The six-core and twelve-thread Intel Core i5-11400 will be the youngest and most affordable processor in the future Rocket Lake-S series. The novelty will differ from its predecessor, the Comet Lake-S series Core i5-10400, not only with a different architecture, but also with a maximum automatic overclocking frequency increased by 100 MHz.
The Geekbench 5 synthetic benchmark database contains fresh benchmark results for the upcoming six-core chip. The processor was tested twice as part of the system on an ASRock Z590M Pro 4 motherboard with 16GB DDR4-2133 RAM. The low memory frequency definitely affected the final performance result, so it should not be taken as a final indicator. When serial samples of these chips fall into the hands of reviewers, they are unlikely to be tested with slow RAM.
Below is a list with the average performance values of engineering samples of Rocket Lake-S series processors, taken from the Geekbench 5 database.
Since its first introduction to the Core i5-11400, Intel has continued to optimize its performance. The operating frequency range of the chip has not changed and is from 2.6 to 4.4 GHz. At the same time, BIOS optimizations have brought tangible performance gains from the Rocket Lake-S junior. So, according to the latest data, in the Geekbench 5 single-threaded performance test, the Core i5-11400 processor is gaining 1500 points, which is 34% higher than the result of the Core i5-10400. In a multi-core test, the new 11th generation Core was 16% faster than its predecessor, showing a result of 6664 points. But the junior Rocket Lake-S still has not yet reached the performance level of the six-core AMD Ryzen 5 5600X.
