Does the Intel Core i9-11900K offer the same Ethereum Hash Rate as a GeForce RTX 2060?

There is a lot of mining hunger, so much so that they put us to mine Bitcoin on a Nintendo Game Boy and now to mine Ethereum on an Intel Core i9-11900K, and that is that although the stock of graphics cards will not improve until the end of the year, while prices will continue to experience more increases, now the Chinese mining industry claims that the Intel Core i9-11900K is capable of mining Ethereum with a Hash Rate of up to 27 MH / s, basically it is a performance very close to that offered by an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060.

This basically takes us back to the early mining fads where the CPU was used to mine cryptocurrencies, but with the rise of GPU mining, mining on a CPU no longer made sense, or well, at least until now, and it is that without graphics to buy, going back to using CPUs is always a possibility, although there are serious doubts that this will become popular, basically due to the enormous consumption that this entails, which is indicated that it can come close to 300W.

The strong point of the Intel Core i9-11900K is in the AVX512 instruction set, and it is that despite its 8 cores, thanks to these instructions and stable operation of these 8 cores @ 4.80 GHz, the floating-point performance is much higher than previous Core processors making its performance comparable to that of the GeForce RTX 2060, although of course, with higher power consumption and the need for good cooling, not to mention the space that is required to create numerous systems with this CPU, instead of a single system full of GPUs, so at the level of space and consumption, it seems that it is not a viable option.

In principle, no new CPU mining craze should appear, basically, it gives visibility to a rather strange fact that only shows that miners are hungry to find an alternative to the use of GPUs that have basically disappeared from the market.
