Intel is all set to launch its next-gen Rocket Lake-S desktop CPUs in March and we are getting a lot of leaked benchmarks of these upcoming processors now. Already the Core i9-11900K, Core i7-11700K has been spotted, and now it’s turn for the budget Core i5-11500.
Spotted by none other than @TUM_APISAK, the Core i5-11500 seems to have a good improvement over last-gen, essentially in the single-core score. It has been spotted running with 16GB RAM along with a 2.71 GHz base and 4.57 GHz boost frequencies.
This could be Intel’s key to budget success as in recent years it has found a lot of sales in the budget with value for money CPUs like Core i3-9100F, Core i3-10100, and Core i5-10400. The new 11th Gen Core i5 has posted a healthy single-core score of 1588 points which is a healthy improvement by a whopping 35%!!!
The Core i5-10500 posted a Geekbench score of 1176 points in single-core and multi-core score of 5997 points. This means the new Core i5-11500 has 20% improvement in multi-core performance, which is indeed very impressive considering the fact that it is still based out of 14nm process.
This easily beats out the Ryzen 5 3600X but does fail to beat the Ryzen 5 5600X, however, its main competition will be with the upcoming Ryzen 5 5600.
