Intel Core i7-11700K apparently falls behind AMD Ryzen 7 5800X in early benchmarks

Any growing excitement for the Intel Core i7-11700K may fall flat after the processor officially launches, with early benchmark performance revealing slower speeds than its rival, the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X.

The Rocket Lake-S desktop CPU was expected to be unveiled at an event on March 16, but German retailer Mindfactory listed Intel’s latest addition several days ago for €469 (around $570 / £410 / AU$730) – and the product page is still live at the time of writing.

Folk who purchased these early CPUs have posted benchmarks to German-based tech forums such as ComputerBase, HardwareLuxx and PC games Hardware, giving us a fair idea of how well we can expect the i7-11700K to perform against existing products on the market.
