So 147 fps faked to show how "good" is RL, vs 148 real fps 10700k
RL won't beat even CL
But they didn't make a comparison against the 10700K. The comparison was between the i7 11700K and either the Ryzen 7 5800X or the 12-core Ryzen 5900X (it is not clear as the presenter mistakenly said 12-core Ryzen 7 - if the 12-core is correct then she should have said Ryzen 9. If the Ryzen 7 is correct then he should have said 8 core.).

Instead of trying to make us guess what you're thinking, why not just tell us?

In the 2nd game, despite the lower average fps, the Rocket Lake CPU is giving a better experience. Compare the frame lows.
10900k min - 18fps, 1%-22fps, 0.1%-22fps vs
11900k min - 30fps, 1%-32fps, 0.1%-32fps

It's unlikely people will tell the difference 63 and 68 fps, but everyone will notice when the frame rate tanks to 18fps using a 10900k vs a much more reasonable 30fps for the 11900k.

Considering how few game scale to 16 threads or beyond, it will be the significant exception where Rocket Lake loses to Comet Lake in gaming. The differences aren't going to be significant, but they should consistently be in favor of RL.

As he said, look at the CPU usage. While the 11900 has two less cores it still has much lower usage and about the same FPS.

Edit:
They sure are rubbing it in how they can make more than just 3 CPU skus.
Except it doesn't. It does in one game, but not the other, so what is the conclusion we're supposed to be looking at? 11900k has more than twice the usage in the game below looking at the running graph. The temperatures look weird as well. Why is the 11900k at 56C while the 10900k is at 28C if as you say the 11900k is getting less stressed. Some of the 10900k cores are at 22C, that's 71F or room temperature. What cooling are they using to achieve that with a load on the CPU? Water cooling won't get temperatures that low.
