More benchmarks for the 13th Gen Intel Core i9-13900K processor have surfaced, teasing what the company's flagship Raptor Lake desktop CPU will probably be capable of. Per a new listing spotted on Geekbench 5
, Intel's 13th Gen Core i9-13900K processor can apparently achieve a single-core score of 2,314 and multi-core score of 26,464 in that particular test, both of which are exciting numbers. This is purportedly a retail version of the chip, and what's also interesting is the frequency that's listed, which alludes to clock speeds of as high as 5.8 GHz. Comparison charts shared by Wccftech
have indicated what the publication is calling "insane amounts" of performance in the realm of multi-core, exceeding even the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X. Enthusiasts who decide to splurge on a 13th Gen Core i9-13900K processor can apparently expect a very fast chip that leverages 24 cores (8 P-Cores and 16 E-Cores) and comes equipped with 68 MB of cache. The scores were achieved with an ASRock Z690 Taichi motherboard.
Intel is expected to launch its first 13th Gen Core desktop processors in October alongside its Z790 platform. AMD's Ryzen 7000 Series, on the other hand, should be out earlier in September.
Coming straight to the performance figures, the Intel Core i9-13900K Raptor Lake CPU at 5.8 GHz offers insane amounts of multi-core CPU performance with up to 47% increase over the 12900K and a 55% uplift versus the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X. The chip even outperforms the Ryzen Threadripper 3990X which offers 64 Zen 2 cores. In single-threaded tests, the chip offers a 14% increase over the 12900K and a massive 30% uplift over the Ryzen 9 5950X.
