Two Rocket Lake-S CPU cross 1.7K points in Geekbench V5 benchmark 

Intel Rocket Lake-S ‘T-Series’ are power limited to 35W. Those CPUs can often be seen in embedded systems or Mini-PCs, they are not targeted at gaming rigs. While the T-Series is not a very popular choice among gamers, it is interesting to see how fast the 35W Rocket Lake-S chip can already be.

According to the Geekbench result page, the CPU has a base clock of 1.5 GHz but can boost up to 4.9 GHz. That’s a nearly 400 MHz lower boost than the upcoming flagship i9-11900K model from the same series, except with 3.5x higher TDP. We also have the first score of i7-11700 non-K CPU, which has a default TDP of 65W. Both CPUs offer 8-core and 16-thread configuration, but their base clocks differ by nearly 1 GHz due to changes to the power limits for each series.

The processors were both tested on the same platform featuring ASUS ROG Maximus XIII Hero motherboard, which is based on an Intel Z590 chipset.

The i9-11900T CPU scored 1717 points in a single-core benchmark, which is already higher than any Ryzen 5000 series CPU in the official ranking. However, due to a limited number of cores, this 16-thread SKU is no match for Zen3 with 24 or 32-threads in a multi-core application.

Meanwhile, the i7-11700 non-K offers nearly the same single-core result, while being 13% faster in the multi-core test. Interestingly the i7-11700K is also 13% faster in multi-core over the non-K variant, while being 5% faster in single-core. All four Rocket Lake-S 8-core CPUs listed in the chart below are faster than AMD Zen3-based CPUs in the single-core benchmark. However, only the K variants are reaching or surpassing the multi-core performance of the 8-core Ryzen 7 5800X CPU.

Intel is expected to introduce its 14nm Cypress Cove-based series next month. Both the Core i9 and Core i7 series will feature 8-core and 16-thread configurations, while Core i5 series will rely on 6-core and 12-thread configuration.
