Intel Core i7 11700K & 11700KF 11th Gen Rocket Lake-S CPUs Geekbench Scores Spotted

Intel's Rocket Lake-S desktop CPUs are looking like they are speeding to get launched into the orbit of gamers and DIY PC builders soon and as with any launch, as we get closer to the D-day the leaks of benchmarks of the said CPUs are being spotted across various benchmarking databases and Geekbench is one of them if not the most notorious of all the benchmark suits to display the benchmark scores of various yet-to-be-released CPUs.

Today's benchmarks are of the Intel Core i7 11700K and Intel Core i7 11700KF CPUs from the Geekbench 5 database which were found and shared by @BenchLeaks. The Intel Core i7 11700K and 11700KF are both 8 core 16 thread CPUs with expected base clock of 3.6GHz and 5.0GHz single core boost clock and 4.6GHz multi-core boost with both processors being unlocked for overclocking as their "K" moniker suggests. The only difference between the two, as indicated in the difference of their name with the "F" moniker, is the lack of / disabled integrated GPU in the Core i7 11700KF so you will need to a discrete GPU / graphics to get display output, where as the Core i7 11700K has Integrated graphics in the new Intel Iris Xe Graphics.
For all the benchmark numbers / scores of the other CPUs like AMD Ryzen 7 5800X and Intel Core i7 10700KF please refer to Geekbench database here. Not that the numbers we have presented may not match with the numbers you see in the database, as new CPU scores might alter the averages to some extent. That said, the numbers we presented were up-to date and correct on the day of writing this article.

Intel Core i7 11700KF Geekbench Score:

The Intel Core i7 11700KF scored a single core of 1796 points which is 7.16% faster than the average single core score of 1676 points scored by its competitor the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X and 35% faster than its predecessor the Core i7 11700KF which on average scored 1331 points in single threaded test. The 10341 points scored by the 8 core 16 thread 11700KF in Geekbench brings it pretty close to the average score of 10466 points scored by the AMD Ryzen 5 5800X another 8 core 16 thread CPU from AMD - actually the 10341 points scored by the Intel Core i7 11700KF makes it only 1.2% slower in multi-threaded workloads when compared to the AMD Ryzen 5 5800X. This score also ensures that compared to its predecessor, the Intel Core i7 10700KF, the next gen 11700KF is 18.7% in multi-threaded work loads. These benchmarks were run on a Z590 ASUS Maximus Hero XIII motherboard equipped with a 16GB Dual Channel RAM kit running at 4266MHz.

Given that the above benchmarks were run a 4266MHz RAM kit which not every body can afford, shall we take a look at how the 11th gen Intel Core i7 11700KF performs when paired with a 3200MHz RAM kit? Then continue reading please.

When Geekbench benchmark tests were run on the Intel Core i7 11700KF CPU using a 16GB 3200MHz DDR4 Dual Channel kit, the processor hit a score of 1799 in Single Core and 10269 in multi-core tests. Yes, when memory of lower speed was used the CPU did manage to hit a higher max boost clock of 4990MHz and that ensured that the single core score increased even more to 1799MHz making it 7.34% faster than the average single core score of Ryzen 7 5800X. But on the other side the multi-core score was reduced to 10269 points making it 2.1% slower than the AMD Ryzen 5 5800X in the Geekbench benchmark.

Intel Core i7 11700K Geekbench Score:

The Intel Core i7 11700K, when compared to its GPU-disabled sibling, managed to score higher points with 1806 points in single-core test and 11748 in multi-core test. This could be a result of binning, this is mere speculation on my behalf, with the best binned CPUs being reserved for the "K" SKUs and the second best bin going to the "KF" SKUs - don't quote me on that.

This makes the 8 core 16 thread Core i7 11700K 7.8% faster in single-core and 12.2% faster in the multi-core test when compared to the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X which is also a 8 core 16 thread CPU and should compete in the same price category of the Intel Core i7 11700K until Intel decides to raise its prices even more - hope that does not happen.
But this is a huge win for Intel as we all know, Intel for the most part of the last 2-3 years and in most multi-threaded workloads was behind AMD in corresponding tiers.

Intel Core i7 11700K ran at a max boost frequency of 4888MHz and average boost frequency of 4886MHz. Given that the max boost frequency and the average boost frequency are pretty close to each other it points that the CPU was able to hold its boost behavior for a long time and thus the higher score. We do not know what memory kit was used either. But given that these tests were run using an ASUS Maximus XIII Hero, we can assume that all the 3 tests that we looked at are all from the same place and user. So I guess a 4266MHz memory kit was used in this, but by using 3200MHz kit performance drop should not be so significant enough that it will loose to the Ryzen 7 5800X hands down.

So are you excited for the Rocket Lake-S CPUs to launch and fly to the moon? Or you on AMD's side? Do let us know down in the comments section below.
