Intel Core i5 11400 (Rocket Lake) is also faster than predecessor in multi-threaded tasks

Intel recently unveiled the Rocket Lake architecture. We now officially know that the Rocket Lake chips have up to eight cores and sixteen threads, use the new Cypress Cove cores and have an integrated GPU with the Xe architecture. Several performance figures have already emerged from Core i9 models, a Core i5 based on RKL-S can now also be found in the Geekbench database.

To be precise, it concerns a Core i5 11400, a CPU with six cores and twelve threads at a base and boost clock speed of 2.59 GHz and 4.39 GHz. 64 GB ddr4 was used on an MSI Z490M Gaming Edge WiFi with Windows 10 64-bit. The Geekbench 5.3.1 result shows a single and multi-core score of 1247 and 6197 points.

Wccftech has put the results alongside those of the Core i5 10400, the Core i5 10600K and the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X. The latter is of course a processor that is only just available and is a mere 121 euros more expensive, at the time of writing. However, it is currently the least pricey AMD CPU based on Zen 3.

From the recently emerged performance of the Core i9 11900K, it became clear that it performs less well in multi-threaded tasks compared to the Core i9 10900K, which has two additional cores. The Core i5 11400 is relatively comparable with the Core i5 10400, its direct predecessor, with twelve threads. The Core i5 11400 in Geekbench 5 turns out not only to be faster on single-core performance, even when all threads are active the Rocket Lake-i5 is faster. It’s about 11.8% and 9.2% in single and multi-threaded tasks, respectively. The Ryzen 5 5600X is currently the most current competitor from AMD, which remains by far the fastest in this category.
