i5-12400 gaming performance results resurfaced, about 5% ahead of i9-11900KF
The i5-12400 is a mainstream 12th generation Core desktop processor with 6 cores and 12 threads in a pure big core design with no small cores. The i5-12400 has 6 cores and 12 threads, with a pure large core design and no small cores. 18MB of tertiary cache, operating at 3.0-4.6GHz, and a thermal design power consumption of 65W. Previously revealed scores show that it has easily surpassed the R5 5600X.
Recently, the i5-12400’s run scores were revealed again. The test platform used an MSI B660M Mortar motherboard, two 16GB DDR5 RAM, MSI RTX 3070 Ti Gaming X Trio graphics card, MSI MAG CORELIQUID C240 water cooling, and a Windows 11 system. The Intel Core i5-12400 outperforms the previous generation Core i9-11900K in games.
Intel Core i5-12400 outperforms Core i9-11900K in games
The Core i5-12400 is a blockbuster processor that will be launched in early January.
The Alder Lake generation Core i5 has a 6-core, 12-thread configuration consisting of Golden Cove (P-cores). The chip does not have e-core efficiency cores like some of its competitors with a hybrid configuration.
The 12400 will have 18 MB of L3 cache and be clocked at 3.00 GHz base and 4.6 GHz boost clocks. The CPU has a TDP of 65 W.
Performance results were provided by Chi11eddog, in which we see the Intel Core i5-12400 running on an MSI B660M Mortar DDR5 (4800) motherboard with a MAG Coreliquid C240 AIO liquid cooler. The processor has an MTP (Maximum Turbo Power) of 117W and was tested with an unlocked 4096PL limit. The Core i9 was tested with the same configuration.
This is the performance of the Core i5-12400, which is on average 2% faster than the Core i9-11900K in all games. The games were tested with a resolution of 1440p.
The win for the i5 is clear considering the price difference between the two when the 12400 and 12400F hit the market in early January.
The 12400 will launch at a price of $180, while the Core i9-11900K will cost $500. Besides the obvious advantages in terms of temperature and power consumption. The Alder Lake option consumes about 75 watts while gaming and the temperature are around 65 degrees.
We look forward to CES 2022 for more news and the official launch and announcement of the B660 and H610 motherboards.
