Intel Core i5-11500 demands attention as it outscores the i7-11700K and offers almost +30% gains over the i5-10400F in Geekbench single-core benchmark

Another Rocket Lake-S processor has shown up on Geekbench in the form of the 6-core, 12-thread Intel Core i5-11500. The sample produced a surprisingly good result that nipped past a recent i7-11700K single-core test score. The i5-11500 reached a maximum frequency of 4.57 GHz and offered excellent gains over the i5-10400F.

The Intel Core i5-11500 has been spotted on Geekbench by Tum Apisak, where it managed a single-core result of 1,588 points and a multi-core score of 7,265 points. The chip was measured at 2.71 GHz to 4.57 GHz and was at stepping level 1. Although it’s a theoretical maximum score, if this was an average result, it would place the Rocket Lake i5-11500 very close to the top of Geekbench’s single-core charts, nipping at the heels of AMD’s Ryzen 5000 desktop processors.

Interestingly, the 6-core, 12-thread part managed to produce a higher score than its more powerful fellow Rocket Lake-S representative, the Intel Core i7-11700K. The i5-11500 was actually +2.39% ahead of the i7-11700K, even though the latter could take advantage of clocks from 3.60 GHz to 4.58 GHz. So maybe the i7 processor has had an inauspicious outing here, but things are looking bright for the midrange i5 part.

The Intel Core i5-11500’s result in this particular benchmark is also way beyond what we have managed to produce with a Comet Lake i5-10400F (F = no iGPU), which has clocks of 2.90 GHz to 4.30 GHz and also processes with 6 cores and 12 threads. Our highest mark of 1,223 points is easily overwhelmed by this benchmark run by the i5-11500, which presents +29.84% gains. It seems this easily overlooked Rocket Lake representative could be well worth a second look from desktop PC builders when it’s released for sale.
