New benchmark leaks of the Intel Core i9-11900, one of the top-of-the-range CPUs in the Rocket Lake-S family, keep coming from China.
Thus we came across another processor in the form of an engineering sample that ran at Base/Turbo Boost frequencies of 1.80/4.40 GHz and 3.80 GHz with all its cores running. As indicated, the final frequencies of the upcoming model of Intel Core i9-11900 Rocket Lake-S processor will be around 25% higher, so these benchmarks do not represent the real performance, but it helps to get an idea of what Intel is preparing.
The Intel Core i9-11900 Rocket Lake-S was tested on a motherboard with the Intel B560 chipset, recalling that in the next month of January these CPUs will be announced along with another new generation of motherboards that will repeat the LGA1200 socket.
Let’s go to what interests us, the Cinebench benchmarks. It was revealed that in Cinebench R15 this processor achieved 1912/217 points, which places it at the level of an Intel Core i9-9900K with the same number of cores (8 + 16 threads, with Skylake microarchitecture) but that works at a Base/Turbo Boost frequency of 3.60/5.00 GHz.
If we go to a more modern benchmark, we have the Cinebench R20, with a single-core score of 529 points and a multi-core score of 4672 points. This puts it very close to the Intel Core i7-10700 with the same core configuration but running at a Base/Turbo Boost frequency of 2.90/4.80 GHz.
Thanks to AIDA’s AVX512 and AVX2 tests, we know that this CPU will consume between 123W and 161W of power depending on the test performed, although the TDP of this CPU is fixed at 65W (PL1 – Base frequencies) and 224W (PL2) when we are talking about squeezing its maximum performance with the Turbo in between.
