Among all the processors in the Rocket Lake-S family, the Intel Core i5-11400 will be the cheapest. It will be based on the same configuration as its predecessor, 6 cores and 12 threads, and will only be 100 MHz faster than its Comet Lake i5-10400 counterpart.
Today the first benchmarks for i5-11400 have appeared on Geekbench. The sample was tested twice using an ASRock Z590M Pro4 motherboard and 16GB DDR4 RAM (2133 MHz).
The unreleased CPUs were not included in the official Geekbench 5 CPU ranking; hence the values are the average scores from all valid entries.
The single-core score of 1490 points makes the i5-11400 34% faster than its predecessor. As for the multi-core score, it is at 6576 points which is 16% more than the i5-10400.
It is expected that Intel will launch the i5-11400 on 18th March with a price tag of USD 182.
Intel is expected to launch its 11th Gen Core series on 18th March.
