Rocket Lake processors, which Intel will reduce the number of cores in the upper segment, seem to make the difference with the advantage of the new architecture. Core i9 processor reaching 5.3 GHz was revealed in the test.
Rocket Lake processors, which the semiconductor manufacturer will switch to Cypress Cove cores, will offer a 19% IPC increase over the slides.
Core i9-11900K doesn’t lag behind despite track difference
As a result of the latest Geekbench, it was seen that the Core i9-11900K closed the gap thanks to the IPC increase despite the low core-track count. In the test, in which the Core i9-11900K, which will come in 8/16 configuration, works in the 3.5-5.3 GHz range, it is seen that the chip is at the same level in multi-core with 10/20 Core i9-10900K, although the frequency reached with all cores is unknown. The processor, which reaches 5.3 GHz in a single core, has a 34.95% difference to its predecessor.
Leading the single core list so far, the Ryzen 9 5950X has left its place to Intel’s solution, with an 11% difference with the latest test result of the Core i9-11900K, which has not yet been released for sale.
The fact that the Core i9-Core i7 classes will come in the same 8/16 configuration, which causes the striking core / track distribution in Rocket Lake, raises questions about the performance difference between segments.
According to the test, the 8/16 Core i7-11700K Colorful, operating in the 3.6-4.6 GHz range, managed to outperform the Core i9-10900K in the single core test it entered on the Z590 chipset motherboard.
