The next year or so will offer no let up in the desktop processor war between AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) and Intel (NASDAQ: INTC) as both companies look to gear up for significant performance gains. Firstly, Intel’s soon to be released Rocket Lake-S 11th Gen desktop CPUs have appeared in yet another new online benchmark suite following last month’s PassMark leak that revealed some stellar performance numbers.
The latest figures, posted on Geekbench and reported on by Videocardz seem to confirm that the likes of the Core i9-11900K will offer single-threaded performance much faster than AMD’s Ryzen 5000-series – a surprising result given how those CPUs were already record breakers when it came to lightly-threaded performance. The multi-core results were impressive too with the Core i9-11900K reaching 10,994 points, which eclipses that of the Ryzen 7 5800X at 10,427 points.
The latter is also equal to the Core i9-10900K, which has two more cores and four more threads, which is equally impressive for a single generational performance improvement, especially for Intel.
