A comparative review has been published between the i7-11700K and the i9-10900K in video games, one of the most useful tests that we are going to find on this processor, which will be released in the next few weeks.
CapFrameX has released new benchmarks for the Intel Core i7-11700K desktop CPU using the Rocket Lake architecture. The CPU occupies about 8 cores and 16 threads with a base clock speed of 3.6 GHz, 4.6 GHz on all cores, and 5 GHz on a single core.
Today I want to share with you some Rocket Lake results. Because I bought the 11700K from Mindfactory this is no problem.
In the last days and weeks many leaks and even reviews have been showed on the internet.
These benchmarks were made with a relatively new BIOS. (1/2) pic.twitter.com/3pfrUvFMx2

These tests were apparently conducted with a new BIOS that promises to improve the performance of the Rocket Lake-S processors somewhat. The performance test and comparison was done with a Z590 motherboard with the new BIOS. The graphics card was a GeForce RTX 3090 and some 32GB of 3200MHz DDR4 RAM was added with a single channel to test the i7-11700K and dual channel to test the Comet Lake-S i9-10900K processor.
In total, three video games have been tested; Crysis Remastered, Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order, and Cyberpunk 2077.
In Crysis Remastered, the Intel Core i7-11700K is 6% faster than the i9-10900K. In Cyberpunk 2077 the difference is 2%, and in Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order there is a difference of 10%, both in favor of the Rocket Lake-S piece.
Keep in mind that the i9-10900K offers more cores and a higher boost clock speed (5.3 GHz), even so, it does not manage to beat the 11700K in any test.
We’ll see if this is enough to become a tempting option for gamers, especially considering the Ryzen 5000 (Zen 3) chips in video games. We will keep you informed.
