Intel is all set to launch the brand new Rocket Lake-S desktop processors within the upcoming months, and plenty of them have already been leaked on varied benchmarks. Yesterday, we additionally noticed the eleventh Gen Core i9 sequence and now it’s time for the price range Core i5-11600K to step up.

Intel Core i5-11600K Specs

The upcoming 6 core, 12 thread processor has been noticed on Geekbench with a 3.9GHz base and 4.9GHz increase frequencies. It makes a rating of 1565 factors in single-core and 6220 factors in multi-core assessments, examined on a Gigabyte Z490M motherboard with 16GB RAM clocked at 1066 MHz.

The direct competitor to the Core i5-11600K is the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X launched a number of months again, and as per our overview, we all know how good the processor is. Nevertheless, the rating of the Intel CPU just isn’t up to speed as the common scores of the Ryzen 5 5600X on Geekbench.

Distinction Between Each Processors

The Geekbench itemizing additionally reveals that the Intel Core I5-11600K fails to match its AMD equal in relation to efficiency. The Rocket Lake-S CPU racked up single-core and multi-core scores of 1565 and 6220 in respectively, whereas the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X managed to attain greater than 1,600 and seven,500 in the identical assessments.

It’s price noting that the CPU – which is probably going an engineering pattern – was examined on a Gigabyte Z490M motherboard with 2133MHz of super-slow DDR4 reminiscence, so it’s doubtless this setup hampered the Core i5-11600K’s efficiency.

It’s not all unhealthy information, both, as, regardless of the poor setup, the CPU managed a 19% improve in single-core efficiency in comparison with its Comet Lake-S predecessor. There seems to be a problem with multi-core efficiency, although, because the current-gen CPU at the moment ranks 13% quicker than its successor.

If we do maintain the low RAM clock speeds in thoughts, nonetheless the 12 MB of L3 cache, a 3.9 GHz base frequency alongside 4.9 GHz boosts are unable to match AMD’s phenomenal IPC uplift over last-gen.

Whereas the efficiency of the Intel Core i5-11600K isn’t a lot to shout about, Intel’s Rocket Lake-S lineup appears to be like set to be spearheaded by a probably record-breaking CPU. The Intel Core i9-11900K lately posted the quickest ever single-core consequence on Geekbench, going by a current leak.

The AMD Ryzen 5 5600X is among the coolest CPU and runs 200MHz decrease than that of the Intel SKU however making higher outcomes on Geekbench. It is going to be fascinating to see how these new Rocket Lake-S CPUs catch up towards AMD and if provide higher worth in addition to efficiency or not.

Intel is about to announce its long-awaited Rocket Lake-S CPUs on March 15.
