As the launch of Intel’s upcoming Core 13000 processors draws closer, more details about Raptor Lake CPUs are also emerging. Benchmark entries for the Intel Core i9-13900, Intel Core i5-13500, and Intel Core i5-13400 processors have recently surfaced, meaning rough specifications and early performance values are now known.
Performance on Geekbench and Passmark
The benchmark leak for the Intel Core i9-13900 is relatively detailed – this was from the Twitter account @Benchleaks discovered in the Geekbench database. Here’s the CPU on a Z690Motherboard from Gigabyte, tested with Windows 10 and paired with 32GB DDR5 memory with unknown clock speed.
Regarding the processor itself, there is talk of a base clock of 2.0 GHz and a maximum clock of 5.287 GHz, which probably means the P cores. Also, the Core i9-13900 should have 36 MB of L3 cache. Compared to the predecessor Core i9-12900 with 2.4 / 5.1 GHz, there would be a lower base but at the same time higher boost clock, plus a 6 MB larger cache.
Along with a new P-core architecture and the eight additional E-cores assumed for the model, the Intel Core i9-13900 should be significantly faster than its predecessor. Appropriately, according to the Geekbench database, the tested model scored 2130 points in the single-core score and 20,131 points in the multi-core score. There are no official results for the predecessor model from Geekbench, but in any case, the Core i9-13900 is even better than the current top model from Intel: the Intel Core i9-12900KS only comes with a much higher TDP at 2071 or 19049 points.
Unfortunately, the leaks of Intel’s weaker Core i5-13500 and Core i5-13400 models are a bit less detailed. Here, the Twitter account @TUM_APISAK has posted two images from the Passmark database, without corresponding links. As a result, some of the benchmark results and clock frequencies of the CPUs known
Unfortunately, no concrete CPU performance value can be seen in the images, which makes it difficult to assess here. At least with regard to single core performance, the jump should probably be a little less than with the Core i9-13900, because if the specified clock speeds are correct, the Core i5-13400 and Core i5-13500 will be delivered. . with a comparatively moderate clock.
While predecessors are sold with 2.5/4.4 GHz and 3.0/4.6 GHz, Raptor Lake CPUs are said to have a base clock of 2.5 GHz and a boost of 4.1 or 4 .5 GHz. A portion of the IPC improvements through the new P-Core architecture is offset by the lower clock. Whether the new i5 processors will still be appreciably faster in single-core applications remains to be seen.
