Intel Core i5-12400 is similar to Ryzen 5 5600X in multicore
Intel Core i5-12400 will be one of the processors that will power the 12th generation Core series with Alder Lake architecture, we have already seen results from the i9-12900K.
Intel Core i5-12400 is similar to the Ryzen 5 5600X in the multicore range
The Core i5-12400 is a 6-core, 12-thread CPU that does not have the efficient e-cores enabled, so the 6 cores are all high-performance P-cores. The processor would have a boost clock speed of 4.4 GHz with a TDP consumption of 65 W, it can also reach 4.0 GHz on all cores. Graphics would be handled by the UHD 730 (Xe).
A Bilibili leaker has shared the first results of the Core i5-12400 in three of the most commonly used tools, CPU-Z, AIDA64, and Cinebench R20.
According to CPU-Z, the Core i5-12400 scores 681.7 points in the single-thread test and 4983.8 points in the multi-core test, beating the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X (8 cores and 16 threads).
In the Cinebench R20, the CPU achieves 659 points on a single core. In the multi-core test, the result is close to that of a Ryzen 5 5600X (6 cores and 12 threads).
Looking at the power consumption and stability shared by the AIDA64 tool, we see that the processor reaches a consumption of 78.5 W and 60 °C in the stress test. The CPU seems to run very cool.
Intel intends to launch the corresponding K, non-K, and KF models in early November, including the i5-12400. Its predecessor, the i5-11400, currently costs $182. If the 12400 is offered at a similar price, it could be a very interesting option.
