Intel's upcoming 11th Gen Core CPUs seem to offer a nice increase in single-threaded performance. We've already reported about some leaks last month and now there's a fresh score of the Intel Core i7-11700K in the PassMark database.

The chip achieved a single-threaded performance score of 3548, which is slightly higher than the 3500 posted by the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X flagship. It's about 14 percent higher than the score achieved by the 10700K. Of course, the 11700K doesn't impress in the total CPU score as it has just eight cores and sixteen threads.
The CPU is listed with a 3.6 GHz base clock and a 5.0 GHz turbo clock, which are identical specifications to what the Geekbench leak had already confirmed. The CPU scored 27,108 points in the CPU Mark test with 3,548 points in the single-thread rating alone. The CPU may not be as strong in the multi-threaded test as Intel’s i9-10900K featuring 10 cores, and Ryzen 9 5950X featuring 16 cores, but the sample still managed to score really high single-thread result.
This Rocket Lake-S chip is expected to be revealed next week, but product availability isn't expected until sometime in March. It's the final 14nm desktop processor from Intel with a new core architecture called Cypress Cove and integrated graphics based on the Xe architecture.
