Intel 11th Gen Rocket Lake-S CPU's Packing Box & Core i5 11600K, Core i9 11900KF GB5 Scores Leak - PC SEEKERS

Intel 11th Gen Rocket Lake-S CPU's Packing Box & Core i5 11600K, Core i9 11900KF GB5 Scores Leak

As we reported in an earlier post, the 11th gen Rocket Lake-S CPUs based on the Cypress Cove architecture are right around the corner, allegedly arriving on March 15th. As we inch closer and closer to the launch we are having heaps of leaks about the next gen Intel CPUs, their performance and even their new packaging. Intel is keen on taking back the gaming crown from AMD that they lost after AMD released their Ryzen 5000 series CPUs based on the Zen 3 architecture.

Geekbench Database Charts For Comparison:

Geekbench Single Core Score Database (Source)

In Geekbench in single threaded benchmark, the AMD Ryzen 9 5900X averaged 1669 points, where as the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X 1675 points, AMD Ryzen 9 5950X remains the chart leader with 1693 points and the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X scored 1615 points. From Intel's side the current gen flagship Core i9 10900K scored 1377 points where as the Core i5 10600K Scored 1312 points.

Geekbench Multi-Core Score Database (Source)

Coming to the multi-core results the Ryzen 9 5950X and 5900X average a whopping 16,948 points and 14,170 points respectively while the Ryzen 7 5800X and Ryzen 5 5600X scored 10,457 points and 8,157 points respectively. From Intel the Core i9 10900KF scored 10807 points, the Core i7 10700K scored 8,954 points and the Core i5 10600K managed an average score of 7,002 points.

Intel Core i9 11900KF Geekbench 5 Score:

In the Geekbench 5 benchmark, the 11th gen flagship Core i9 11900KF scored 1681 for single core and 6974 for multi-core scores. The single core score of 1681 is close to the Ryzen 7 5800X's 1675 points while it just falls short of the Ryzen 9 5950X's 1693 points by about 0.7% which is obviously not a huge difference in performance that can be observed in the real world. Also note that the BIOS version this CPU was tested on may not be the final one and a newer BIOS has the possibility of bringing more single core performance to the table. Also this is 1 sample of 11900KF against an average of many hundreds of 5800Xs and 5950Xs. Obviously a better bin of the new Core i9 11900KF will boost much higher.
In the multi-core test the Core i9 11900KF, which is a 8 core 16 thread CPU, scored a measly 6974 points which is even less than what the current gen Intel Core i5 10600K which is a 6 core 12 thread processor scoring 7002 points. Now this lack of multi-threaded performance improvement can be related to the not-so-final BIOS version the CPU was tested on. Hopefully this score will improve with the release BIOS that will be available for the consumers - especially after Intel claimed that the IPC improvements are in the double digits with the 11th generation of CPUs. Also the final BIOS version, as we stated earlier, can improve the single threaded performance making it the potential gaming king after its release.
Also the RAM used in this test is only running at 2133MHz dual channel, using higher frequency RAM can increase the scores.

Intel Core i5 11600K Geekbench 5 Score:

In the single core benchmark test the Core i5 11600K scored 1,565 points which is still 3.1% less than the 1,615 score of the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X. But the 11th gen Core i5 11600K beats the Core i5 10600K handily by about 19% in the single core performance. There a possibility that with the release / final BIOS the Core i5 10600K can edge past the Ryzen 5 5600X - time will tell.

The 6,220 points scored by the Core i5 11600K is in line with the low score of the Core i9 11900KF, this most probably is due to a unpolished BIOS version unless Intel is okay with releasing stop-gap CPUs that can gain the single-core performance crown while loosing pretty hard even to its own previous gen counterparts in the multi-core tests - I highly doubt that.
Also worth noting is the RAM frequency running at 2133MHz dual channel. Using higher frequency RAM can improve the scores.

Intel New Packing For 11th Gen Rocket Lake-S CPUs:

Intel in past few months have undergone many changes form updating their logos, to launching new brands like EVO for its laptop CPUs, IRIS Xe for its graphics to appointing a new CEO in Pat Gelsinger. And in the midst of it all Intel also changed their desktop CPU packing boxes and they are now leaked by VideoCardz. Below are the new packaging boxes for the corresponding 11th gen Rocket Lake-S CPUs.
