Intel has officially teased its new Rocket Lake-S chips at CES 2021, with the flagship Intel Core i9-11900K teased in a variety of games in CPU limited situations: 1080p gaming and it includes Cyberpunk 2077.

Intel's new Core i9-11900K was put up against AMD's new Zen 3-based Ryzen 9 5900X which has 50% more cores but that brute Intel IPC performance is shining through, even on 14nm+++++. Intel is clocking its new Core i9-11900K processor at all the way up to 5.3GHz which is some pretty high clock speeds for a CPU, helping it beat AMD.

The company tested a bunch of games at 1080p, including Total War: Three Kingdoms, Gears of War 5, Metro Exodus, Cyberpunk 2077, Watchdogs: Legion, Farcry: New Dawn and Assassin's Creed Valhalla.

What I do love is Intel hasn't stopped being Intel... there are no benchmark numbers on the Intel CES Tech Preview charts at all... which is... well, Intel being Intel I guess.
