Another day, another leak of the 11th Gen Intel Core Rocket Lake CPUs. The Intel Core i9-11900K has just been spotted in its engineering sample (ES) form in a video published by 潮玩客 on YouTube. The YouTube channel tested what should be the Rocket Lake flagship in Cinebench R20, CPU-Z and also some games.

As Cinebench R20 tests both single-threaded and multi-threaded performance, we can see that the Intel Core i9-11900K sees a regression from the Intel Core i9-10900KF in multi-threaded performance by about 10%, while having two less cores, so that’s actually really good. That can probably be attributed to the significant improvement in single-core performance, which has increased by close to 19%.

Intel Core i9-11900K Cinebench R20

Against the red camp’s Ryzen 9 5900X, we see a small 1% win in single-core performance, but a massive loss in the multi-threaded section, to the tune of 42%. That’s to be expected as the AMD Ryzen 9 5900X packs 12 cores and 24 threads, versus the Core i9-11900K’s 8 core 16 threads.

Intel Core i9-11900K CPU-Z

Over in CPU-Z we see a similar scenario, with the Intel Core i9-11900K leading in single-core. The Intel Core i9-11900K enjoy a much stronger advantage in single-core here, with it being close to 6% faster than the Ryzen 9 5900X, and a whopping 26% faster than the Intel Core i9-10900KF. In multi-core, it is 9% slower than its predecessor and lags behind the Ryzen 9 5900X by 43%.

Intel Core i9-11900K Benchmark Scores *leaked*

Cinebench R20 (single-core) Cinebench R20 (multi-core) CPU-Z (single-core) CPU-Z (multi-core)
Intel Core i9-10900KF 535 6328 562 7078
Intel Core i9-11900K 636 5725 708 6443
AMD Ryzen 9 5900X 629 8399 670 9710

The Intel Core i9-11900K engineering sample was tested on what should also be an engineering sample of an Intel Z590 motherboard, which somehow resulted in the CPU being unable to activate its PCIe 3.0 x16 capability. As such, the gaming performance in the video are quite irrelevant at the moment. You can check out the full video which is in Chinese below.

You can also check out the Intel Core i9-11700K’s performance in Geekbench 5 as well.
