The top-of-the-range CPU of the Intel Rocket Lake-S family, the 11th Generation of Intel processors for desktop computers, has been seen in the Ashes of the Singularity (AotS) game benchmark tool. We are talking about the Intel Core i9-11900K, made up of 8 cores and 16 threads under the Cypress Cove @14nm+++ architecture that will be able to reach a Boost frequency for a single core of 5.30 GHz while all of them in operation will reach 4.80 GHz.
In this benchmark, the Intel Core i9-11900K processor settled for showing us its reference frequencies of 3.50 GHz. This resulted in 63 FPS performance at Full HD (1080p) resolution with Crazy graphics settings accompanied by an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti under the DirectX 12 API.
Under the same API, version, resolution, GPU and graphics settings, an AMD Ryzen 9 5950X has a score of 57.1 FPS, which translates to Intel’s CPU being 10.3% faster.
This is not a surprise, moreover, it is expected that Intel CPUs are superior to AMD only in the gaming section, although all this with a high energy cost, as the 8 cores of the Core i9-11900K will have a consumption of 250W.
The 16 cores of the AMD CPU usually touch 180W in stress tests for all its cores, so it is expected that the Intel CPUs will be superior, but will be presenting higher energy consumption, temperatures and with serious multicore disadvantages, although obviously, with a very aggressive price, and availability in store.
Below we can see that it is placed at the top of the scores, although it is true that it is a little early to take anything for granted because there are not even single drivers available.
Intel is expected to launch the first Intel Core i9-11900K Rocket Lake processors around the second quarter of next year, so until then we can expect many more leaks in this regard.
