Intel 11th Gen Core i5-11600K and Core i9-11900K Review

Finally the newest Intel Rocket Lake processors are here with support for PCIe 4.0 and some interesting boost tricks up their sleeve. Naturally we had to put them to the test.


i5 11600K and Core i9 11900K Review

Well, 11600K looks fairly solid for gaming, if power efficiency isn't important. Looks to be as far as the architecture scales reasonably, more cores is pretty awkward thermals wise.


In fact 11600K is probably the go to CPU for gaming builds now, until AMD undercut it with a 5600 non-X. But I don't think they have the fabrication capacity.

The i5 having stock is their only possible power move when AMD stock is quite hard to come by at the moment

There seems to be plenty available in Finland currently, at MSRP. Which is a strange sight nowadays.
But seeing how Intel has their own fabs, not entirely unexpected.


Thanks for the reviews! That's a massive amount of benchmarks.

Makes me feel good about my 5800X purchase a few days ago, Along with this review and a fair others today, Looks like both CPU manufacturers are about equal when it comes to gaming.

Who would have thought Intel would have a Bulldozer moment :huh:

Hrrmph! I thought the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X fell between stools,so apparently did others as for a long time every cpu above and below it went instantly out of stock when I was seeing 10+ 5800X stock all the time.


When the AMD 5800X makes this lot look pathetic & it's in stock... well. Never mind the R5 5600X isn't a problem to buy either.



Stick with the previous gen if you must be Intel and hope they sort themselves in a year or two.

11gen is an embarrassment.

Maybe for the UK, but stock in many countries is still sparse, even for the 5800x.
