There are some new benchmark results that provide an indication of the single-threaded performance of the Intel Core i5-11400. This chip is based on the upcoming Rocket Lake-S architecture, it's a six-core model with 2.6GHz core clockspeed and up to 4.40GHz Boost. It uses the new 14nm Cypress Cove cores. The new core architecture promises a better IPC versus the cores used by the current generation, which are still largely based on the aging Skylake architecture.

WCCF Tech writes the Core i5-11400 scores 12 percent better in Geekbench 5's single-thread test than the Core i5-10400. Multi-core performance sees a 9 percent boost:
The performance benchmarks were carried out on an MSI Z490M Gaming Edge WiFi motherboard which was equipped with 64 GB of DDR4 memory. The speeds for the DDR4 DIMMs have not been reported. In single-core tests within the Geekbench 5 benchmark, the Intel Core i5-11400 Desktop CPU scored 1247 points and in the multi-core tests, the chip scored 6197 points. The single-core performance shows a jump of 12% while the multi-core performance is boosted by 9%. This is a respectable gain over its 10th gen predecessor.
Rocket Lake-S processors are expected to hit the market in March.
