Don’t be surprised … AMD’s Ryzen 7 5800X is one powerful processor. It’s either this or the 5900X I’ll be getting soon for my next PC build.
Taken from Notebookcheck … The Intel Core i7-11700K has appeared on Geekbench 5 to showcase its single-core and multi-core performance. The eight-core processor cannot match the single-core performance of the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X and even falls behind the multi-core performance of the Ryzen 5 5600X, AMD’s latest six-core processor.
The Core i7-11700K has followed its bigger sibling onto Geekbench 5, but with a less than stellar showing for Intel’s upcoming Rocket Lake-S platform. While the Core i9-11900K at least managed a significantly higher single-core score than AMD’s new Ryzen 5000 processors, the same cannot be said for the Core i7-11700K.
As the screenshot below shows, the Core i7-11700K managed a measly 1,551 points, putting it on par with the Core i7-1165G7. In fairness to Intel, the Core i7-11700K outscored the Core i7-10700K by 13%. However, the Core i7-11700K also fell 7% behind the results of the Ryzen 7 5800X in our database.
