The next spearhead in the Core i 13000 series portfolio (“Intel Raptor Lake”), the Intel Core i9-13900K with a total of 24 cores and 32 threads, is in the form of a development sampler (“Engineering samples“) appeared in the Geekbench 5 benchmark database and documented with up to 5.5 GHz.

Core i9-13900K ES again in Geekbench 5

The first results of an Intel Core i9-13900K ES at 5.7 GHz were already circulating in July, but due to some discrepancies the creators of the benchmark declared them invalid. These discrepancies may be due to an early beta BIOS or other parameters that influence the result and thus may invalidate the benchmark result.

Valid result with 5.5 GHz and DDR5-6600

However, the results that have now emerged, which attest to a Core i9-13900K with 5.5 GHz and DDR5 and 6,600 MT/s, a single core score of 2,147 and a multi-core score of 23,982 points, had official validity (“valid”). and included in the database.

In the benchmark, the CPU clocked in at 5.35 to 5.5 GHz in Turbo and thus outperforms a Zen 3-based AMD Ryzen 7 5800X (test) by around 24 percent in the benchmark test. single core and around 123 percent in the multi-core test. Proof of score, like the Twitter user known for such posts @BenchLeaks first located.

In particular, in the multi-core test, the significantly higher “core count” compared to the direct predecessor, the Intel Core i9-12900K (test) with a total of 16 cores (8P+8E), is also very noticeable.

16 efficiency cores help in multi-core scenarios

Desktop processors of the Raptor Lake type are based on a hybrid structure with a total of 8 performance cores and 16 efficiency cores in the top model and can therefore access up to 32 threads, while Alder Lake offers a maximum of 24 threads.

More about the subject

By the end of the year at the latest, the eternally young CPU duel will enter the next round and decide between the Core i 13000 series, also known as Raptor Lake-S, and the Ryzen 7000 series, also known as Raphael.
