The Geekbench database has revealed the performance test results of the new Intel Core i5-11400 processor of the new Rocket Lake-S family.
Intel has confirmed that 11th generation chips will hit stores in the first quarter of this year. However, the manufacturer has not yet announced the exact start date of sales. Meanwhile, new leaks related to these processors are still appearing on the Web.
According to Geekbench, the Intel Core i5-11400 is a six-core, twelve-thread processor clocked at 2.6 GHz. In automatic overclocking mode, it can be increased to 4.4 GHz across all cores. The processor scored 1247 and 6197 points in the single-core and multi-core performance test.
It is very likely that one of the preliminary engineering samples participated in the test, which may explain such low performance numbers. The expected innovation from Intel in the same test did not even meet the 8th generation Core i7-8700K Coffee Lake model. At the same time, the Intel Core i5-11400 averaged 9% faster than its predecessor, the Core i5-10400, despite having a lower base frequency of 300 MHz and a Boost frequency of 100 MHz. Compared to the direct competitor to the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X in the Zen 3 architecture, in Geekbench single-core and multi-core tests, the new Intel product was 23% slower.
Remember that the new Rocket Lake-S chips are built into the Cypress Cove 14nm architecture. They will be able to work with motherboards based on the Z490 and H470 chipsets. In addition, at the last CES show, Intel unveiled the specifications of the 500-series chipset series, the main feature of which was full support for the PCIe 4.0 interface for a video card and storage, which was implemented via CPU. Many manufacturers have already introduced new motherboards based on these system logics. They will be released earlier by the Rocket Lake-S processors themselves, which are not expected until March.
