Hardware detective Tum_Apisak has dug up new benchmarks for Intel’s forthcoming Core i5-12400. It’s an unreleased chip, but a eBay seller recently put the hexa-core Alder Lake processor up for purchase for $364.77.
It’s not the first time that the Core i5-12400 is making rounds in the hardware circles. Last month, a Bilibili user shared some Core i5-12400 benchmarks where the chip was putting up some very strong performance. On this occasion, we get to see the Core i5-12400 go up against the Ryzen 5 5600X in Adobe Premiere Pro from the PugetBench benchmark suite.
If we put all the small leaks together, the Core i5-12400 reportedly comes equipped with six Golden Cove cores at 2.5 GHz that can boost up to 4.4 GHz. The Alder Lake processor also sports 18MB of L3 cache and a 65W PBP (Processor Base Power). The Ryzen 5 5600X, on the other hand, wields six of AMD’s Zen 3 cores that operate with a 3.7 GHz base clock and 4.6 GHz boost clock. The chip has 32MB of L3 cache and a 65W TDP. The Ryzen 5 5600X lacks integrated graphics so the Core i5-12400F is a more fair comparison. However, it doesn’t matter since Intel’s F-series SKUs have the same level of performance as their non-F counterparts.
