A few hours back, we published a post on a Chinese x86 processor designed by Shanghaibased Zhaoxin Semiconductor company which is said to be on par with Intel’s 7th Gen i5, the Core i5-7400. We searched for benchmarks and found more than a dozen on Geekbench, the fastest of which on par with the Zen+ based Ryzen 7 2700U in the multi-core test.

Now, there is no way that this processor is going to beat the i5-9400, but it does manage to level with the 2nd Gen mobile Ryzen chips. It’s hard to say whether we’re looking at a mobile or a desktop part, but some outlets have confirmed that this is a Lenovo notebook running the Zhaoxin KX-U6780A processor. The U possibly stands for mobile. We know the supposed i5 match runs at 3GHz, so it’s very possible that the desktop components with higher clocks and increased L3 cache can perform similar to the 7th Gen Intel CPU. However, we can’t confirm anything as of now. We’ll have to wait for benchmarks and third-party reviews.

  1. 1 is 4 core the other is 8 core…. only then they match multi-core perf, and single is way behind.. what kind of comparison is this? one looking for attention
