Intel's is expected to launch its 11th-generation desktop processors next month, with the likes of the Core i7-11700K and Core i9-11900K set to succeed the Core i7-10700K and Core i9-10900K. A comparison video showcasing the Core i9-11900K has already been published on Bilibili, though.
The video, during which the Core i9-11900K was benchmarked in a Z590 motherboard, compares the eight-core processor against equivalent models from AMD, the Ryzen 7 5800X and the Ryzen 7 5700G. It is worth stressing that the Core i9-11900K and Ryzen 7 5700G were pre-production models, so their results do not necessarily reflect what retail versions will achieve. However, the Core i9-11900K is a QS part, so it should offer near-retail clock speeds and performance.
In short, the Core i9-11900K outperforms AMD's Zen 3 eight-core processors in synthetic benchmarks like CPU-Z and Cinebench. This is true in multi-core workloads too, as the table below shows.
|Benchmark||Intel Core i9-11900K||AMD Ryzen 7 5800X||AMD Ryzen 7 5700G|
|Cinebench R15 single-core||256||257||230|
|Cinebench R15 multi-core||2,526||2,354||2,242|
|Cinebench R20 single-core||620||609||551|
|Cinebench R20 multi-core||6,140||5,676||5,404|
|Cinebench R23 single-core||1,661||1,569||1,418|
|Cinebench R23 multi-core||16,001||14,634||13,797|
Conversely, the Ryzen 7 5800X and Ryzen 7 5700G have the edge over the Core i9-11900K in most gaming benchmarks. The Rocket Lake chip claws its way back in PUBG and Total War: Three Kingdoms, but only by a narrow margin.
Overall, it does not look like the Intel Rocket Lake architecture is really offering more than AMD Zen 3 in games. Most triple-A titles do not benefit from the higher core counts of the Ryzen 9 5900X and Ryzen 9 5950X yet though, so Intel does not have anything to worry about, in that regard.
