Another leaked performance result thanks to the Geekbench database. VideoCardz writes about a sighting of the Intel Core i7-11700K, an upcoming Rocket Lake-S chip. This eight-core, sixteen-threaded model seems to have a 3.6GHz base clock and 5.0GHz Boost.

Someone tested it in a system with the Gigabyte AORUS 490 Master motherboard and the new 11700K seems to be about 8 percent faster in single-core performance than AMD's Ryzen 9 5950X flagship. Multi-core performance on the other hand is a lot lower as the 5950X has 16-cores. The multi-core performance of the 11700K is quite a bit better than the eight-core 10700K, it almost matches the 10-core 10900K.
The new 11th Gen Core processor has been spotted in the Geekbench database with clock speeds reaching 5.0 GHz. This processor is based on Intel’s new Cypress Cove core design, expected to bring a double-digit IPC gain over the last Skylake-based series. The leaked score of 1807 points in a single-core benchmark appears to confirm this. The processor also scored 10673 points in the multi-threaded benchmark.
