A Chinese YouTuber named ChaoWanKe managed to get his hands on an Intel Core i9-11900K "Rocket Lake-S" processor. It's unknown whether the sample he obtained is an engineering sample or the final retail version. ChaoWanKe performed some benchmarks, you can check the highlights at VideoCardz. Basically, Rocket Lake-S seems to perform well in single-threaded performance but is left in the dust by AMD processors in multi-threaded benchmarks due to a lack of cores.
Otherwise, the CPU works relatively well in other benchmarks, such as CPU-Z or Cinebench. The CPU scored 708.7 points in CPU-Z single-thread benchmark and 6443.9 points in the multi-threaded test. Those results are comparable to other tests we have already seen in the past two weeks.
Rocket Lake-S is expected to be introduced next week at a digital-only CES 2021 event. Based on the latest rumors, the chip may not hit retail shelve until sometime in March.
