The test results of the Intel Core i7 11700K processor, which is among the rumors of the new Rocket Lake family, attracted the attention of users.
The source named Lab501 published the test results of 11th generation Intel CPUs with 8 cores and 16 threads on its website. According to the benchmarks, the Intel Core i7 11700K is stated to be the most powerful Intel processor in the gaming industry.
Before moving on to the results of the tests, it is necessary to share the features of the system used.

i7 11700K Test Results
The Intel Core i7 11700K reached 7927 points in the PCMark10 test software, ranking itself between the Ryzen 7 5800X and the Ryzen 7 3800XT. Besides; In the 3D Mark Fire Strike Extreme tests, the 11th Generation chip scored 16,572 points on the graphics side and 15844 points in the overall test. In both cases, the Ryzen 7 leaves the 5800X behind by a small margin, but again, by a few points, the Ryzen 5 scored lower than the 5600X. In the physics part of the 3D Mark Fire Strike Extreme test, although chips such as Ryzen 9 5950X and Ryzen 7 5800X are over 30,000 points, the Intel Core i7 11700K is located at the bottom of the table by a very large margin and barely exceeded the 25853 points of the Ryzen 5 5600X. looks like.
Moreover, considering these average scores, which we mentioned above, the power draw value of the CPU also draws attention. With the Intel Core i7 11700W consuming 286W of power, this processor ranks second after the 354W power consumption of the Core i9 10900K, which we can describe as a kind of monster if we interpret the table in terms of power usage. The shared power consumption values show that the 11th generation processors run very hot, but if we look at the maximum CPU temperature data fixed at 71 ° C, let’s underline that the Noctua NH-D15 cooling used in the test system does its job well.
If we need to talk about the tests on the game side after the technical tests; AAA productions known in the industry were tested with Intel Core i7 11700K in 4K, 1440p and 1080p resolutions. In summary, this processor officially knows no limits on gaming performance.
It is clear that the Core i7 11700K is the most powerful Intel processor in the gaming space, but it lags slightly behind the new AMD monsters in the Ryzen 5000 series. In GTA V, Shadow of War, Batman Arkham Knight and Ashes of the Singularity, the Intel Core i7 11700K achieves similar results to the 10900K.
The new generation processor declares its leadership as the chip with the highest FPS values in games such as FarCry New Dawn, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Dawn of War 3 and Deus EX – Mankind Divided.
As you can see from the images, the 11th Gen Intel Core i7 11700K does a very good job in the game class. According to the source that carried out these tests, the Core i7 11700K qualifies as the processor with the best performance in gaming. It is also worth mentioning that the shared data is likely to change since it has not yet been released.
