Intel’s newly rumoured Intel Core i5-12400F appears to be highly competitive against AMD’s Ryzen 5 5600X offering

Recently we saw a leak by the French technology website, Comptoir Hardware, about a non-K series Intel CPU that offers six cores and six threads—the Intel Core i5-12400F.  The CPU is considered to be a mid-level CPU, offering a Base Frequency Power (PL1) of 65W that is not expected to launch until the beginning of next year.

According to reports, VideoCardz has followed up on this recent leak and also tracked information completed by tech company MSI. MSI has stated that the Intel i5-12400F uses a “new smaller die with only 6 Golden Cove/Performance cores present and no Gracemont/Atom/Efficient cores at all.” They have provided readers with “CPU-Z, Cinebench, overall gaming, and power consumption figures,” but also state to check out Comptoir Hardware for their full review of the CPU.

According to sources, CPU is the first of non-K CPU models which have been extensively tested before its launch date, as well as being an ES or Engineering Sample version with an “S-Spec code of QYHX”.

  • 12400F CB23 ST
  • 12400F CPUZ MT
  • 12400F CPUZ ST
  • 12400F Gaming
  • 12400F Power

VideoCardz found that the CPU in talks is a “pre-release qualification sample,” which in turn shows that the performance is closely resembling the final version in its current state. Comptoir Hardware has also leaked information that the motherboard which was used for testing was set specifically to 117W for its power limit and was tested in a Microsoft Windows 11 environment. Furthermore, the system also consisted of DDR5 RAM and an AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT GPU.

The frequency of the sample has been observed between 800 MHz (wouldn’t go lower) up to 4.4 GHz with 1 core. After reaching the Tau (a period in which the CPU can maintain in the PL2 state) the frequency dropped to 3.4 GHz.

The Intel Core i5-12400F shows up to be highly competitive against AMD’s Ryzen 5 5600X, which also carries six cores and twelve threads on its CPU. The biggest difference which can be seen between the two CPUs is that Intel’s version will possibly sell for a lower cost than the AMD version.
