11700k vs 10700k

When it was reported that Intel will release an 11th-generation hyper-threaded CPU mainly focused on single-core performance, we shed a bit of tears for our workstation enthusiast friends, because we tried to keep our burning excitement a secret. Obviously, 2021 will be all about Intel's attempt to regain the gaming throne from AMD.

Last year, Intel did not disappoint, but AMD was looking for blood. Although the i7 10700K has some impressive single-core benchmarks, the Ryzen 5000 CPU is a notch higher. Now, with conflicting leaks on the Internet about the performance of the i7 11700K, we are not sure how it compares not only with the old and new Ryzen, but also with the 10700K.

Even if the i7 11700K is about to launch, things are still unclear, so let's try to separate fact from fiction through "vs" matching and help you decide whether it is worth upgrading to i7 10700K or whether you have to wait for Rocket Lake.

As you may know, the kernel is the basic operating system in a computer processor, so it is a good place to start a wonderful bloody showdown. The

i7 10700K has a total of 8 cores and is considered the sweet spot of modern AAA games. For most games, you need at least four, so this CPU has enough processing power to run all existing games and any games related to release in the foreseeable future.

It is strongly assumed that the i7 11700K will not go too far in terms of basic hardware, and we have no reason to argue about it. So what we can get here is a core that only differs in architectural composition.

As most people have already assumed, it is logical to assume that the i7 11700K will have hyper-processing capabilities, which means that it will have the same 16 threads as the i7 10700K. The problem is, if you stick too closely to the 10700K Comet Lake formula, Ryzen will continue to dominate. If you can believe the controversial "UserBenchmark" report, compared to 10700K, 11700K has far superior single-core and multi-core characteristics. The

clock speed is the right assistant for your CPU core. If the core is the pillar that supports the building, the speed of the clock defines the efficiency of the internal business. As we all know, the basic frequency of the i7 10700K is 3.8GHz, thanks to Intel Turbo Boost technology, the frequency reaches 5.1GHz. 3.5-4GHz is recognized as the gold standard for gaming. Although hampered by Ryzen 5000 and even some 3000 series CPUs, 10700K is an excellent CPU. It also badly needs overclocking to hit 5.1 GHz across all 8 cores. Some silicone lottery winners even managed to get their 10700K to 5.3GHz, despite improved cooling.

According to a leak from the Russian science and technology website Lab501, 11700K has a base clock speed of 3.8GHz at least right now, a single-core boost of 5GHz, and a multi-core boost of 4.6GHz, but all this is based on a unit test. The goal of the test is to allow Intel to perform firmware revisions before the product is finalized and released to a large number of gamers who need frames.

Intel is not known for the great leap from architecture to architecture, but considering that these chips should have similar hardware, Intel really has to abandon the "small step" manufacturing process and instead support the "big step" spirit. ". This is the only way for them to challenge Ryzen’s dominance in the gaming field. The

i7 10700K is based on Intel’s Comet Lake model and has more cores and hyper-threading throughout the series. Thanks to Turbo Boost Max 3.0, the single core and Multi-core enhancements, and faster DDR4 memory support than its predecessor Coffee Lake. It also supports the new 400 series chipset based on the LGA 1200 socket.

uses the Rocket Lake building block, the i7 11700K is loaded with the Cypress Cove core, which is a 14nm rear port of the 10nm Ice Lake core structure. Digging into the past in this way seems a bit redundant, but obviously these cores will have DDR43200 memory support, enhanced deep learning and VNNI support, and a 10% to 19% increase in IPC performance. Basically this means more frames per second and a smoother overall gameplay.

The basic requirement for efficient computing and multitasking is hyperthreading (multithreading in AMDtongue), and both CPUs have it. The only problem is that Intel supports single-core functionality rather than multi-core prowess. This means that although they will have multitasking capabilities, Ryzen CPUs are still the best jugglers, but how do these Intel chips stack up on each other?

If the task at hand is fairly common, the i7 10700K is very capable. We are talking about games, running TeamSpeak and music streaming services, and making tags. For 10700K, these are not problems, but for content creation and demanding parallel workflows, it is not too hot.

We believe that if there is any truth to what we have heard about Cypress Cove, the i7 11700K will provide better support for multitasking, but because Intel is determined to regain the gaming throne, it will still not have a central processing unit. . The first choice of professionals.

All of these leaks should be solved with a little salt, but for now, Intel seems unable to re-conquer the realm of video games. exists

Performance, does it provide better cost-effective features? If the leak is credible, there may be a price difference of about $ 140 between them. The 11700K comes with an upgraded UHD 750 integrated graphics card, but let's face it, if you spend more than $ 400 on the CPU, it will crash and load a separate GPU.

This is a tough call, but in the final review they are all very well suited CPUs for gaming. 11700K sounds delicious in our opinion, but at least the Lab502 reports are disturbing. It's best to try to wait patiently and wait until the 11700K is released, when we have a fuller understanding of its capabilities before making a decision.
