A new entry for an Intel Core i7-11700K has been found in Geekbench 5 database. This time around, we have results for the upcoming processor up against the Ryzen 9 5950X while running at frequencies of up to 5GHz.
The Intel Core i7-11700K is an 8C/16T processor using the 14nm-based Rocket Lake-S architecture with a base clock of 3.6GHz, which boosts up to 5.0GHz. Featuring the Cypress Cove core architecture, the upcoming Intel processors are reportedly coming with a double-digit IPC gain when compared to Comet Lake-S processors.
The Geekbench 5 database entry of the Core i7-11700K shared by @leakbench shows a single-core score of 1807 and a multi-core score of 10673. The system was using a Gigabyte Aorus Z490 Master motherboard, which is expected to support 11th Gen Core processors with a BIOS update.

Comparing these scores with the core i7-10700K, there is a 34% improvement in the single-core score and a 19% improvement in the multi-core score, despite being slightly lower clocked than its predecessor.
One thing to note is the massive improvement in AES-XTS/crypto workloads, which appears to be running 200% faster on the Core i7-11700K (1800 vs 5400). It also has a better single-core overall score than the whole Ryzen 5000 line-up, scoring higher in crypto and integer workloads, but losing in floating-point workloads.
Intel Rocket Lake-S processors and Intel 500-series motherboards are expected to be announced in CES 2021.
KitGuru says: Based on these scores, do you think Intel Rocket Lake-S processors will outperform the Ryzen 5000 series? Are you planning to upgrade your CPU and motherboard in the new year?
