoming series.
Despite offering fewer cores and threads, the CPU is able to match the current-gen Core i9-10900K CPU in a multi-threaded benchmark, while offering much higher single-threaded performance. The 11900K has been tested on the Gigabyte Z490 AORUS Master motherboard which apparently already supports the new processor.
Meanwhile, China-based company Colorful, which recently announced its new Z590 motherboard series, appears to be evaluating the performance of another 11th Gen Core CPU, the i7-11700K, according to another leak from the Geekbench database. Interestingly both CPUs are to offer similar core and thread configurations but the i7 series is to be offered with a lower frequency.
The 11900K has been tested with a clock speed of 5.28 GHz, which might be the actual Thermal Velocity Boost for this SKU. The software does not confirm how many cores have reached such a frequency though. The 11700K, on the other hand, has only reached 4.58 GHz maximum frequency:

The CPU has scored 1892 points in the single-core benchmark. Assuming that this is a stock configuration of the processor, then we have a new top score in the Geekbench V5 ranking. So far the highest score belonged to Ryzen 9 5950X, which reportedly scores 1682 points on average. Of course, the situation is completely different when multi-core performance is considered, then the Core i9 CPU is clearly at a disadvantage.

Interesting. If these i9's are capable of hitting 5.3GHz on all cores then I'll be very tempted to upgrade. The IPC gain alone (coming from an 8th gen) will be worth it for gaming in order to increase fps lows. I've been hitching pretty bad in certain titles.
