Intel Core i7-11700K beats Ryzen 9 5950X by 8% in Geekbench 5 single-core benchmark

It appears that a retail version of the Core i7-11700K might have just made a debut on Geekbench.

Intel Core i7-11700K spotted, Z490 motherboard, 5.0 GHz clocks

The new 11th Gen Core processor has been spotted in the Geekbench database with clock speeds reaching 5.0 GHz. This processor is based on Intel’s new Cypress Cove core design, expected to bring a double-digit IPC gain over the last Skylake-based series. The leaked score of 1807 points in a single-core benchmark appears to confirm this. The processor also scored 10673 points in the multi-threaded benchmark.

The processor was tested in an existing 400-series motherboard from Gigabyte, the AORUZ 490 Master. This is because the new CPU series will also support the same LGA1200 socket as the Intel 10th Gen Core (Comet Lake-S) processor series. The motherboard may require a BIOS update though. Intel will also unveil its 500-series motherboards possibly at CES 2021 early next year.

The Core i7-11700K is an 8-core and 16-thread CPU, similarly to 10700K. The clock speeds actually appear to be lower (3.6 GHz/5.0 GHz) compared to Comet Lake (3.8 GHz/5.1 GHz), however, that did not prevent the CPU from being 34% and 19% faster in single and multi-core benchmark.
