This makes the 11900K about 12-13 percent faster than AMD's flagship, the Ryzen 5950X. Of course, the latter is still a lot faster in multi-threaded tests thanks to its 32 threads.
In two instances where the CPU scored 1.9K points, it would run at 5.2 GHz+ throughout the test with sporadical drops to 5.0 – 5.19 GHz. It is unclear if the test was performed with any form of overclocking applied (increased PL1/PL2 or load duration levels). However, this could also be a stock configuration.Availability of the 11th Gen Core CPUs is expected in March.
