Intel Core i9-11900K breaks 1.9K points barrier in Geekbench single-core benchmark –

Intel Core i9-11900K crosses 1.9K score in Geekbench SC benchmark

Intel Rocket Lake-S flagship CPU exposing its power. 

The new benchmark scores of the Core i9-11900K processor put it 35% higher in the single-core Geekbench V5 benchmark over its predecessor. With 8-cores and 16-threads, it is also able to match the 20-thread 10900K CPU in the multi-core benchmark. Therefore the upcoming Rocket Lake-S CPU might be an interesting choice for gaming and single-threaded applications, but at the same time, it shouldn’t be much slower than its predecessor in multi-threaded workloads.

So far no desktop CPU has been able to reach 1900 points in the single-core benchmark, according to Geekbench’s own processor ranking.  However recently somebody has been testing the Core i9-11900K on a Gigabyte Z490 Aorus Master motherboard and 32GB of DDDR-3600 Memory. With such a setup, the CPU has finally broken this barrier:

In two instances where the CPU scored 1.9K points, it would run at 5.2 GHz+ throughout the test with sporadical drops to 5.0 – 5.19 GHz. It is unclear if the test was performed with any form of overclocking applied (increased PL1/PL2 or load duration levels). However, this could also be a stock configuration:

Based on the four Core i9-11900K results, the CPU is 12-13% faster than AMD 5000 (Zen3) flagship Ryzen 5950X in the single-core benchmark. However, in the multi-core test, the Ryzen CPU is still 47-53% faster thanks to 32 threads (which a double of 11900K threads).

The Cypress Cove based Intel CPU is also faster than 8-core and 16-thread Ryzen 7 5800X (a better choice for apple to apple comparison). The Intel CPU offers 13-14% and 5-6% higher performance in single-core and multi-core benchmark respectively.
