Intel Core i7-10700KF 8 Core Rocket Lake Desktop CPU Also Spotted Within Ashes of The Singularity Benchmark
The Core i7-10700K and the Core i9-10900K identical chip with the only differentiating factor being the clock speeds and the power limits. The Core i7-10700KF would feature 8 cores and 16 threads along with 16 MB of L3 cache. The chip seems to feature a 100 MHz higher base clock than the Core i9-11900K at 3.60 GHz. This is similar to how Intel Core i7-10700K came with a 100 MHz higher clock than the Core i9-10900K but we have to consider that the Core i9-10900K featured a different core configuration versus the 10700K (10 cores vs 8 cores) and that is simply not the case here.
The Core i7-11700KF and the Core i9-11900K will feature an identical TDP of 125W (PL1) but the Core i9-11900K is expected to feature a 250W (PL2) rating while the Core i7-10700KF might end up with a 225-230W PL2 rating. The Core i9 CPUs also tend to feature Thermal Velocity Boost which is not featured on the Core i7 parts. As such, the 11700KF will feature 100-200 MHz lower clocks than the 11900K.
This is also the ‘KF’ variant which comes with a disabled iGPU. It is possible that Intel will be releasing both ‘K’ and ‘KF’ variants at launch but with a launch dates still weeks it is hard to confirm.
The performance metrics show the chip scoring 11300 points in the benchmark with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card and 64 GB of DDR4 memory.
The average frame rate for the CPU was 126.7 FPS. The chip is on par with the Core i9-10900K at 1440p (Crazy Preset) but at the same time, slower than the Core i9-9900K and AMD Ryzen 5 5600X.
The problem with Ashes of The Singularity benchmark is that results that are from different users are not reliable mean of comparison since they are running on different platforms.
Further more, we have no indications on whether the tested CPUs are overclocked or running on stock clocks. As of now, the only thing this benchmark confirms is that the Core i7-11700KF is on its way for release in Q1 2021.
But one thing is certain, the Rocket Lake lineup will help Intel regain its gaming performance crown. Nevertheless, count on AMD to counter-attack with its own next-generation Ryzen refresh lineup.
The CPU war is raging more than ever!
