Intel Core i7-11700K Review and specifications 2022

The $399 Intel Core i7-11700K processor spaces into Intel’s Rocket Lake item stack at a cost that crushes between two of AMD’s most famous Ryzen 5000 processors. The 11700K’s estimating should make it an appealing chip assuming you need the most exhibition from a standard Intel stage that you can get without addressing the leader cost, yet it faces tough opposition from the AMD chips that have overwhelmed our rundown of Best CPUs (basically when they’re free at retail).

Cypress Cove, Intel’s first new design for work area PC contributes six years, concedes the Rocket Lake chips a 19% expansion in IPC in many jobs. However, the backported Cypress Cove (which was intended for 10nm) accompanies a major tradeoff: Rocket Lake is as yet carved on the 14nm interaction and tops out at eight centers and sixteen strings. That is a stage back from the past gen 10-center Comet Lake i9 models and fails to measure up to AMD’s brutal 16-center Ryzen 9 5950X leader.


Rocket Lake’s 19% IPC gain to a great extent counterbalances the presentation hit from the decreased center count, however it left Intel in a difficult situation as it cut its item stack into Core i9 and Core i7 families — both series top out at similar eight centers.

The $399 Core i7-11700K fits the meaning of being a lower-end Core i9-11900K with similar eight centers and sixteen strings as the $539 lead. Furthermore you could likewise set aside some money by deciding on the illustrations less Core i7-11700KF (it’s indistinguishable in each and every other perspective) and score the chip for $374. That opens up a $75 hole between the 11700K and the Ryzen 7 5800X, which additionally doesn’t accompany an incorporated illustrations motor.

To represent the impulses of binning and to hamstring the 11700K to make fake division, Intel dropped the 11700K’s pinnacle help recurrence by 300 MHz contrasted with the Core i9-11900K, diminished the memory frequencies in low-dormancy mode, and dropped its backing for the new Adaptive Boost Technology (ABT). The ABT tech is adequately an auto-overclocking highlight that doesn’t void your guarantee, yet the 11700K is a completely overclockable chip. That implies that losing that component, or the extra 300 MHz of pinnacle support speed, probably won’t discourage overclockers hoping to save $140 over the 11900K.

The 11700K drops into a vast opening in AMD’s item stack — AMD has a $150 hole between the $449 Ryzen 7 5800X, which likewise accompanies eight centers, and the $299 six-center Ryzen 5 5600X. The undeniable valuing hole in AMD’s stack should give the 11700K some space to breathe for the time being, however AMD says that its forthcoming Ryzen 5000 G-series chips, also called the ‘Cezanne’ APUs, will plug that evaluating hole when the $359 Ryzen 5 5700G comes to showcase in August 2021.


In any case, the 5700G seems to focus on the downstream Core i7-11700 rather than the K series model, offering the 11700K the chance to flourish as a more affordable 11900K as well as Ryzen 7 5800X other option. Coincidentally Intel’s own severe division impacts the 11700K’s presentation altogether, diminishing its allure.

Of late however, the triumphant chip is the chip that you can really purchase. In that capacity, the Core i7-11700K has profited from one practically difficult benefit — accessibility. AMD has been hamstrung by supply deficiencies prodded by pandemic-related production network disturbances combined with uncommon interest, prompting cost gouging on almost its whole stack.

Supply is improving for AMD, however, and the Ryzen 7 5800X has been comprehensively accessible at or close to its MSRP for generally the previous month. Furthermore supplies appear to be holding consistent, setting up a pitched fight with the Core i7-11700K.

We’ve covered the Rocket Lake family top to bottom in our send off day audit, so head there for better grained subtleties of the engineering and more extensive item family. Intel spreads the Rocket Lake (RKL-S) chips across the natural Core i9, i7, and i5 families, however Comet Lake Refresh (CML-R) chips step in for Core i3 and Pentium. Those chips include a similar engineering as other Comet Lake chips however accompany marginally sped up. You can dive more deeply into them here.

Intel’s chip frequencies have turned into a confounding exhibit of four distinct kinds of Turbo Boost, numerous with both single-and multi-center proportions, that vary dependent on every group of chips. We’ve limited these postings down to the pinnacle support frequencies in the table beneath, with each demonstrating the pinnacle helping tech utilized. You can observe more data on Rocket Lake’s lift tech and a more far reaching posting of the multitude of frequencies here.
