Intel Core i9-11900KB enthusiast-grade Tiger Lake CPU benchmarked: a Beast Canyon beast?

Intel’s new Core i9-11900KB may not be out yet, but someone has managed to subject the processor to 3DMark’s TimeSpy and Fire Strike benchmarks. This processor is rumored to be used in the NUC 11 Extreme (Beast Canyon).

The chip is compared by Tom’s Hardware with the Core i9-11900K Rocket Lake processor and the new chip manages to hold its own. The tested processor was in a system with a GeForce RTX 3060 and reached clock speeds of 3.3, 4.9 and 5.3 GHz. The chip also had 24 MB cache and a TDP of 65 watts.

The Compute Element appears to be equipped with the 11900KB.

The Core i9-11900KB enthusiast-grade Tiger Lake CPU scored slightly worse than the Core i9-11900K in most cases, but still managed to beat 11900K in the Fire Strike physics and Fire Strike Combined benchmarks. The table below lists all scores and comparisons.

It is not yet clear when the NUC 11 Extreme Beast Canyon computer will be released and how much it will cost. It is also not entirely certain whether the Core i9-11900KB will be the heart of that system, although the chance is very high.
