The online Tech Website, Anandtech somehow got their hands on the first Retail unit of the Intel i7-11700k Processor and became the first one to review it. They somehow bought the first Review unit a full month before the official launch.

Intel i7-11700k Review reveals that the Processor is very power-hungry, and can hardly catch Zen 3 Ryzen Processors in Core-to-Core performance

Considering the price, and 8 Core design, the Intel core i7-11700k Processor should be placed against the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X which is the fastest 8 Core based on the Zen 3 Core Architecture.

As for the pricing, it is obvious that the Intel Core i7 processor will be cheaper than the Intel Core i9 Processor, but we don't know yet how Intel will price their 11th Gen Rocket Lake Processors.

Moreover, some reports claim that the prices of Intel Core i9 might start from $400 in the US and $300 for the Intel Core i7 in the US Market. Since, the Ryzen 7 5800X is around $500, making 11th Gen Intel Core Processors cheaper might be a major benefit to making the 11th Gen Processors compete against the Zen 3 Based Ryzen processors.

The 11th Gen Intel Rocket Lake Processors (codenamed "Rocket Lake S") will deliver high-speed performance at lower prices. The latest Processor family is set to be launched in the First Quarter of 2021
