CPU-Z screenshots with engineering samples of the Intel Core i9-11900K, i9-11900, and i7-11700 processors have leaked, alongside another screenshot with the results of the alleged Core i7-11700 on Cinebench R20. Additionally, a Core i7-11700KF has appeared on the Ashes of The Singularity database.
Starting with the CPU-Z screenshots shared on Chiphell (via @harukaze5719), the engineering samples seem to be clocked at a lower frequency than the retail units, expected to feature a 3.5GHz base clock, all-core boost of 4.8GHz, and a single-core boost of 5.3GHz. As per the leaker, this engineering sample has 125W TDP and a 3.4GHz base clock, a 4.3GHz all-core boost, and a 4.8GHZ single-core boost.
Both the engineering samples of the Core i7-11700 and i9-11900 have a 65WTDP and a base clock of 1.8GHz, boosting all cores up to 3.9GHz and 4.0GHz, respectively. The single-core boost of both processors also seems to differ, with the i7-11700 boosting up to 4.3GHz and the i9-11900 up to 4.5GHz.
The engineering samples were acquired for 2800 Yuan (£317) for the 11900K, 2300 Yuan (£261 USD) for the 11900, and 1600 Yuan (£181) for the 11700. All samples were tested on an unreleased B560 motherboard.
The same leaker that shared the CPU-Z screenshots also posted another screenshot with a Cinbench R20 result of the Core i7-11700 engineering sample, which scored 529 in the single-core benchmark and 4672 in the multi-core one.
Another interesting leak about the 11th Gen Core line-up has been spotted by Leakbench, who found an entry of a Core i7-11700KF on the Ashes of The Singularity database. Based on the naming scheme of previously released processors, this CPU probably lacks the Xe-LP iGPU of the i7-11700K, but everything else should remain the same. The AoTS entry doesn’t reveal much about the processors, but it seems that it will come with a 3.6GHz base clock, 100MHz more than the rumoured specification of the Core i9-11900K.
Compared to the results of other Intel processors with the same core configuration (8C/16T) from the 9th Gen and 10th Gen Core series, the results are roughly the same and within the margin of error, depending on the entry. This doesn’t mean that there is no improvement over previous generations, but given the IPC gain, we were expecting better performance.
Intel Rocket Lake-S processors are expected to be announced during CES 2021, on January 11-14, 2021, and released during the first quarter of 2021.
