Leaked and tested at Geekbench 5, the first marketplace Intel Core i9-13900K Raptor Lake CPU features 24 cores and a boosted rate of up to 5.8 GHz.
On the Geekbench 5 database, a rating that was even stronger on the same testing platform has been revealed.
A retail chip with 24 cores and 32 threads in an 8 P-Core and 16 E-Core arrangement is what the Intel Core i9-13900K Raptor Lake CPU sample used for this test appears to be. We can determine that this is a superior “Retail-Ready” sample depending on its clock frequency alone, even if the CPU only has 68 MB of total cache. The chip’s base frequency of 3.0 GHz and standard boost frequency of 5.5 GHz was retained throughout the testing.
The ASRock Z690 Taichi motherboard and 32 GB of DDR5 memory were used in this Intel Core i9-13900K Raptor Lake CPU test. Although we don’t know the actual memory speeds, they should have been speedy based on this result.
Let’s get right to the performance numbers: the Intel Core i9-13900K Raptor Lake CPU, clocked at 5.8 GHz, offers impressive multi-core CPU performance, outperforming the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X by up to 55 %, and the Intel Core i9-12900K by up to 47%. Even the Ryzen Threadripper 3990X, which has 64 Zen 2 cores, is outperformed by the chip. In single-threaded tests, the chip delivers a significant 30% improvement over the Ryzen 9 5950X and 14% over the 12900K.
The designer officially revealed the details of AMD’s Ryzen 7000 Desktop CPUs, which will feature peak rates of up to 5.7 GHz. It appears like Intel is simply holding onto its frequency crown for the time being. Within the upcoming generation, both CPU makers will offer some unbelievable clock speeds (above 5.5 GHz+), which will undoubtedly result in a significant expansion of the single-core application suite.
