The upcoming Intel Rocket Lake-S CPU will be launched in the first quarter of 2021. Recently, an Rocket Lake-S CPU with 8-core & 16-thread has spotted at the Geekbench website. With a single-core score of 1645 points, this Rocket Lake-S CPU (Core i7-11700K ?) would have similar singe-core score as Ryzen 7 5800X.

The processor was tested using an HP OPEN 30L gaming desktop (codenamed GT13-0xxx) which is equipped with an HP 886C motherboard.
