Core i5-12400F vs. Ryzen 5 5600X Face off

The Core i5-12400F, which will compete with the Ryzen 5 5600X in the middle segment, seems to offer the same performance as its rival with a much more affordable price.

We talked about Intel’s 12th generation Alder Lake desktop processors in detail and examined the flagship Core i9-12900K with all the details. The blue team announced 6 new processors of the “K/KF” series in the first stage. Now let’s look at the first details about the Core i5-12400F, which we expect to be ambitious in terms of “price / performance”.

French publication Hardware counter, interestingly managed to access the yet unannounced Core i5-12400F. Judging by the information leaked in the past, this chip will appear with 6 cores and 6 threads.

In fact, we recently mentioned that Intel will produce Alder Lake processors in two different structures. The i5-12400F, on the other hand, will only have 6 Golden Cove performance cores, while the Gracemont will lack productivity cores. So it will be based on two different types of smaller chip molds.

The processor reportedly tested is an engineering example, and it wouldn’t be surprising to see higher performance scores in the final product. The Intel Core i5-12400F also has a TDP of 65W. Comptoir Hardware says the motherboard has an automatic power limit of 117W. This may indicate that the processor is running in PL2 or, as it is now called, Maximum Turbo Power mode.

The upcoming CPU was tested on Windows 11 operating system with DDR5 memory. In games, there doesn’t seem to be much difference between the Core i5-12400F and the Ryzen 5 5600X. However, Intel’s new processor will probably go on sale at a more affordable price, and we mentioned the possibility that the final chips will offer better performance. Let’s take a look at the early tests:
