The i9-11900K is gaming tested and does not outperform the Ryzen 7 5800X

Intel Rocket Lake-S may disappoint in terms of performance, according to the leaks of this i9-11900K . It has been compared to the Ryzen 7 5800X and the Ryzen 7 5700G APU, so it seems that Zen 3 is one of the best architectures from AMD.

It appears that “Chinese New Year” is being the subject of “bomb” leaks about 11th generation Intel chips. We already talked about the performance of the i7-11700K, but now the “victim” has been the i9-11900K which has been tested on a Z590 board and compared against the Ryzen 7 from Zen 3. Ladies and gentlemen, the battle between Intel and AMD It is served and, it is closer than ever!

They test the i9-11900K and its performance is not better than Ryzen 7 in games

Getting to the point, the i9-11900K has been tested on a Z590 board (it can be MSI, GIGABYTE or ASUS) at 5.2 GHz and a GIGABYTE RX 6900 XT GPU . The secondary players in this comparison are the Ryzen 7 5800X and the Ryzen 7 5700G APU, which is yet to come.

Mention that the i9 is a Qualification Sample (similar final performance), as we think the Ryzen 7 5700G is too. Regarding AMD platforms, the chosen motherboard is a GIGABYTE X570I AORUS PRO . The source does well to advise that the chips are samples, so we would not be facing their maximum performance yet.

Another detail is that the Ryzen 7 5700G APU has run at a low frequency in all tests, as well as the built-in graphics did not work. On the other hand, the i9-11900K gave quite a few problems in each test, showing blue screens and certain errors when exposed to overclock.

We recall that this i9-11900K has 8 cores and 16 threads , along with a base frequency of 3.5 GHz and a turbo of 5.2 GHz. Using Thermal Velocity Boost, it should go up to 5.3 Ghz. Of all the tests they have done, we will show the following:

  • CPU-Z.
  • Cinebench R20 and R23.
  • Cyberpunk 2077.
  • Wolfestein Young Blood.
  • PUBG.


The i9-11900K scores 719.6 points in single-core and 7035.5 points in multi-core . None of its opponents beat it, falling behind with less than 6,500 points in multi-core, and the single-core is quite far too.

Cinebench R15, R20 and R23

Forward that in all Cinebench the i9-11900K gets a better score than the Ryzen 7 Zen 3, both in OpenGL, single-core and multi-core CPU. Likewise, we expose you all the captures that the source shows.

Cyberpunk 2077

I advise you to watch the video where you can see several sequences in order to check the FPS “dance” between one chip and another. Similarly, the Ryzen 7 are ahead of the Intel Core i9-11900K.

Wolfestein YoungBlood

Another of the games tested was the Wolfestein YoungBlood , which resulted in a victory for the Ryzen 7 5800X against the i9-11900K. One thing we haven’t said is that all tests are in 1080p .

PlayerUnknown’s Battleground

In this title, the Intel Rocket Lake-S chip is the best performing chip , beating the 2 Ryzen 7 with Zen 3 architecture. That being said, the source also shows a couple more games, one of them being LoL.

Intel Core i9-11900K release date

Although we do not have a specific day, we know that they will be available from the 2nd quarter of 2021, that is, the release date of the i9-11900K will be from March .

What did you think of its performance? Do you think its price will be good?
