Now that some etailers have decided to start shipping Rocket lake-S chips early, AnandTech has taken a bit of an unconventional approach to get around the Intel NDA and purchased a retail unit for review. This chip goes head-to-head with the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X, and comes up…somewhat lacking it would appear. AnandTech details the performance of the chip against the Core i7-10700K as well as the Ryzen 7 5800X. The new Rocket lake-S chips are hot, power hungry beasts. From the looks of it, if you have a choice go with the Zen 3 option. But, in today’s market of “take what you can get”, the Core i7-10700K may be the more attractive option overall. We’ll see more later this month when the NDA lifts for launch on the 30th. Until then, take a look at AnandTech’s coverage.
