    I'm happy with the i5-11400. I wanted it for a Plex/Unraid server. I found out everything I needed to know, a few weeks back, from the Intel spec sheet on their database. I'm not disappointed!

    11900K is a decent performance CPU which is worse and less efficient than the competition. The name sucks but whatever. The price is where it calls customers morons to their face and that's the major problem with it.

    There's nothing wrong with releasing a less competitive design but it ought to be priced accordingly if you want it to sell.

    Maybe they don't want it to sell. Could be a ridiculous long con to make the next --900K "improvement over last gen" charts look amazing.

    that doesnt really work when you have rival also on the charts, you say peformance is decent but its stuggling vs the older model 10900k which is cheaper heck even the 10850k can be had for around £350 not to mention it uses more power while losing 2 cores

    Its actually slower than the 10900K where the GPU is not the bottleneck, what a pile of crap.

    I think it's fair to say that this is Broadwell all over again. Technically its a better cpu but in reality it's not really an upgrade at all. Buy to say its 'struggling' is just silly. All of those cpus will give you stupid levels of desktop performance especially gaming and non of them 'struggle' in anything unless your doing professional work that scales well over multiple cores in which you wouldn't be on a desktop platform anyway imho.

    Was just looking for that SW benchmark, like uscool said i guess it's true. Opposite in BFV where AMD performance tanks for some reason. Guess some games just prefer certain CPUs over others.

    Dont think it would be wrong to place rocket lake below AMD and Intel 10th Gen

    Lets ignore AMD for a second and just look at Intel competing with Intel, the 11900K is slower than the 10900K its replaced, in everything, while also using more power.

    Don't forget taking away 2 cores and basically charging premium price

    Hmm taking away 2 cores and increasing power consumption

    I upgraded mine with 8500t a couple of months ago. Do the 11000s bring any major changes?

    Better iGPU and 20 PCI-E lanes. That means you can have 16 lanes for HBAs and have 4 left over for an NVME cache pool.

    If they had stuck with 10 cores you'd probably be talking 300 watts plus with their "moar power" mode enabled.

    Not everything. And If you think I'm defending I'm not. It's not a great release from Intel but I'm not surprised either, but we'd be fools to judge this release by just its flagship product. The lower tier cpus are where the money is for intel and the 11600's and lower skus look competitive and bring pci4 into the equation.

    The 10600K is still better, i get that a lot of reviewers are pointing at the 11600K and saying "its not all bad" but they are also starting to feel concious of bashing Intel and are looking for an angle to say something positive.
