Intel Core i7-11700K Shows Nearly 20% IPC Gain in Geekbench 4

A Geekbench 4 result of Intel’s 11th Gen Core i7-11700K has surfaced indicating an IPC uplift of nearly 20% in Geekbench 4 compared to its predecessor. The CPU ran at a base clock of 3.6GHz and a boost of 5GHz paired with a Gigabyte Aorus Z490 Master motherboard.


The single-core score was pegged at 7,857 while the multi-core score managed to cross the 42K mark, making it 18% and 10% faster in the two benchmarks, respectively.

However, on having a closer look, you can see that the bulk of the improvement comes from the Crypto-score and the underlying AES encryption test. Here, the Comet Lake chip score just 5,942 points while the Rocket Lake part manages a hefty 9,811 points.

The integer and floating point scores are less impressive, showing half as much gain (around 10%), meaning that the IPC gain for Rocket Lake-S will mainly hover in the low teens.
