New 13th Gen T-series chips from Intel, including the Core i9-13900T with a 35W TDP, were just released. Given its limited power budget, the new chip performs impressively according to Geekbench 5 benchmarks.
Intel’s 13th Gen Core i9-13900T 35W CPU Beats The 125W Core i9-12900K In Geekbench 5 Benchmark
The Intel Core i9-13900T is a variant of the Core i9-13900 set with such a scarce TDP design, to begin with the specific requirements. The T-series chip is constrained to a 35W TDP, in contrast to the standard chips’ 125W TDP in the unlocked and 65W TDP on the Non-K SKUs. The T-series chip is assessed at up to 106 Watts, which represents less than half the power budget of its elevated siblings, while the Unlocked CPU is rated at up to 253W, and the Non-K is placed at up to 219W.
The Intel Core i9-13900T keeps that very same core setup of 24 cores, 8 P-cores, 16 E-cores, 32 threads, 1.10 GHz base clock, 5.30 GHz boost clock, and 68 MB of L2+L3 cache. The CPU is also available for $549.00 US, a marginally lower price. With 64 GB of DDR5 memory and an ASUS TUF Gaming B660M-PLUS WIFI board, the CPU is now tested in the Geekbench 5 benchmark.
The CPU received 17339 points in the multi-core test and 2178 points in the single-core test. We used the Intel Core i9-12900K as a benchmark for comparison, scoring 1901 in single-core testing and 17272 in multi-core testing. This results in the Intel Core i9-13900T being up to 15% faster in single-core tests and marginally more quickly in multi-threaded tests, which is impressive considering that the Core i9-12900K furthermore has a higher 125W base TDP (3.58x higher) and a peak TDP rating of 241W. (2.27x higher).
This demonstrates the enormous utilization of Intel’s 10nm ESF system node and the newly designed architecture pack. We should also see comparable outcomes with the accessibility lineup, particularly the 13th Gen HX sections that will start shipping in enthusiast-grade gaming laptops in the following months. Along with the Zen 4 core architecture, AMD also unveiled its brand-new 65W Ryzen 7000 Non-X CPUs, demonstrating a few remarkable performance successes.
