Intel's flagship processor of the new generation - Core i9-11900K - still bypasses Ryzen 7 5800X, but only after overclocking

Intel is slated to launch Rocket Lake desktop processors in the first quarter of next year. The flagship of this line will be the Core i9-11900K model with eight cores and frequencies, presumably 3.5-5.0 GHz. Today the test results of this CPU overclocked to 5.2 GHz have appeared on the Web.

In CPU-Z, the novelty is gaining 706 and 7199 points in single-threaded and multi-threaded modes, respectively. And these are very good results.

More specifically, this is more than the current Intel CPUs and the eight-core Ryzen 7 5800X. True, without overclocking, Intel's new product in multi-threaded mode is still inferior to a competitor from the AMD camp.  

So far, the latest leaks regarding Rocket Lake give hope that the processors will really turn out to be quite good. They are unlikely to be able to somehow compete with the Ryzen 5000 in terms of energy efficiency, but in terms of performance, they probably will at least not lag far behind. True, performance is more important in relation to price, but we can only guess about that.
