The growing enthusiasm for the Intel Core i7-11700K may fade after the official launch of the processor. The early benchmark performance shows slower speeds than its competitor, the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X.
The Rocket Lake-S desktop CPU should be introduced at an event on March 16, but German retailer Mindfactory listed Intel’s latest addition for € 469 (about $ 570 / £ 410 / AU $ 730) a few days ago – and the product page is still online at the time of writing.
People who bought these early CPUs posted benchmarks on German technology forums like ComputerBase, HardwareLuxx, and PC-Spiele Hardware to give us a good idea of how well we can expect the i7-11700K to perform against existing products on the Market cuts off.
As with all leaks, take the results with a grain of salt – the early sale date has yet to be included in an official statement from Intel, and we cannot verify that these purchases (and test results) are 100% legitimate.

Who is in your corner
The Intel Core i7-11700K scores 600 points in the single-core benchmark and 5,749 points in the multi-core comparison compared to the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X with 622 points in the single-core benchmark and 6,022 points in the multi-core in Cinebench R20.
The results we see from other benchmarks like Cinebench R23 and CPU-Z are equally inconspicuous. The Ryzen 7 5800X dominates the i7-11700K in multi-core performance, despite Intel’s occasional lead in single-core. That’s not to say that Intel’s newest CPU is inherently bad, but it does seem to struggle against cheaper competition.
We’ll have to wait for the “official” release of the Rocket Lake-S desktop CPU before we can make our final verdict, but it certainly doesn’t look good for Intel in its battle against AMD.
