The Geekbench benchmark database now features a six-core Intel Core i5-11500 (Rocket Lake-S) processor. It operates at 2.7 GHz and can execute up to 12 command streams simultaneously. The maximum automatic overclocking frequency is 4.6 GHz.
Noting that the processor was installed in an engineering board for Intel Rocket Lake-S, and not in a serial board based on the Z490 or Z590 chipset, the source suggests that the processor was not a serial one, but from a test batch.
In the single-core performance test, the Core i5-11500 scored 1588 points, not only 35% ahead of the Core i5-10400, its predecessor based on the Comet Lake-S architecture, but also being faster than the Core i7-11700K model, also representing the Rocket Lake-S generation. …
The lag behind AMD Ryzen 5 5600X in single-core performance is only 1%, in multi-core – 11%.
Intel is expected to release 11th Gen (Comet Lake-S) processors in March.
