Intel Core i9-11900K leak suggests a record-breaking CPU that could be trouble for AMD

Intel’s Core i9-11900K processor, supposedly the soon to be launched flagship of the next-gen Rocket Lake range, has been spotted again in an online benchmark which shows the CPU comfortably beating out AMD’s Ryzen chips in single-core performance – and doing well enough in multi-core, too.

In the Geekbench result highlighted by VideoCardz (via Wccftech), Intel’s incoming 8-core flagship is shown with what is purportedly its final spec – a top boost clock of 5.3GHz (with Thermal Velocity Boost), and base clock of 3.5GHz (although the latter would be 200MHz slower than the 10900K).

Testing the processor over a few runs in Geekbench, the highest score the 11900K achieved (in a Gigabyte Z490 Aorus Master motherboard with 32GB of 3600MHz RAM) was a towering 1,905 in single-core, with 10,994 hit in multi-core.
