Intel's upcoming Rocket Lake flagship processor, the Core i9-11900K, has just made an appearance on the Ashes of The Singularity benchmark. It manages to net a score of 64 fps on 1080p and 62 fps on 1440p. In comparison, the AMD Ryzen 9 5950x manages to score 72 fps.

The Ashes of The Singularity in-game benchmark has, on several occasions, given us a glimpse into several pieces of yet-to-be-released hardware. For example, it essentially confirmed that the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti performs on par with the RTX 2080 Super. Now, the Intel Core i9-11900K has made its first appearance on the game's benchmark (via TUM_APISAK). Interestingly enough, a similarly-specced Intel chip showed up on Geekbench some time ago. It was clocked at 3.4GHz and could boost up to 5GHz.

The Intel Core i9-11900k appear to be clocked at 3.5GHz. It is paired with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 and 32GB of RAM. At 1080p, the chip manages to run the game at 64 fps. Turning that up to 1440p doesn't seem to affect the Core i9-11900k a lot, as it achieves a smooth 62 fps. Both tests appear to have been conducted at the 'crazy' preset, which cranks everything all the way up. The benchmark also tells us that Intel's flagship chipset will come with eight cores and sixteen threads, something that has been common knowledge for quite some time now.

These numbers pale in comparison to the recently-launched AMD Ryzen 9 5950x, which manages to breach the 70 fps mark at 1080p with relative ease. While the Intel Core i9-11900K's somewhat lacklustre showing can be attributed to it being an engineering sample, it is unlikely that the retail version of the silicon will have the chops to take on AMD's Zen3 line of CPUs. We should know more about what Intel has in store for us soon, as it plans on launching the Rocket Lake series of processors in Q1 2021.

I've been an avid PC gamer since the age of 8. My passion for gaming eventually pushed me towards general tech, and I've been a stereotypical 'nerd' ever since. I have a degree in mechanical engineering and have worked in the manufacturing industry. When I'm not writing news on Notebookcheck, you can find me playing or watching an intense match of DOTA 2
