The latest test results of the 8-core, 16-thread Intel Core i9-11900K processor have appeared on the network. In a single-threaded Geekbench V5 test, Intel’s future flagship was able to demonstrate a 35% performance increase relative to the current flagship. Moreover, with only sixteen threads at its disposal, the i9-11900K was able to match the multi-threaded performance with the current top processor of the “blue giant” Core i9-10900K, which has 10 cores, 20 threads!
According to the official Geekbench rank, the Core i9-11900K is the first chip to break the 1,900 point barrier:
Together with the Core i9-11900K processor, the Gigabyte Z490 Aorus Master motherboard and 32GB of DDDR5 RAM with a frequency of 3600MHz participated in the test.
Below is a table comparing the performance of current Intel and AMD processors with the Core i9-11900K:
|Geekbench V5 performance|
|CPU:||CPU configuration:||Single-threaded |
|Intel Core i9-11900K||8C/16T @ 5.3 GHz||1905||10994|
|Intel Core i9-11900K||8C/16T @ 5.3 GHz||1902||10967|
|Intel Core i9-11900K||8C/16T @ 5.3 GHz||1894||11048|
|Intel Core i7-11700K||8C/16T @ 4.4 GHz||1551||8849|
|Intel Core i9-10900K||10C/20T @ 5.3 GHz||1402||10933|
|AMD Ryzen 9 5950X||16C/32T @ 4.9 GHz||1682||16726|
|AMD Ryzen 7 5800X||8C/16T @ 4.7 GHz||1669||10427|
|AMD Ryzen 9 5900X||12C/24T @ 4.8 GHz||1664||14061|
|AMD Ryzen 5 5600X||6C/12T @ 4.6 GHz||1606||8102|
|Intel Core i7-11370H||4C/8T @ 4.8 GHz||1556||5177|
In the single-core test, the Core i9-11900K processor was ~ 13% faster than AMD’s current flagship Ryzen 5950X. However, in the multi-core test, the “red” processor is still ~ 53% faster thanks to the simultaneous processing of 32 threads.
Nevertheless, if we compare only 8-core models, then the Core i9-11900K processor was able to bypass the Ryzen 7 5800X chip by 13-14% in a single-core and 5-6% in a multi-core test.
Thus, in the near future, the title of the best gaming processor may return to Intel again. And given the situation with a severe shortage and overpriced current AMD Ryzen 5000 processors, the “blue giant” only needs to provide stores with a sufficient number of finished products.
