Intel Core i5-11500 processor spotted in Geekbench benchmark

Published

on

The Geekbench benchmark database now has a six-core Intel Core i5-11500 (Rocket Lake-S) processor. It operates at 2.7 GHz and can execute up to 12 command streams simultaneously. The maximum automatic overclocking frequency is 4.6 GHz.

Noting that the processor was installed in an engineering board for Intel Rocket Lake-S, and not in a serial board based on the Z490 or Z590 chipset, the source suggests that the processor was not a serial one, but from a test batch.

In the single-core performance test, the Core i5-11500 scored 1588 points, not only 35% ahead of the Core i5-10400, its predecessor based on the Comet Lake-S architecture, but also being faster than the Core i7-11700K model, also representing the Rocket Lake-S generation. …

The lag behind AMD Ryzen 5 5600X in single-core performance is only 1%, in multi-core – 11%.

Intel is expected to release 11th Gen (Comet Lake-S) processors in March.

The GeForce RTX 4080 can also be overclocked to incredible

Galax continues to prove that they are one of the best when it comes to overclocking graphics cards. After the departure of EVGA, Galax as a whole is probably the only company that places a strong emphasis on this direction.

The GeForce RTX 4080 can also be overclocked to incredible frequencies.  Galax RTX 4080 SG took the frequency over 3.6 GHz on the core

The GeForce RTX 4080 SG model was able to overclock to a frequency of over 3.6 GHz on the core. More precisely, we are talking about a frequency of 3615 MHz. This is slightly less than the RTX 4090 HOF at 3.8 GHz, but it’s still an incredible figure. Especially if you keep in mind that the GeForce RTX 4080 SG is no match for the HOF versions. At the same time, it is not yet known whether Galax will release the RTX 4080 HOF.

Galax, unfortunately, does not disclose overclocking details, but it can be assumed that we are talking about the use of liquid nitrogen, as in the case of extreme overclocking RTX 4090 HOF.

When the GeForce RTX 4090 is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Card consumption can be reduced by 33% by sacrificing 8% performance

When the GeForce RTX 4090 is a wolf in sheeps

Contrary to early leaks and rumors, the GeForce RTX 4090 turned out to be very energy efficient and even more economical than the RTX 3090. But Nvidia’s new product can be made even less voracious.

When the GeForce RTX 4090 is a wolf in sheep's clothing.  Card consumption can be reduced by 33% by sacrificing 8% performance

The authors of the QuasarZone resource decided not only to achieve less power consumption from the RTX 4090, but also to achieve this in two different ways. The first is reducing the power limit, but the second is more complex – it is undervolting or reducing the voltage on the GPU.

When the GeForce RTX 4090 is a wolf in sheep's clothing.  Card consumption can be reduced by 33% by sacrificing 8% performance

As you can see from the diagrams, both methods are effective, and in both cases you can achieve an impressive reduction in power consumption with a slight drop in performance. In the case of power limit management, power consumption can be reduced to 268 W, with a loss of only about 6% of performance. Reducing the voltage allows you to achieve power consumption of only 232 watts, sacrificing less than 8% of performance.

Thus, the RTX 4090 can be turned into a mid-range card in terms of power consumption, while keeping its monstrous performance almost unchanged.

For some reason new Intel processors do not support DLVR

Intel was expected to endow Raptor Lake processors with DLVR (Digital Linear Voltage Regulator) technology. Information about it appeared last year. However, it has now become known that current Intel CPUs do not support it.

For some reason, new Intel processors do not support DLVR technology, designed to reduce power consumption

Information about DLVR was neither in Intel’s presentation, nor somewhere on the site describing Raptor Lake. However, the CPU DLVR Bypass Mode Enable item has appeared in the new BIOS of Asus motherboards. True, its activation does not lead to anything.

For some reason, new Intel processors do not support DLVR technology, designed to reduce power consumption

One of the overclockers from the Asus team said that the technology does not work because Intel eventually disabled it in the new generation of processors. For what reasons, it is not clear, but from the tests we know that, perhaps, in vain, since Raptor Lake turned out to be even more voracious than Alder Lake. However, next-generation CPUs may well support the new technology already fully, however, there is no clarity on this matter.

DLVR is a digital linear voltage regulator that complements the main one. This should allow a significant reduction in energy consumption.
