Following the first benchmarks a few weeks ago, the Intel Core i7-11700K processor back to the center of the spotlight. In fact, apparently someone has already managed to get their hands on it, publishing a lot of information online. This is certainly an atypical event, as it involves an important reality for its market.
In particular, according to what was reported by Videocardz, Mindfactory, one of the largest dealers in Germany, it would already be selling CPUs to consumers. Among other things, apparently, Intel would not have “imposed” any embargo on the aforementioned reseller, so much so that the latter would feel “entitled” to make the sale.
We remember that the processor involved is part of the Rocket Lake-S series and has 8 cores and 16 threads. This range of CPUs should be presented on March 16, 2021, so for the moment there is no official, although some users have already managed to get their hands on the product.
Going into more detail, in the last few hours early customers claimed to have received the Intel Core i7-11700K processor. There is no shortage of evidence, as you can see in the images at the bottom of the news. Obviously, as you can imagine, screenshots related to Cinebench and 3DMark have already been published, which you can find at the bottom of the news.
