Intel Rocket Lake-S matches Ryzen 9 5900X single-core performance in Geekbench

Whiles Ashes of the Singularity is often the go-to database for spotting new GPUs, Geekbench seems to have become the biggest source of CPU leaks. The latest leak concerns an Intel Rocket Lake-S processor with eight cores and sixteen threads. The engineering sample is listed with a maximum frequency of 5.0GHz and was used in an HP OPEN 30L gaming desktop (codenamed GT13-0xxx) with HP 886C motherboard, which is most likely unreleased hardware.

The Geekbench score indicates the Rocket Lake-S processor beats Intel's Core i9-10900K in the single-core benchmark but not in the multi-core test. The single-core score of 1645 points puts Intel's upcoming chip on par with the AMD Ryzen 9 5900X -- but the AMD chip is a lot faster in the multi-core test. Compared with the eight-core AMD Ryzen 7 5800X, the eight-core Rocket Lake-S appears to be about 6 percent slower. Do keep in mind these are scores from early silicon, so it may not be an accurate picture of the final retail product.
A quick comparison using Geekbench data reveals that the CPU is indeed faster than Core i9-10900K (the current flagship), but only in the single-threaded benchmark. The 10900K is still 13% faster in the multi-threaded test. How would that translate into real-world experience, we don’t know yet. With a single-core score of 1645 points, the unnamed Rocket Lake-S CPU would match Ryzen 9 5900X and Ryzen 7 5800X, but lose slightly on the multi-core front when compared to the CPU with the same core count.
Intel's Rocket Lake-S is expected to hit the market in March 2021. It will use the LGA1200 socket but there will be new 500-series motherboards. Rocket Lake-S is the first desktop processor from Intel to support PCI Express 4.0.
