The upcoming Rocket Lake-S Intel Core i7-11700K has been proving its undeniable value on PassMark, with a first sample managing to snatch the lead in the CPU Mark single-thread performance chart. The i7-11700K zipped past its fellow 8-core rival AMD Ryzen 7 5800X and produced a score that was almost 15% more than the Comet Lake i7-10700K.

A lot of recent CPU-related headlines have been about the Rocket Lake flagship part Intel Core i9-11900K; however, a recent performance by the i7-11700K has demonstrated that this CPU should not be necessarily overlooked, especially when it is likely to be considerably cheaper than its i9 counterpart. The Intel Core i7-11700K was spotted visiting the PassMark benchmark, and it performed very admirably, although it needs to be pointed out from the start that its results and current position in the CPU Mark charts are based on a single sample compared to hundreds tested for the other processors mentioned here.

The current PassMark CPU Mark single-thread performance chart is now headed by the Intel Core i7-11700K, which amassed a very healthy score of 3,548 points (remembering that being an only sample leaves a high margin for error, though). This means the 8-core, 16-thread part managed to overtake the Ryzen 7 5800X on 3,509 points and the 16-core Ryzen 9 5950X on 3,500 points. Compared to the previous-generation Comet Lake i7-10700K, the Rocket Lake CPU’s score was +14.93% (3,548 points vs. 3,087 points).

It’s a promising first outing on this benchmark for the i7-11700K, and even its cross-platform mark of 54,255 places it on almost equal footing with the Ryzen 7 5800X (54,458). But it’s a single sample so the score is far from representative, and of course being an Intel part means there is a power usage disparity, with the Rocket Lake CPU having a PL1 TDP of 125 W vs. 105 W TDP for the Zen 3 chip from AMD. According to the individual listing, the i7-11700K had clocks of 3.6 GHz to 5.0 GHz and was awarded an average CPU Mark of 27,108, with the contender Ryzen 7 5800X on 28,709.
