Finally after the launch of the Tiger lake processors from Intel, the users have been awaiting the launch of the new flagship processors and it looks like things are finally looking up. The next-level processor has finally surfaced online.
With so many launches from Intel, it is not surprising that this benchmark run of the latest Intel Core i9-11900K Rocket Lake-S processor is the first so far. The listing was posted by Twitter user TUM_APISAK with the latest base clock at 3.5Ghz.
The tweet further combines the integration of the latest GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card and 32GB of RAM for memory options. The system that is likely to feature the new Intel Core i9-11900K processor tested at 64 fps at 1080p screen resolution and 62 fps at 1440p, which is not necessarily the best option at the moment, especially for a processor of this calibre.
In comparison, the latest AMD Ryzen processor, the Zen-3 powered Ryzen 9 5950X manages to have a pretty amazing display panel showcasing 70 fps at 1080p screen resolution. So, even with this latest launch from Intel, the users might be left questioning the performance of the device.

But, the engineering test sample of the latest Intel Rocket Lake-S processor doesn’t signify the actual and full performance of the chip, which could very likely be completely different and a lot better when integrated in a system.
Even though the Benchmark does draw a comparison with the latest Ryzen processors, it is still too early to draw conclusions surrounding the same. But, with so many of the latest benchmark leaks that have been happening around, it is not surprising at all that the Rocket Lake chipset is all set to be launched on the expected date of March 2021.
The Rocket Lake S processors will likely be Intel’s first mainstream desktop platform to be equipped with the latest PCIe 4.0 for enhanced graphics cards and storage options. Further details suggest that the device will most likely be compatible with the currently available LGA1200 motherboards.
But, more than that, Intel is also likely going to release its 500-chipsets and collaborate with the board partners for a new series of motherboards, which is likely going to be the last one for the years to come.
