The Geekbench database has a record of testing the final (release) version of the eight-core and 16-thread Intel Core i7-11700K generation Rocket Lake-S processor. It is based on the new Cypress Cove architecture and built using 14nm process technology. According to the test, the novelty was 8% faster than the flagship AMD Ryzen 9 5950X in a single-threaded test.
Intel Core i7-11700K was tested with Gigabyte AORUS Z490 Master motherboard. In single-threaded test the chip scored 1807 points, and in multi-threaded & ; 10 673 points. AMD Ryzen 9 5950X results & ; 1672 and 16,515 points in the same tests respectively.
According to the benchmark, the Core i7-11700K has a base frequency of 3.6GHz, and in auto overclocking mode it goes up to a value of 5GHz. The chip will come to replace the current 8-core and 16-threaded 10th generation Core i7-10700K Comet Lake-S. Despite the lower clock speed range (3.6/5.0GHz vs 3.8/5.1GHz for Comet Lake-S) the Core i7-11700K was 34% and 19% faster in single-threaded and multi-threaded tests respectively.

Intel's 11th generation Rocket Lake-S desktop processors are expected to be announced early next year. They will be able to work with current Intel 400-series motherboards, but the manufacturer is also going to release new 500-series boards for them. One of the most important features of the Rocket Lake-S processors will be support for PCI Express 4.0.
