Intel Core i7-11700K to Beat AMD in Geekbench 5?

The Intel Core i7-11700K is expected to come with 8 cores and 16 threads with a base frequency of 3.6 GHz and a boost of 4.8 GHz. Intel’s new chips will still be on a 14nm architecture. Officially the Rocket Lake will come out in Q1 2021, but we don’t know the exact dates yet. As spotted by Leakbench, Intel’s unreleased Core i7-11700K has been ripped through the Geekbench 5 benchmark tool, and the alleged performance gains over last-gen parts with a Single-core performance score of 1807 points and with a crypto score of 5423 points and a Multi-core, score of 10,673 points. For comparison, the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X tops the chart of Geekbench 5 Single-core charts with a score of 1713 points, which makes Intel’s Rocket Lake chip about 5.5% faster in single-threaded applications. But this does not mean that it will perform faster than AMD’s Zen 3 chips in real-world, single-threaded applications as we don’t have any record of that yet.
