It will be exciting for hardware fans until the end of the year: This fall, AMD, Intel and Nvidia will present new generations of CPUs and GPUs, so you can expect many innovations and, above all, more performance. In addition to the Arc graphics cards, the full release of which is still pending, Intel should also bring the new Raptor Lake processors in the coming weeks. With these models, which will appear as Core i-13000, the company will have to compete against AMD’s Ryzen 7000 CPUs.
Core i9-13900K in the test
The first comparison tests have to show how well this will succeed in the end. At least the performance of Intel’s new flagship, the Core i9-13900K, was rated pretty well recently, because the processor has already been tested in China.
Specifically, a review was posted on the Chinese site Bilibili, which appears to be a collaboration between the leakers. ECSM_Official Y oneRaichu has emerged. At this point, it should be emphasized once again that Intel has not yet officially presented the Raptor Lake generation. Even if they are real, the test results could contain deviations from the final result.
However, if you take the presented performance values as given, Intel’s Raptor Lake will in some cases be significantly faster than the previous generation. In Cinebench R23, a single core of the Core i9-13900K should achieve 2292 points, while the Intel Core i9-12900K only achieves 2020 points. This would make the new generation 13 percent faster here.
The difference is even greater in the multi-core benchmark: here the Core i9-13900K is said to achieve 40,662 points in Cinebench R23, which would put the CPU almost 47 percent higher than its predecessor’s 27,682 points. The reason for this should be the model’s eight additional E-cores.
Based on the test, there should also be a performance jump for players with Raptor Lake. The Core i9-13900K should achieve 762fps in CS:GO at 1080p, while the predecessor only manages 670fps in the same scenario. Unsurprisingly, this jump corresponds almost exactly to the difference in single core performance.
The review also contains several other app and game benchmarks, although at least the latter cannot be assigned directly due to the naming in Chinese characters. If that doesn’t stop you, you can find the full review at the link below.
