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 i9-11900K8C/16T @ 5.3 GHz 1905 10994
Intel Core i9-11900K8C/16T @ 5.3 GHz 1902 10967
Intel Core i9-11900K8C/16T @ 5.3 GHz 1894 11048
Intel Core i7-11700K8C/16T @ 4.4 GHz 1551 8849
Intel Core i9-10900K10C/20T @ 5.3 GHz 1402 10933
AMD Ryzen 9 5950X16C/32T @ 4.9 GHz 1682 16726
AMD Ryzen 7 5800X8C/16T @ 4.7 GHz 1669 10427
AMD Ryzen 9 5900X12C/24T @ 4.8 GHz 1664 14061
AMD Ryzen 5 5600X6C/12T @ 4.6 GHz 1606 8102
Intel Core i7-11370H4C/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.
