Network sources shared information about the performance of the Intel Core i5-12400 processor in synthetic tests CPU-Z, AIDA64 and Cinebench R20. This processor, unlike other models of the future Alder Lake family, does not offer a hybrid architecture of small and large cores, and uses only six high-performance Golden Cove cores.
The source of the leak was one of the users of the Chinese social network Bilibili. The whistleblower hid all of the processor’s identity, leaving only the 12th generation as well as the “400” in the title, which points to the Core i5-12400 model.
According to the provided screenshot of the CPU-Z program, the processor will be able to automatically overclock one core at a frequency of 4.4 GHz, and for all – up to 4.0 GHz. In the single-core test of this benchmark, the chip scored 681.7 points, in the multi-core – almost 4984 points, surpassing the 8-core and 16-thread AMD Ryzen 7 2700X on the Zen + architecture. The current Ryzen 5 5600X in the same tests is gaining 638 and 4880 points, respectively.
During the stability and power consumption test, the processor used up to 78.5 watts of power and warmed up to 60 degrees Celsius.
In the single-core Cinebench R20 test, the Core i5-12400 processor scored 659 points, beating all AMD Ryzen 5000 chips. In the multi-core test, the Intel chip was only able to compete with the same six-core Ryzen 5 5600X model, showing a result of 309 points higher.
Below is a graph of the performance of various processors in the Cinebench benchmarks.
According to the latest data, the 12th Gen Intel Core processors will be released on November 4th. Only models of the senior segment with an unlocked multiplier should go on sale. We are talking about chips Core i9-12900K, Core i7-12700K and Core i5-12600K, as well as their KF-versions that do not have an active integrated graphics core. At the moment, it is not known whether the company plans to release low-end processors at the same time, like the same model Core i5-12400, or whether it decided to postpone their release until a later date.
It should be noted that the cost of the current generation Core i5-11400 processor of the Rocket Lake-S is $ 182. If Intel decides to keep this price tag for the new generation model, then the new product promises to be a very attractive offer in its price range.
