Courtesy of @leakbench, we have our first glimpse of the Geekbench performance of Intel’s upcoming Rocket Lake-S Core i5-11500. Single core performance comes in at 1588, while multi-core hits heights of 7265. This is a sizeable gain from the 10th Gen chips, with single core performance on this 6/12 models besting even the 8/16 Core i7-11700K that’s been tested. It still falls short of the Ryzen 5 5600X, though that task will be left for the 11600. We’ll see what happens come March when these chips are expected to officially launch.
