Intel Core i7-11700 wallops the i7-10700K by +21% in single-core test and even outpoints the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X - but it was via UserBenchmark

The Intel Core i7-11700 has been spotted producing an enormous single-core score on a synthetic benchmark site. The Rocket Lake-S chip outpaced the i7-10700K by quite a margin and even scored higher than the maximum result for the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X. However, this strong i7-11700 mark was recorded on the contentious UserBenchmark site.

It’s widely known how controversial results from UserBenchmark can be, especially when it comes down to an AMD vs. Intel comparison. Those controversies have already been documented, so of course, have a pinch of salt to hand when it comes down to reading this incredible 1-core result an Intel Core i7-11700 sample managed on the site: 178 points. The current 1-core chart leaders, the i7-1185G7 and Ryzen 7 5800X, both have average scores of 160 points. For further perspective, the maximum recorded by the Zen 3 part from AMD was 167 points. This makes the i7-11700’s achievement look all the more remarkable now.

As always, a single result on a synthetic benchmark has to be considered as a theoretical maximum score. The Intel Core i7-11700’s result of 178 points is +21.09% above the Comet Lake i7-10700K’s average score of 147 points. The previous-generation chip has the “K” modifier meaning it’s unlocked and in theory can offer higher performance than the non-K chip. The Intel Core i7-10700K has intimidating clocks of 3.8 GHz to 5.1 GHz and operates on 125 W (PL1) and 229 W (PL2) TDPs. The Intel Core i7-11700 manages much better 1-core results on UserBenchmark with rates of 2.5 GHz to 4.5 GHz, and it has been reported that it has 65 W (PL1) and 224 W (PL2) power limits.

The comparison that’s more likely to ruffle a few red-colored feathers is the one between the Rocket Lake chip and the Zen 3 part. The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X is a terrific processor that has proved Team Red can produce chips that excel in both single-core and multi-core workloads. But the i7-11700 beats the Ryzen 5000 part by +11.25% (average score) and +6.59% (maximum score) in its solitary UserBenchmark run inside a Dell OptiPlex 5090 desktop PC. It will be interesting to see what kind of record-breaking 1-core scores the Intel Core i7-11700K and i9-11900K drum up when they start appearing on the same tendentious website.

My interest in technology began after I was presented with an Atari 800XL home computer in the mid-1980s. I especially enjoy writing about technological advances, compelling rumors, and intriguing tech-related leaks. I have a degree in International Relations and Strategic Studies and count my family, reading, writing, and travel as the main passions of my life. I have been with Notebookcheck since 2012.
